WATCH: ‘SNL’ Gives Its Take On ‘The Gorilla Glue Girl’
Actress Regina King made her Saturday Nigh Live hosting debut last weekend.
In one of the most memorable sketches of the night, King was joined by Kenan Thompson playing lawyers in a commercial encouraging people to come forward who have accidentally used Gorilla Glue in their hair and join them in pursuing action against the company.
“Face. Everyday, as many as one people fall victim to using Gorilla Glue in place of a beauty product,” King said in the sketch. “And they deserve compensation.”
“We all do. You should not have to go through life with hair like a LEGO man instead of that wave grease,” Thompson added.
Earlier in the month, Tessica Brown went viral after she posted that she used Gorilla Glue in her hair after she ran out of her usual hairspray. She was unable to remove the glue from her head and ended up in the emergency room. A Beverly Hills plastic surgeon ended up performing a procedure on her to remove the glue using several products to weaken and remove the glue. The surgeon did the procedure at no charge to Brown.
King appeared in several other sketches throughout the show with Nathaniel Rateliff.
Bridgerton’s Rege-Jean Page will host SNL next week with Bad Bunny as the musical guest.
