The actor can be vocal and doesn’t mind sharing his opinions whenever needed. During the Vice Presidential debate, Matthew Davis was voicing his support for Pence, he tweeted that the moderator should let Pence finish his point which prompted Paul Wesley to reply saying that it would be great if Pence answered the questions rather than deflecting them. This resulted in Davis saying that Paul votes for Criminals just like he did in 2016. He further added that Paul’s opinion carries little weight for him. Paul reacted hilariously by saying ‘Alaric is losing it because he drank some Vervain’. Davis responded with some screencaps of unpleasant messages that he received, telling Paul how his fans are ‘Super Classy’. Paul responded by saying ‘Ernesto’, you’re much better than screen grabbing. Paul further tweeted ‘Love you, buddy’.
