“Vanderpump Rules” star Lala Kent and her fiancé Randall Emmett may be excited to celebrate the news that they’re expecting a little baby girl together, but some fans of the couple found the timing of their announcement to be in poor taste.

The news was confirmed in videos posted to both Kent and Emmett’s Instagram accounts, and while most of their followers showed excitement over the pair’s news, others questioned the pair about doing a gender reveal at all after news that a similar party was the reason for the start of the massive El Dorado fire in Yucaipa, California over Labor Day weekend.

“Thanks for not burning the California forests down for this one la la,” one fan commented on her post.

Comments were also left on a post on Emmett’s page prior to the reveal, where he questioned fans about whether or not they thought the couple was having a boy or a girl.

“Please do it safely without the possibility of fire...thank you,” one wrote.

“Just not a fire plz,” another commented.

“Pls don’t start a fire,” a third added.

“Just don’t light the country on fire,” an additional follower said.

However, that post also received flack because of the timing that it went up—which coincided with the news breaking that Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg had died. One fan in particular felt the announcement of their gender reveal at the same time was a selfish move.

“We just lost RBG, seriously? Y’all so self involved!” the fan wrote.

The couple has been engaged since 2018 and had planned on marrying in April this year. However, due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, they were forced to postpone their nuptials. They had initially postponed to July but were forced to change their plans again as the pandemic continued. US Weekly confirmed in August that the two had then rescheduled for July of 2021.
