Don't expect to see Ian Somerhalder lining up at midnight to score some of this season's best shopping deals.

The 32-year-old Vampire Diaries star wished his Twitter followers a "happy Thanksgiving" late Wednesday night, though he also vented his frustration with what's become of the holiday.

"What I'm not grateful for is the midnight black Friday crap," he wrote. "Thousands of families are missing out on family time."

The actor -- currently dating his costar Nina Dobrev -- added that "stores should be ashamed."

"Family is all we have, the foundation of our country and our world," he explained. "Just my two cents. It may not matter, but I said it."
