Apparently, it can. The TikToker who put Gorilla Glue in her hair and became an internet sensation, Tessica Brown AKA Gorilla Glue Girl, is a 40-year-old teacher… with five kids!
What?! None of what I just wrote makes any sense!
Brown, who finally got the Gorilla Glue out of her hair after a month of suffering, thanks to Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Obeng, is freaking 40!
Honestly, if I were to have put a wager down on how old she is I would have guessed somewhere between 18 and 24.
I’m not the only one who thought that too. The internet is struggling hard to comprehend this new bit of information.

This gorilla glue convo should’ve stopped days ago, especially when you found that the woman is 40 years old.— Scam Allardyce (@Nigerianscamsss) February 8, 2021
Nah I don't feel bad for her at age 40 you know what the hell gorilla glue is used for. She knew what she was doing. She wanted clout and money and ended up getting both. smh— Yanni (@Askaboutyanni1) February 8, 2021
As for how she finally became freed from the Gorilla Glue, Dr. Obeng says he used a combination of medical grade adhesive remover, aloe vera, olive oil and acetone. He knew it would work because he tested it out on a dummy before putting it on Brown and voila! He didn’t even have to shave her head!
A rep for Gorilla Glue told TMZ, “We are glad that Miss Brown was able to be treated and we hope that she is doing well.”
Brown, who says she didn’t pull this Gorilla Glue stunt to gain social media clout, it was purely a terrible mistake, looks like she isn’t going to need all those wigs she raised almost $22,000 on GoFundMe to buy.
