Drake Bell has apologized to anyone offended by the tweet he sent out on Monday when it was revealed that Bruce Jenner now wants to be known as Caitlyn Jenner, a woman.
When the internet was abuzz with the news, Bell tweeted, ‘Sorry … still calling you Bruce,’ leading to a barrage of backlash from pro-LGBT Twitter users who felt he insulted their new-found face of LGBT rights … causing his name to trend worldwide.
When the slamming was at its peak, the singer responded by tweeting, ‘Calm down children … I’m not dissing him! I just don’t want to forget his legacy! He is the greatest athlete of all time! Chill out!’ Apparently that didn’t calm his slammers down, so on Thursday he offered an apology.
‘I sincerely apologize for my thoughtless insensitive remarks. I in no way meant to hurt or demean those going through a similar journey,’ he tweeted. ‘Although my comments were made in innocence, I deeply regret the negative effect they’ve had on so many.’
Hope his slammers are satisfied now.
