Former Nickelodeon star Drake Bell wrote this since-deleted comment:
“Sorry… still calling you Bruce.”
Online supporters were unhappy with the “Drake & Josh” star’s comment and flooded his Twitter feed, calling out the actor for using an important moment to gain a little fame.
One wrote, “Why does Drake Bell need to use a huge moment in the trans community and history to try [to] get attention for his failing career.”
Another commenter posted, “Drake Bell is trending bc he’s ignorant.”
This isn’t the first time the 28-year-old actor has slammed a big star. Last year, Drake dissed Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande during a BuzzFeed interview, calling out the young stars for “not working very hard” and being “billionaires before they are artists.”
