The star made several fans cry after refusing photos.
Last week, Ian Somerhalder got in trouble with his fans and the Twitter universe after telling fans that waited hours outside of his hotel room that he didn't want to take photos with them. However, instead of just walking by them like many other celebrities would do, Ian actually stopped and lectured his fans. Ian said, “Hey guys, listen. Everybody stop. No no, listen. I love you guys, I’m not taking a single photo today. It’s MY day. Don’t follow us, please. I love you guys. You’re so good to us … Don’t follow us. It’s too much.”

A fan was able to get a video of the interaction (it is labelled "Zac Efron" for some reason but it is him):
While it is understandable that Ian wants some privacy while on honeymoon with Nikki Reed, the lecture seemed to go over the top and a lot of Somerhalder's fans were upset with him. Feeling their anger, he took to Instagram to apologize:
Looking at the world through my eyes and always trying to see it through yours. I see you. I see all of you and find great beauty in each set of eyes. Anyone who knows me understands that I spend a great deal of my life with our fans. Our audience. The people that make this show and ISF happen- all with hearts, minds bodies and souls. It blows my mind that a man who tried to love so much, a man asking for one day, just one day to have a quiet walk down the street is so upsetting to people. So much love to you all... Goodnight and thank you.

Well he tried to apologize and sounds sincere enough. The whole situation is still amusing. Ian still seems to believe he and Nikki are a power couple. The lecture was rude, but maybe next time Ian will leave out a back door if he truly craves privacy.
