A TikToker has landed in the hospital after she jumped on the Gorilla Glue bandwagon — saying she “accidentally” applied the heavy-duty adhesive to her hair.
“I don’t know what to do. This was an accident. I didn’t mean to put Gorilla Glue in my hair,” Avani Reyes whines in one of several clips posted to the site.
“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.
Reyes said she was advised to try olive oil, tea tree oil, or coconut oil to remove the gunk — despite Brown’s similar unsuccessful attempts before Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Obeng performed a $12,500 surgery for free to rid her hair of the glue.
“I used coconut oil for like a half an hour and then I just washed my hair and there is still Gorilla Glue in my head. Guess I gotta go bald,” adds the woman, who claimed she has raised enough money to travel to LA to get surgery like Brown.
She even claimed one generous benefactor donated $3,000 to her cause.
“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 — who has hired an agent amid all the publicity — raised nearly $24,000 to pay for her medical bills but said she’d donate most of it to charity.
