'The Vampire Diaries' actors Matt Davis and Paul Wesley might not be friends anymore, thanks to the vice presidential debate. While Davis appeared to back incumbent VP Mike Pence during the face-off on Wendesday, October 7, Wesley clearly supported Democratic nominee Kamala Harris. As a result, both of them ended up in a bitter Twitter feud that went viral.

It all started when Davis wrote in a presently deleted tweet, "It be nice if the moderator would stop interrupting Pence and let him finish his point," to which Welsey replied, "It would also be nice if pence answered the question he was originally asked rather than deflect." Fans of the now discontinued show were already reeling from the fact that Davis, who played the beloved character of Alaric on the show seemed to be a Trump supporter, when more attacks from both sides followed.

"Paul likes to vote for criminals and losers just like he did in 2016. Your opinion on the matter carries little weight as far as I am concerned. Next," tweeted Davis in yet another deleted post. Wesley made a witty comeback with, "You're mistaken. I didn't vote for trump in 2016." Wesley then went onto make a reference from their old show saying, "Guys Alaric drank some vervain, he's losing it," alluding to the herb which was considered poisonous for vampires in the show and made them weak. To this, Davis, wrote, "Yawn" following by a yawning emoji. Wesley, in reply, tweeted, "Lighten up baby boy you know you miss me." He finally ended the feud on a good note, tweeting, "@ImMatthew_Davis love you buddy"

Watching their favorite actors from the show going at each other's throats, especially when their characters shared a brotherly bond on the series. Even more bizarre for some of the fans - most of whom took screenshots as proof of the feud between Davis and Wesley - was the discovery that the actor who played Alaric is a Trump supporter. 

"Stefan and alaric fighting in 2020 because alaric is a real life Trump supporter omg...." one wrote, while another said, "Paul wesley out here dragging matt davis right now, the hero we needed" A third commented, "Who had Paul Wesley dragging Matthew Davis on their 2020 bingo card?" There were also a few memes that popped up in reference to the feud. One of them was captioned, "Paul wesley reading the hate comments matt davis is getting"
