Reality Star Heidi Montag Shares Her Views On 'Diversity' – And Twitter Is Screaming

The former "The Hills" star hasn't changed much.

Published March 8, 2019

Fans may remember Heidi Montag for being the spacey, sometimes comically out-of-touch cast member from the early 2000s MTV reality series The Hills. Now, with more than 10 years passing since the show's premiere, it's making a comeback.

While promoting the reboot, Montag shared her thoughts on the lack of diversity reflected in the series, which followed five young and wealthy white women living in Los Angeles. Her comments, though expected, served as a shock to some who thought the now 32-year-old would have intellectually matured by now.

During an interview with Vogue, Montag was asked to share her opinion on the lack of diversity on the show, which also starred the likes of Lauren Conrad, Whitney Port, Audrina Patridge and Kristin Cavallari. After stressing that they "don't all look the same," she followed up with a remark that left many speechless.

"I mean, Audrina has darker hair," she said. "I feel like Mischa [Barton] has darker hair."

After detailing that the "diversity" of the all-white cast was found in the varying shades of their hair follicles, she added that her friend group outside of the show is also "diverse." What that specifically may entail remains a mystery.

"But yeah, we're California girls and it's a group of friends, and that just happened to be the group that came together," she said. "But you know, that's just the way the show was. I have other very diverse friends that are not featured on the show."

Take a look at the clip that has quickly gone viral, below:
