    Good question Ian raised and I don’t know the answer. Why so many shootings, either in theaters, college or schools? Violence is all over the world but what happens in US? =(

    Ian Somerhalder is a fucking idiot. He manages to contradict himself each time he opens his mouth. Did he forget that his show about blood sucking monsters is geared towards teenagers and young adults? God knows kids are watching it too. He makes a living off of playing a guy who murders people for fun and revels in drinking their blood. Unless he wants to cop to being a hypocrite, he’s saying that his livelihood is part of the problem.
