Tessica Brown, also known as the “Gorilla Glue Girl” has gone viral on TikTok, Instagram, and Twitter after uploading a video of her explaining how she used Gorilla Glue spray instead of normal hairspray, showing off the disastrous results. Now, she’s going to hospital to get it fixed.

Sometimes you can’t find exactly what you’re looking for in life. You either grab the next best thing, or you go without, so you have to make a quick decision. Unfortunately, it seems like one TikToker made a grave mistake when using a substitute for her hairspray.

In a now-viral video, TikTok user ‘im_d_ollady’ explained how, when she ran out of Got2B Glued hairspray, she grabbed a can of Gorilla Glue spray and used it on her hair, instead.

The result is as disastrous as you might expect. The glue has locked her hair in place completely, and it’s almost impossible to get out.

In a new viral video, one TikTok user described how she used Gorilla Glue as hairspray.

While Gorilla Glue is normally sold in a paste form and is known for being incredibly strong, the version she used on her hair was a spray version, which, according to the company, delivers a “clear, permanent bond that’s moisture resistant.” This is going nowhere without serious help.

According to Brown, she’s attempted to wash her hair fifteen times to no avail, and that it’s been stuck this way for around a month now. Currently, it’s unclear what solution, if any, would help her in this situation.

Regardless, the video has garnered massive attention online. In less than 24 hours, the video has managed to get over 5 million views and 1.4 million likes on TikTok.

That’s not counting the numerous re-uploads on across other social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook.

Thankfully, she’s getting help. She’s checked into a hospital, and doctors are trying to help her figure out how to get the glue out of her hair. Her Instagram post of her getting treatment has reached 150,000 likes in under 12 hours.

Gorilla Glue officially responds

On February 8, the official Gorilla Glue Twitter account released a statement responding to Brown’s “hairy” situation, explaining that their spray-on product is permanent and not for use on hair.

That being said, the brand also wished the poor TikToker the best as she continues to undergo treatment at a medical facility to remove the glue from her hair.

Plastic surgeon offers free procedure to remove Gorilla Glue

On February 9, it was reported that Beverly Hills-based plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Obeng has offered to try his hand at removing the product from Brown’s hair.

Dr. Obeng claimed that the procedure might take two to three days, but there’s no need for Tessica to fret about expenses; the doc also stated that he’d completely cover the cost of the treatment, although estimates price the remedy at $12,500.

As for how he’ll do it? Dr. Obeng claimed he’ll use medical-grade glue remover to try his hand at helping Brown’s sticky scenario, which will hopefully be resolved thanks to his forthcoming efforts.

Tessica Brown finally gets Gorilla Glue removed from her hair

On February 11, it was revealed that Tessica was finally able to get the adhesive product removed from her hair via plastic surgery, with a video taken after the procedure showing the TikToker running a hand through her hair for the first time in weeks.

Although she unfortunately lost her hard-won length, with her ponytail having been cut off as a result of the Gorilla Glue mishap, it looks like things turned out well in the end. Let this be a lesson to anyone hoping to replace their favorite hair gel with crafting supplies – don’t do it!

Notorious TikTok vegan That Vegan Teacher has created a video response after being banned on the platform for allegedly violating several community guidelines.

That Vegan Teacher, real name Kadie Karen Diekmeyer, has clocked up around 1.5m followers on the app and is known for her very firm vegan beliefs, which she frequently preaches on the app.

She’s also had several run-ins with other top names — including, notably, Minecraft sensation 16-year-old TommyInnit, whose fans bombarded her with hate comments after she suggested someone help him feel more comfortable around girls.

Now, after rumors that she had been arrested in January 2021 (which was proven false), she seems to have been banned from the app altogether.

Why was That Vegan Teacher banned on TikTok?

At the time of writing, there’s no clear explanation as to why That Vegan Teacher has been banned on TikTok, with neither her nor TikTok coming out with an explanation.

While the reason hasn’t been confirmed, a disclaimer on her TikTok profile suggests it’s due to multiple Community Guidelines violations.

This could be any number of things, so it’s impossible to speculate on what exactly the violations could be, and we’ll have to wait for official confirmation before reporting it. According to TikTok’s guidelines though, her misdemeanor could fall under any of these categories:

  • Violent extremism
  • Hateful behavior
  • Illegal activities and regulated goods
  • Violent and graphic content
  • Suicide, self harm and dangerous acts
  • Harassment and bullying
  • Adult nudity and sexual activities
  • Minor safety
  • Integrity and authenticity
  • Platform security

That Vegan Teacher has in the past had her videos reacted to by top celebrities such as Gordon Ramsay, who didn’t seem her biggest fan, and Russell Brand for her divisive takes.

That Vegan Teacher responds to her TikTok ban

A short time later, That Vegan Teacher created a video response to the situation, which she uploaded to YouTube with all comments and likes/dislikes turned off.

In her video, the controversial TikToker accused her critics of being “scared” of telling kids “the truth” about veganism, and alleged that her ban was the work of “veganphobic” users. In her video description, she also alleged that her home had been “attacked” by critics, who left “dead animal parts” on her front door and – even purportedly doxed her personal information.

That’s not all; some TikTokers believe that Vegan Teacher may have started using a new TikTok account, although these rumors have yet to be fully verified at the time of writing.

Previously, she has drawn comparisons between animal cruelty and atrocities such as the Holocaust, which is likely a large contributor to why TikTok users would report her and the platform would ultimately kick her off.
