WATCH: Residents of several California communities were forced to evacuate their homes in 2020 as the El Dorado Fire, sparked by a gender reveal, continued to push into the San Bernardino Mountains on Sept. 14, reports said – Sep 16, 2020
Jenna Karvunidis, the blogger who launched the trend in 2008, has repeatedly said she regrets what she started and wants it to end.
Karvunidis shared one of these pleas on Sep. 7, 2020, when ash from the El Dorado Fire was falling around her California home.
“I’m getting a lot of hateful messages about the gender reveal party that set California on fire,” she tweeted. “Could we just stop having these stupid parties and the problem would solve itself?”
