Drake Bell Tweets That He'll Still Call Caitlyn Jenner "Bruce"

Drake Bell Tweets That He’ll Still Call Caitlyn Jenner “Bruce”

As actors and musicians continue to react to the debut of Caitlyn Jenner, some have been more accepting of the transition than others.


For some reason, Drake Bell decided to share his less-than-enthused take on the day’s big news, tweeting “Sorry….still calling you Bruce.”

He deleted the tweet shortly thereafter.

Bell’s reps have not yet responded to requests for comment.

Here is a screengrab of Bell’s post, courtesy of Twitter user Adam Ellis.

Bell also tweeted, “That’s bravery” and “Good thing social media has no effect on real life.” Then, when he continued to be criticized he said, “I’m not dissing him! I just don’t want to forget his legacy! He is the greatest athlete of all time! Chill out!”
