Please, let’s not make the Gorilla Glue Challenge a thing.
Every week there appears to be a new viral challenge on social media, ranging from innocent to ridiculously dangerous. Case in point, the new Gorilla Glue Challenge inspired by Tessica Brown (also known as Gorilla Glue girl).
ICYMI, a woman recently went viral after revealing she used Gorilla Glue on her hair instead of hairspray. Gorilla Glue is a permanent adhesive commonly used on wood, laminate and bathroom tiles – it definitely should not be used on the skin or hair. Basically, Tessica’s hair became permanently stuck to her head and she ended up having to cut it off and have surgery. The gripping ordeal looked incredibly painful and Tessica was even considering legal action against Gorilla Glue.
You would think that’s enough to put anyone off misusing Gorilla Glue, right? No, now it’s started a whole challenge. Here’s what it involves.
