It took just four hours for Caitlyn Jenner’s Twitter account to reach one million followers on Monday, with countless messages of support being posted on her feed from fans and friends, however, one celebrity’s tweet about Caitlyn received some serious backlash.
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.”
