Here’s 25 reasons.
1. He compelled, seduced and abused Caroline against her will.
2. He terrorized Bonnie and Elena with the crow and the fog.
3. He killed his and Stefan’s last living relative.
4. He killed Stefan’s closest friend on his birthday.
5. He tried to compel Elena into kissing him.
6. He tried to kill Caroline after she was turned.
7. He tortured Vicki numerous times.
8. He snapped Jeremy’s neck because Elena refused to kiss him.
9. He promised Stefan an ‘eternity of misery’
10. He spent 4 seasons attempting to break up Stefan and Elena.
11. He forced elena to drink vampire blood even though she didn’t want
to become a vampire and then attacked Stefan when he tried to intervene.
12. He attacked and staked his brother when he found out Stefan only stopped him from killing Klaus to save his life. Let’s not forget that alley scene where he and Rebekah basically forced him to drink human blood despite him not wanting to.
13. He told Elena she was ‘going to be miserable’ as a vampire, then tricked her into feeding from him (knowing it would upset Stefan)
14. He didn’t tell her she was sired to him until the last possible minute.
15. He forced her to turn off her humanity instead of dealing with her problems.
16. He killed Alaric like five times. Not to mention ”I got the girl”
17. He took his hatred out on Stefan because he wanted Katherine to turn him and only him. “It was supposed to be me, Stefan. Just me.”
18. He resented Stefan for trying to help Elena turn her humanity back on, because he was jealous and paranoid.
19. He didn’t give a fuck about his brother drowning in a safe for three months because he was too busy playing house with elena to notice he’d gone missing.
20. He referred to Stefan as Elena’s “ex boyfriend” and told her he didn’t need a “play by play” despite her sensing something wrong with him.
21. He was working with Silas behind every ones back and snapped Stefan’s neck over and over again (because he obviously hadn’t just been through enough pain)
22. He killed Katherine after she literally begged for her life, gagged & tied Amara up in the boot of his car, then locked her in a cell.
23. Elena had to go and beg him to check on Stefan when she sensed something wrong with him in 5x07
24. He terrorized Jeremy, Caroline, Matt, Bonnie and every one else living in Mystic Falls so many times I’ve lost count.
25. He couldn’t let Stefan and Elena be happy together and had to spend four seasons trying to get her for himself, because his happiness was more important than anyone elses, including his brother and the girl he supposedly loves.
Bonus reason - Stefan to Damon & Elena:
“I wanted it to be you. When that safe finally opened and somebody found me.. I wanted it to be both of you.” (IT WASN’T)
I agree with all, except #16.
Alaric and Damon’s friendship with Alaric was his only redeeming factor. My heart broke for Damon when Alaric died. Dalaric 4-eva!
More reasons to hate Damon
#26. Damon tortured and killed the sexy uncle Mason Lockwood.
#27. If I remember right, also Caroline’s dad. Or was it, Klaus?
#28. He slept with Alaric’s wife, then turned her… then killed her, I think. But I won’t complain much about that coz she was a bitch…
