Coral learns that night, that her friend had been using ORS Oil Sheen Spray as a cooking spray. Needless to say, it went viral when friend Roisin tweeted the message Coral had sent of the incident, and the reactions are exactly what you would expect:
Using sheen spray as cooking oil .. please don't let my grandma hear this, it'll be her thesis statement on "DON'T EAT AT OTHER FOLKS HOUSE"— Liz❤ (@e_lizabeth__) June 7, 2016
Special PSA to my great friends: ORS Olive Oil Hair Sheen is kinda flammable, probably toxic. Not for your eggs. https://t.co/HcnRfAqrgp— George (@annalaurelei) June 7, 2016

Meanwhile it's some Afro-Carribiean ladies in the UK not able to find the damn ORS Olive Oil hairspray and they are PISSED!— Kasey (@bastylefilegirl) June 7, 2016
The photo of the sheen spray incorrectly merchandised in the cooking aisle of a Walmart could be the explanation for Coral’s friend’s confusion.
