Ian Somerhalder has taken some online comments about his girlfriend, Nikki Reed very seriously indeed.
After some of his fans commented on a photo on his Instagram account saying they hated his current girl, he hit back – hard: “You HATE NIKKI REED? Really? Do you know her? Hmmmm, I’m not sure that you do. Look at her Instagram feed or Twitter and all you will see is a compassionate and beautiful human being. Please put your negative energy elsewhere. You don’t even know the person you’re talking about.”
The actor didn’t stop there and continued his display of loyalty for Nikki (swoon!): “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. Do some research of the person you say sucks or you HATE. You’ll find she’s a magical person doing great things in the world."
But that wasn’t it…
“I’m sickened and saddened by the the fans’ response to all this. My fans have stood up to 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 you must hate me… That’s sad. Have an amazing day!”
Um, wow. She’s an even luckier lady than we previously thought! What a sweetheart.
