If you haven't heard, recently a fan who messaged boyband One Direction on Twitter, threatening to kill her dog if they didn't follow her. In response, Ian got on his angry face and took to the social media site himself...
He responded with this...
Pls DO NOT do this-NOT FAIR to this animal-You must know that its nearly impossible to see follow requests from fans http://t.co/7qoxmP2iSs— ian somerhalder (@iansomerhalder) September 14, 2013

...But embarrassingly for poor old Ian, it was all hoax!
Now Perez Hilton is reporting that the whole thing was a MASSIVE LOL at animal lovers' expense! But good for you anyway, Smolder-holder! Even if the whole thing was a hoax, this big softie is clearly so caring that he let himself get swept up in it. And this swooning writer loves him even more for speaking his mind and defending all those cuddly pups!
What do you think of Ian's Twitter campaigning? Isn't he just adorable?!
