Barely a few days after Tessica Brown was rescued by a free treatment from a plastic surgeon after using Gorilla Glue on her hair, another TikToker has now landed in the hospital after she jumped on the Gorilla Glue bandwagon — saying she “accidentally” applied the heavy-duty adhesive to her hair.
Avani Reyes whining in one of several clips posted online said “I don’t know what to do. This was an accident. I didn’t mean to put Gorilla Glue in my hair”.
“I need to go to the hospital so they can remove this Gorilla Glue. I have no idea what to do. I tried washing it, it doesn’t come off,” she says, adding that her “scalp is burning.”
But Reyes’ sticky predicament, which follows that of “Gorilla Glue girl” Tessica Brown, has many people saying her story seems a little hairy — and that the TikToker is trying to score her own 15 minutes of fame.
“I followed you just you seemed like a great person. But you willingly did that after it happened to that lady. & you have the audacity to ask people,” one user said.
“Are you just mocking the other person that did this or did this really happen? Either way it’s wrong. you went to the hospital and wasted there (sic) time,” another said.
And a third said simply: “I hope it never comes out.”
Reyes, who has over 459,000 followers on the video-sharing app, later followed up, claiming the hospital “did nothing.”
“I just got out of the hospital and they did nothing for me. Look at my hair,” she says in the clip.
“You guys know it’s definitely been a journey with this Gorilla Glue. It’s been crazy, so thank you so much,” she says.
Brown became an internet sensation after her ordeal and raised nearly $24,000 to pay for her medical bills but said she’d donate most of it to charity.
