"The Vampire Diaries" Stars Paul Wesley And Matthew Davis Debated Politics On Twitter And It Got Ugly

So much for leaving the drama in Mystic Falls.

Even among friends and family, there are some topics people believe should be avoided at all costs, and one of them is politics.

Well, that didn't stop The Vampire Diaries stars Paul Wesley and Matthew Davis from getting into a Twitter exchange about the VP debate last night. Let's just say, the fangs came out!

It all started when Matthew, 42, sent this tweet about the debate moderator, Susan Page, cutting off vice president Mike Pence before he finished his thoughts.

Matthew's tweet that reads, "It'd be nice if the moderator would stop interrupting Pence and let him finish his point"

To which Paul, 38, responded:

@ImMatthew_Davis It would also be nice if pence answered the question he was originally asked rather than deflecting.

Matthew has since deleted his string of tweets, but things seemed to get a little heated between the two as they went back and forth.

Okay, maybe "heated" was a little dramatic, but their exchange was definitely lukewarm at best!

At this point, Matthew, who currently stars on The Vampire Diaries spinoff, Legacies, then decided to direct his anger toward his former costar:

Matthew's tweet that reads, "Paul likes to vote for criminals and losers, just like he did in 2016. Your opinion on the matter carries little weight as fas as I'm concerned"
Twitter / Via Twitter: @kanejskaz

Paul followed up with a witty response, insinuating Trump was the real "criminal."

@ImMatthew_Davis You’re mistaken! I didn’t vote for trump in 2016!

He went on to make a joke about Matthew's TVD/Legacies character, but Matthew wasn't amused.

@ImMatthew_Davis Lighten up baby boy u know u miss me

But it didn't end there. Matthew then shared screenshots of tweets he'd been receiving from people who he assumed to be Paul Wesley fans. Matthew tagged the Tell Me a Story star in them, with this caption, "Your fans are real class. You should be proud."

Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer

To which Paul responded:

@ImMatthew_Davis No buddy - that’s low hanging fruit. Why would I be proud/ condone that? You’re better than that Ernesto. Screen grabbing garbage and tweeting at me won’t buy u any points.

Finally tired of the back and forth, Paul ended the convo on a nice note.

Whew, this stressed me out! Let's just hope they were able to call each other and talk things out afterward.
