"For the last few years we thought addressing any baseless rumors with silence was the best way. Besides, who wants to respond to made up stories about 'friends backstabbing friends,' 'cheating exes,' or 'cast members exiting shows' on low-brow websites like HollywoodLife that are just perpetuating trends that preceded us," the 28-year-old actress, who tied the knot with Somerhalder in April 2015, shared. "Yuck. I now see that silence was taken as an opportunity to fill in the blanks with even more falsities, and juicer stories, and we, yes WE, believe we have a moral responsibility to young girls to end that narrative, because at the end of all of this, those young girls are the ones who lose."

"Their passion and endless devotion for a TV show is being taken advantage of, replaced with feelings of anger through divisive techniques, & even worse, their minds are being shaped & molded as their view of themselves, other girls, & what those dynamics should look like are being formed," Reed continued. "So here's to putting an end to all those fake stories of on set jealousy, betrayal, made-up-friendships lost & women hating women. Because at the end of the day, that's what this is about: teaching girls that you have to hate other girls only breeds a generation of women who believe you have to hate other women."

"And that's what these magazines, websites and blogs don't understand," she added. "That is the harmful unintended consequence of their bullsh*t stories and we have a moral responsibility to fix that. Let's turn this page together, as we all walk into the next chapter peacefully. And finally, let's use this as an example of how important it is to stop this trend of writing horrible headlines about women, painting us as bitter, angry, insecure, heartbroken, childless, feuding, backstabbing monsters because whether we want to admit it or not, it changes the way all women view themselves."

And shame on these websites for now targeting an even younger demographic, instilling this at an earlier age when girls are even more susceptible, more vulnerable and more malleable. When we write these headlines we teach hate. I've seen it firsthand. Let's shift what we put into the universe starting now, & hopefully we will start to see a shift in the way we treat each other & view ourselves❤

Somerhalder re-posted Reed's photo, sharing a similar caption. "Chilling with these two... After years of websites pretending these two badass ladies knew each other well and baseless, false information of back stabbing and hatred from low-brow websites filled the minds and hearts of fans... They finally were able to get together for their first real dinner," he wrote, urging his fans to "stop spreading hate" and "join in" on the love. "Only love here -- always has been always will be. Media companies preying on the passion from vulnerable and or impressionable minds of fans to sell advertising through click-through traffic is a disease in our society. It's poisonous."

"Let's finish this series [Vampire Diaries] with respect and kindness and continue that in our lives," he added. "I think it's time. What do think?"

Dobrev, who dated Somerhalder from 2010 to 2013, also took to Instagram on Tuesday, sharing a sillier version of the selfie. "Can't believe how time flies," she wrote. "Farewell dinner with team Somereed! So good catching up with these goofballs. All ❤"
