'Vampire Diaries' Actors Paul Wesley and Matthew Davis Clashed Over the Vice Presidential Debate

Much can be said about Kamala Harris and Mike Pence’s vice presidential debate last night—her hair spoke volumes, the fly was symbolic, fracking = bad for the environment— and former Vampire Diaries actors Paul Wesley and Matthew Davis got into a tiff voicing their opinions on Twitter.

Apparently, as Davis (Alaric Saltzman) watched, he was most bothered by Donald Trump’s running mate allegedly not having enough speaking time. In since-deleted tweets, Davis suggested Pence was interrupted too much by the moderator. Calling out Pence, Wesley (Stefan Salvatore) responded, “It would also be nice if pence answered the question he was originally asked rather than deflecting.”

Things quickly escalated from there with Davis claiming, “Paul likes to vote for criminals and losers, just like he did in 2016. Your opinion on the matter carries little weight as far as I’m concerned. Next.” He later deleted that as well.

To try and shut down Davis’ claims, Wesley then made a TVD joke and said, “Guys Alaric drank some vervain he’s losing it,” which was a reference to the herb characters use to protect themselves from being compelled and controlled by vampires. BTW, Wesley also made sure to clarify that he did not vote for Trump in 2016.

Their virtual argument also involved Davis taking jabs at Wesley’s fans and sarcastically calling them “super classy” and signaling his boredom by typing “yawn.” It seems that at that point, Wesley decided to move on and finished with, “Lighten up baby boy u know u miss me. @ImMatthew_Davis love you buddy.”
