Drake Bell Apologizes for 'Insensitive' Caitlyn Jenner Tweets
By Zach Seemayer
Drake Bell has always been rather outspoken on his Twitter account, occasionally picking fights with fans or slamming fellow celebs, but now the former Disney star is saying sorry for an insensitive tweet he posted about Caitlyn Jenner.
On Thursday, the 28-year-old actor took to Twitter to "sincerely apologize" for "thoughtless insensitive remarks" he made about Jenner after her Vanity Fair cover was released on Monday.
Bell's apology came days after his initial remarks sparked heavy criticism.
"Sorry...Still calling you Bruce," Bell tweeted and later deleted.
The comment quickly generated backlash from many of his followers, and Bell attempted to clarify his original comments, writing: "That's bravery! I'm not dissing him! I just don't want to forget his legacy! He is the greatest athlete of all time! Chill out!"
