So when some fans took to Ian's Instagram to bash Nikki, it looks like he finally had enough.
"You HATE NIKKI REED? Really? Do you know her? Hmmmm, I'm not sure that you do. Look on her Instagram feed or twitter and all you will see is a compassionate and beautiful human being," Ian wrote in a lengthy comment. "Please put your negative energy elsewhere. You don't even know the person you're talking about."
He also appeared to make a few of the commenters feel guilty about their negative comments.
"Do you care about me? Ask yourself that question. What's the answer? Is it yes? If it is-- then please be happy for me. ... Do your research of the person you say sucks or you HATE. You'll find that she's a magical person doing great things in the world. If you hate Nikki than you must hate me ... That's sad."
