Gender Reveal Party Controversy

Posted: Updated:

MARTIN COUNTY, Ky (LEX 18) Many citizens in Martin County have a lot of questions after a volunteer firefighter and niece of the county judge-executive sprayed a couple hundred gallons of dyed-blue water out of a fire truck for a gender reveal. The video was released while people in the county were reduced to using bottled water to shower.

Lee Gauze, the Chief of the Inez Volunteer Fire Department, says there was no better way for the firefighter and soon-to-be father to reveal the gender. 

"He went to the water department and paid for the water usage that he used," said Gauze. 

While the soon-to-be dad did pay $6.70 for 1,000 gallons of water, residents say that it wasn't good timing to do this when most people in the county have been without water on multiple occasions. 

"When you have people without water, and people have to use bottled water to take showers and stuff. To take a firetruck and to do a gender reveal, is a little bit insensitive, I think," said resident Michael Muncy. "I understand that it's a special occasion for them and they should be happy about it, but like I said, with people without water, it's probably bad timing."
