Internet-famous Tessica Brown’s family bond is stronger than any glue. The woman’s immediate relatives have rallied around the woman to offer support after her now-infamous hair debacle with Gorilla Glue.
According to People Magazine, Brown’s sisters and mom did a big chop on their tresses to stand in solidarity with their sibling and daughter.
Tessica’s sisters Juanita Brown, Erica Brown, Jamie Sino and Rose Hayes, along with their mother Jessica Brown, snapped a uber-cute photo of their new crop cuts and posted it on social media, the publication reported. In the picture, the women were all smiles from their Violet, Louisiana, home.
Brown’s had her notorious plastered-ponytail removed earlier this month by Michael Obeng, a Black plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills, as Black Enterprise previously reported. She now sports a close crop cut also.
Since the incident, the 40-year-old mother of five has amassed over a half-million followers on social media, and she secured an agent.
In the aftermath of the Gorilla Glue occurrence, Brown reflected on her newfound fame’s pros and cons.
According to Vox, the woman has lost weight due to stress, although she tries to maintain a positive attitude. Brown also hates being referred to as “the Gorilla Girl.”
She spoke about the impact that the situation has had on her children, the publication reported. The youngsters are being teased at school as well.
“Clout is something I will never chase, I promise you,” she said. “[The dance team] was in a commercial. They were in the newspaper. They were in a magazine. That’s enough clout for me. I don’t need all of this because this was just way, way too much. And truly, who would want to go through the pain that I went through for clout,” Brown asked in her interview with Vox.
Brown’s current goal is to help others.
“I’m going to use my platform to try to let everybody know you’re not your hair because I’m not my hair at this point,” she said. “If you’re a beautiful person inside, you’ll be that same beautiful person on the outside.”
