TikToker 'Copycat' Who Used Gorilla Glue in Her Hair Accused of Staging Stunt | 22 Words

The TikToker who used Gorilla Glue as hairspray left the world in shock last week, and you'd think that her bizarre story would have deterred others from doing the same, but sadly, that isn't the case...

Avani Reyes has recently been thrust into the spotlight after she decided to do the exact same thing...​

However, while some people felt sorry for the initial woman that did it, they have no sympathy for Reyes as she has been accused of staging the stunt for fame.

And not only was she being accused of doing this for some extra views...

Others have been asking her why she's doing something so stupid for money.

It really does seem like an uncanny coincidence that after Tessica Brown just got her surgery and the story went viral...

Now you want to try such a detrimental thing too knowing what could happen? Yikes.

Keep scrolling for the full video. It's truly shocking.

Now we all know this whole trend started... don't we?

After spending a whole month trying to remove the glue from her hair, she admitted herself to a local hospital in Louisiana. She later uploaded a video to TikTok showing her followers that she'd literally tried everything to remove it.

According to Tessica, she couldn't wash out the glue or even shave her head, due to the hair being so slick against her skin.

Tessica originally posted a video of how it all happened: "When I do my hair, I like to finish it off with a little Göt2b Glued Spray, you know, just to keep it in place.

"Well, I didn't have any more Göt2b Glued Spray, so I used this: Gorilla Glue spray. Bad, bad, bad idea. My hair, it don't move. You hear what I'm telling you? It. Don't. Move."

Gorilla Glue even responded, telling TMZ:

"The less aggressive solvent for her hair/scalp would be rubbing alcohol to try and saturate her hair and then gently comb it out and shampoo."

The company went on to say her hair was "likely fractured at the root," as it had been stuck for such a long time.

They added that Gorilla Glue staff "certainly hope for the best."

In her initial video, which has been viewed over eighteen million times...

Tessica said: "Hey, y'all. For those of you that know me know that my hair has been like this for about a month now. It's not by choice. No, it's not by choice."

At one point in the clip, she pats her head showing just how hard her hair has set.

Some people advised her to wash her hair with shampoo, resulting in Tessica uploading a video showing why that didn't help.

She said: "Look, you wipe it off and nothing happens. Like, this is the life that I'm living at this point."

Of course, we know she ended up getting surgery and things were fine. But it seems as though others are not learning the lesson Tessica had to learn the hard way...

In a video that went viral over the weekend, another TikToker could be seen trying to comb through her hair with little success.

Avani Reyes later posted a video showing herself at the hospital where she went to receive help. She said the staff were not sure how to help, suggesting oils could do the trick.

In a follow-up video on the social platform, she revealed this:

TikTok

"I'm on my way to the hospital right now, my scalp is burning. 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."

Despite trying the oils, she had no luck in removing it...

TikTok

Wow. Shocker. I could have told you that. Tessica already told you that.

But coincidentally enough, she set up a GoFundMe Page for donations right after...

This is so that people could "help with [her] Gorilla Glue situation," saying she might have to have surgery to remove the glue.

Girl, come on!

Of course, a number of TikTok users have been left puzzled as to why Reyes would have glue in her hair...

And others have even accused her of trying to "steal" money from people by disguising it as donations.

Thousands of unsympathetic comments poured in...

TikTok

But if things couldn't get weirder, Reyes recently announced that she'd received enough donations to actually get the glue removed...

One generous (and borderline confused) person even donated $3,000... What?

She said this:

TikTok

"You guys know it's definitely been a journey with this Gorilla Glue. It's been crazy, so thank you so much."

Guys, please be careful as to who you're "donating" money to on the internet.
