The 'Vampire Diaries' hunk complains about day-after-Thanksgiving discount shopping on Twitter as writing, 'thousands of families missing out on family time.'
While many Americans look forward to Black Friday, Ian Somerhalder obviously doesn't share the same sentiment. In fact, the actor playing Damon Salvatore on "The Vampire Diaries" explained on his recent Twitter post why he is not grateful for "the midnight black Friday c**p".
"Good night world happy thanks giving," the 32-year-old tweeted on late Wednesday, November 23 night. "Im NOT grateful for is the midnight black Friday crap-thousands of families missing out on family time." He followed it up with another tweet that bashes stores for taking away the true meaning of the holiday. "Stores should be ashamed," so he wrote.
In the same tweet, Ian continued to share his opinion. "Family Is all we have," he noted, "the foundation of our country and our world.Just my 2 cents,may not matter but I said it." Hours later, he posted, "Happy Thanksgiving you amazing people. Truly a day for thankfulness and family. NOT what you are buy people for xmas...Right?"
