45 Of The Most Savage ‘Gender Reveal Party’ Memes After People Learned It Was The Cause Of An Apocalyptic Wildfire In California

Laughing while crying tears of sadness seems to be the name of the game in 2020. Americans are battling the intense wildfires that are ravaging the West Coast, turning the sky red, and forcing hundreds of thousands of people to flee their homes.

Meanwhile, internet users have been mercilessly poking fun at gender reveal parties after one such event led to the outbreak of a massive fire in Southern California. The El Dorado Fire started because of a pyrotechnic device on September 5 and has since then burned over 13.5k acres of land.

Scroll down, upvote your fave memes, and let us know what you think of them and gender reveal parties in the comments. And if you’re currently somewhere on the West Coast, stay safe, dear Pandas!

The fire began during a family photoshoot at El Dorado Ranch Park in Yucaipa, around 70 miles east of Los Angeles, after a smoke device ignited the nearby brush. Since then, the fire has spread, and only around a third of it has been contained as of September 10.

“In my 30 years as a citizen in Yucaipa, I have never seen such a large fire. As a retired firefighter with 32 years of experience, I can assure you I witnessed one of the most dangerous fires that we can have in this area,” said Yucaipa Mayor David Avila.

The sad thing is, this isn’t the only gender reveal party to have started a fire. Back in 2017, a party in Arizona led to a wildfire that razed 47k acres after a man shot an explosive substance at a target. He was ordered to repay around 8 million dollars in damages.

Right now, there are more than 100 wildfires rampaging through 12 western US states currently, reports the BBC. The National Interagency Fire Center states that 4.4 million acres of land have been burned.

California, Oregon, and Washington have been affected the hardest. At least 15 people have died from wildfires in these three states and 500k Oregonians are leaving their homes behind and evacuating to safety.
