‘Vampire Diaries’ Star, Ian Somerhalder, Threw out His Wife’s Birth Control Without Her Consent and People Are Outraged

t's appalling to have to say this in 2017, but women deserve control over their own bodies.

Period. End of story.

Vampire Diaries actor Ian Somerhalder and his wife, Twilight actress Nikki Reed, recently appeared on Dr. Berlin's Informed Pregnancy Podcast, where they chit-chatted about their relationship and pregnancy with their first child, Bodhi, to whom Reed gave birth in July 2017.

During the interview, Somerhalder casually mentioned throwing Reed's birth control pills away without her permission, as if it was a hilarious anecdote, as if it is acceptable to sabotage your own wife's contraceptive efforts, as if we live in a world where it's OK for men to decide the fates of the women in their lives.

Ooh, the Internet is enraged. And it should be.
