Tessica Brown, best known as “Gorilla Glue Girl,” has fired off a cease and desist to shut down the viral tune, “Bad Idea.”
If you peruse the streets of social media regularly, I’m pretty sure you’ve heard the song by now that samples Tessica saying, “My hair…it don’t move,” from her infamous Gorilla Glue video.
The remix was created by Cocoa Brown and I must admit it’s a bop.
The song has gone viral on social media apps like TikTok and IG Reels. It’s even available on streaming platforms like Apple Music and Spotify and that’s where the issue comes in.
Cocoa Brown is being accused of copyright infringement for making a profit off of Tessica Brown’s voice without her permission.
The legal doc, sent from her attorney reads:
To the extent it becomes necessary, Tessica intends to seek the recovery of all penalties, statutory damages and punitive damages for such knowing infringement as applicable.
As tired as I am of Tessica Brown and her lingering 15 minutes of fame, I cannot fault her for not allowing someone to make a profit off of her stupidity.
