‘Gorilla Glue Girl’ Truthers Are a Thing, and Tessica Brown Might Sue Them

Tessica Brown is essentially a laughing stock. The woman sprayed Gorilla Glue on her hair because she ran out of hair spray. That’s a stupid thing to do and it’s perfectly rational reaction to call it stupid and laugh.

Of course, it’s also natural to have empathy for Brown once you see how fantastically heinous her f**k-up actually was. I thought she was going to have to shave her hair off and start again, but it turned out she couldn’t even do that because her hair ended up glued to her head.

In the end, a cosmetic surgeon had to whip up a concoction mainly comprised of a medical-grade solvent to remove the polyethylene glue over the course of four hours. This would have cost thousands of dollars if the kindly doctor hadn’t taken pity on Brown and done it pro-bono.

Brown did raise a lot of money from people who wanted to help her, but she’s giving that money to charity, less what she actually spent in expenses getting her hair fixed.

Basically, she didn’t really get anything out of this whole saga except made of by jerks like me. So why would she have made it up?

Yet some people insist she did make it up, notably Gossip of the City, a social media blogger on Twitter and Instagram.

Brown is so sick of GotC’s insistence that she made it up that TMZ reports she sent him a cease-and-desist order.

@gossipofthecity_ even acknowledged the cease and desist in a separate post, calling it a fake. We’ve been assured by Tessica’s team, though, that it is very much real … and they mean business.

This is a really weird hill for someone to die on, honestly. Like, the people who insisted Barack Obama was born in Kenya and thus ineligible to be president would at least get something out of being right (which they weren’t, in a number of ways). There’s really nothing to be gained by anyone here.
