A video surfaced online showing Ian Somerhalder turning down fans for pics in Paris, bringing at least one of them to tears and many of his fans weren’t happy about it.

In the clip, Ian can be seen telling fans he loved them, but wanted privacy. “I love you guys. I’m not taking a single photo today. It’s my day,” he told the group as he left a building with wife Nikki Reed.

“Don’t follow us, please. I love you guys. Do not follow us. Okay? It’s too much. It’s too much.”

A young woman asked him for “just one” photo, and he refused, saying, “it’s not just one,” which caused her to cry.

Many of them bashed him on social media after the video spread across the internet like wildfire.

Because of the backlash, Ian posted a response to fans on Instagram this past weekend:

Looking at the world through my eyes and always trying to see it through yours. I see you. I see all of you and find great beauty in each set of eyes. Anyone who knows me understands that I spend a great deal of my life with our fans. Our audience. The people that make this show and ISF happen- all with hearts, minds bodies and souls. It blows my mind that a man who tried to love so much, a man asking for one day, just one day to have a quiet walk down the street is so upsetting to people. So much love to you all… Goodnight and thank you.
