Spencer Pratt Reminds Us Why We Don't Like Him With Stupid Comment About 9/11

Well at least he had enough sense to apologize. Spencer Pratt apologized on Friday for his remarks comparing the cancellation of The Hills to the terrorist attacks on 9/11. I mean, we know you had it rough when your reality series got canceled, Spence, but come on. It wasn't exactly a massive terrorist attack on US soil that still shakes the nation a decade and half later.


In an extensive profile in Vice's Broadly, the villain of The Hills compared the show's cancellation in 2010 to the massacre that occurred on September 11, 2001. 

"[The Hills getting canceled] was our 9/11," Pratt said, reminiscing on how he and wife Heidi Montag pissed away their millions in the months after the show ended. They now live with his dad, just in case you were wondering, and he jokes about their current net worth being about $10.

The backlash was swift, undoubtedly prompting his apology on Twitter. The 32-year-old posted a series of tweets, calling his analogy "dumb." But not before wishing some other controversial headline-makers were in the news instead of him.

Personally, I would have preferred that he apologize for being a narcissistic sycophant, but at least this was something.
