These two are so frickin cute together I almost cannot stand it.
Some jerks used his Instagram to make mean comments about Nikki. For no other reason than being jealous, probably. And Ian took them to task. Awesome.
“You HATE NIKKI REED? Really? Do you know her? Hmmmm, I’m not sure that you do. Look on her Instagram feed or twitter and all you will see is a compassionate and beautiful human being,” Somerhalder, 35, wrote. “Please put your negative energy elsewhere. You don’t even know the person you’re talking about.”
Assuming the internet trolls were his fans, Somerhalder asked the women, “Do you care about me? Ask yourself that question. What’s the answer? Is it yes? If it is—then please be happy for me. Stop this nonsense—you’re spreading horrible energy into the world,” he wrote. “Do some research of the person you say sucks or you HATE. You’ll find that she’s a magical person doing great things in the world.”
“I’m sickened and saddened by the fans’ response to all this. Many fans have stood up people like you and tried to empower you with some compassion. If we all thought a little or [learned] a little about people before we spoke about them, the world wouldn’t be so upside down and in the worst place in history. If you hate Nikki then you must hate me…That’s sad. Have an amazing day!”
So sweet of him to defend her like that. She seems like a pretty cool chick, to me. And I’m a huge Somerhalder fan (like, I cannot miss Vampire Diaries for anything. Including child birth). So, people should stop just making mean internet comments and get a real life. Because it doesn’t look like she’s going anywhere soon.
