Gorilla Glue Girl T-Shirts: Cost, where to buy and how to lay your hands on 'Bonded for Life' merchandise
Tessica Brown has announced that she will donate more than $20,000 from her online fundraiser to charity
Tessica Brown aka 'The Gorilla Glue Girl', who became famous for spraying her hair with Gorilla Glue instead of hairspray, has recently undergone a four-hour critical surgery to remove the superglue. However, she did not wait long to launch a line of exclusive merchandise, cashing in on her own disaster.
Now available online, the 'Bonded for Life' line of clothing is selling t-shirts, hoodies, and sweatpants featuring Brown's viral photo or humorous takes on her critical situation.
Where to buy Bonded for Life merchandise
Interested buyers can head straight to Tessica's new website to access the clothes. According to TMZ, the merchandise is selling like hotcakes and Tessica is making a 'small fortune'. Labeled as 'Ma Merch', the items available on Tessica's website at the moment are basic graphic t-shirts with her viral photo where she can be seen holding her hair that was plastered by Gorilla Glue spray. The tagline 'Bonded for Life' is printed below the photo.
The 'Bonded for Life' t-shirts are available in black and white color variants and a wide range of sizes, priced at $28. There is another tee labeled 'Where Ma Hair' - which is basically a graphic illustration of Tessica holding the spray glue bottle. This t-shirt is also priced at $28. There are 'Where Ma Hair' and 'Bonded for Life' hoodies available as well, in white, black, and gray at $50.
The 'Bonded for Life' sweatpants, which look comfortable and easy-breezy, have their prices set at $45 each.
Why is Tessica Brown being slammed?
Her action of launching a line of merchandise, however, did not bode well with many, who are slamming her for monetizing such a serious situation, especially after she received a free 'lifesaving' surgery from Dr Michael Obeng in Los Angeles.
The critical hair restoration surgery took the renowned surgeon over four hours to complete, which he willingly performed pro-bono.
"I'm confused (Thinking face) I thought Tessica 'gorilla girl' said she just wanted everything to die down, she wasn't out for any type of gain and didn't want publicity. Now, she's selling 'gorilla glue girl' merchandise (Smirking face) It seem like somebody lied (Woman shrugging) #GorillaGlue," tweeted one user.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Tessica had said, “I never was going to take this to social media. The reason I took this to social media was because I didn't know what else to do. And I know somebody out there could have told me something. I didn't think for one second when I got up the next morning it was gonna be everywhere.”

There is also a GoFundMe page started for her medical expenses, which has now accumulated $23,674 in total, while the original goal was at $1500 only.
However, Tessica has announced that she will donate more than $20,000 from the raised amount to Restore Foundation, run by Dr Obeng, which helps people across the world to get reconstructive surgeries.
