Grimsby Town boss speaks out on Montel Gibson gender reveal party controversy

Grimsby Town Football Club boss Paul Hurst has spoken out today about the controversy surrounding player Montel Gibson’s gender reveal party at the weekend, which he shared to social media.

Gibson posted videos of numerous people gathered for the gender reveal party on social media sites Instagram and TikTok, which have since been deleted by the Town player.

The move caused outrage among members of the public due to the clear breach of Covid-19 restrictions.

In an interview with BBC Humberside Sport today ahead of the match tomorrow, Hurst commented on the Montel Gibson gender reveal party controversy:

“The club are investigating. Clearly it’s something that doesn’t look good at all, something that we certainly don’t condone.

“As a football club, the situation is being investigated. I haven’t seen the things myself but I’ve been made aware of that. He’s on loan at Altrincham at the minute, and that’s not dismissing anything to do with the situation, but he’s not in with us.

“Clearly it’s against policy. The rules are present and to say that you’re disappointed in it would probably be an understatement. You have to wonder sometimes what’s going through people’s minds and what actions they take.

“So I’m 100 percent disappointed and like I said, it’s being investigated. Until further notice I can’t really say much more about it, other than it’s something that we’re all disappointed with.”

GTFC will play against Barrow at 7pm tomorrow night.
