  1. Gender reveal parties are ridiculously stupid, even without starting fires.

    • Wow, all that destruction over human reproduction. A party so that woman can celebrate the fact that a man stuck his junk inside of her, and knocked her up. As if that’s something special. Then again, maybe this mom weighs 500 pounds, and the fact that should found a man willing to bang her was a miracle in itself. And she literally set the world on fire so that everyone would know that her egg got fertilized with male sperm. Real nice, I’m sure all those people whose property got destroyed are happy that a female pulled down her pants and let a male insert his junk inside of her.

    • Gender reveal parties are just another way to shake down your friends and family for more gifts.

    • @ML That is why blue collar people should never befriend yuppies. I’ll take beer and cribbage and horseshoes over shopping for gifts.

    • Yeah…but bet u dont light the entire world doing it do u sunshine…lol

    • Whose coming are they celebrating, the Antichrist.

  2. Dang the kid not even born yet and they already ruined his or her future

    Charge them. They literally made people homeless during a pandemic. Stupid people. What part of no FIRES of any kind. Charge them. Didn’t this happen a few ago years already?

    • I live how some people in this comment section are trying to blame this on trump

    • @samiwuoha what balloons?
      Pink or blue isn’t enuff anymore.

      @Elizabeth Frantes Good morning, perhaps we will all be purple, a really royal people. There has always been homelessness but I’m not sure right now who or what group is responsible for defunding the mental hospitals. Most of the homeless are mentally ill or addicted to drugs. That’s another topic though. I wouldn’t blame one person for homelessnes, there are many factors that go into it and one of them being a lack of compassion for others. LOL, Have a good day..

  4. Really, explosives and other flammable things should be banned during the dry season. People are really get dumb day by day😑

  5. They should be charged and fined. That sucks for a lot of other people. (Putting it lightly)

    • You’re totally right….what would possess someone to do this in California, of all places? It’s been hot there and super dry.

  6. Smokey the Bear says “Don’t have gender reveal parties.”

  7. “Mommy why was i born in jail” ? Well see what happened was……

    I guess the kid’s name is going to be “Char-lie” , “Cole” , or “Burn-ie”.

  9. People like that shouldn’t be allowed to have offspring.

  10. Setting off a fire hazard in the most likely place for a fire to start. What a bonehead move.

  11. I see gender reveals in parks near me and they end up leaving a mess all over the place. When did this stupid fad become such a thing? And why do people think it’s ok to trash the place just because they have something to celebrate?

  12. This is why we need more gender-fluid people. They could’ve put the fire out.

  13. That kid when He/She will go up they will be like “Frick.. my parents are stupid”

  14. Gender reveal spectacle: why is this still a thing?

    • WHO. CARES. ffs, how about we focus on folks playing with pyrotechnic devices in the middle of fire season since that’s what burns down forests? instead of boring everyone with an old man rant about how there’s a thing that exists that didn’t used to exist…

    • imacg4 literally the stupidest thing ever 🤨

    • that one girl you probably hate | September 11, 2020 at 1:48 PM | Reply

      Or the parents will brainwash the child, and tell the child that what they did was ok. The child’s gonna become ignorant, and won’t care that his parents did this 😔

    • Ymyname Ynotyourname | September 11, 2020 at 2:38 PM | Reply

      People’s egos. Same reason we have holidays like Christmas. So people can feel special while we trash the planet.

  15. I feel bad for this kid, his whole life is ruined because his parents were idiots

    Fun fact, 99% of fires are caused by humans.

  17. All because some stupid people’s unborn child gender like it’s even gonna matter when they have it🤦‍♂️

  18. _Long ago, California lived in harmony. Then, everything changed when the gender reveal parties attacked._

  19. People like these shouldn’t even have kids in the first place.
