Unfortunately, not everyone has been respectful of her wishes. Shortly after Caitlyn's cover was released, Drake Bell took to Twitter to make the announcement that he apparently didn't care what she wanted. "Sorry...still calling you Bruce," he tweeted, and later deleted.
When fans expressed their outrage, he followed up with another now-deleted tweet misgendering the former Olympian. "I'm not dissing him!" he wrote, using the male pronoun that Caitlyn no longer uses. "I just don't want to forget his legacy! He is the greatest athlete of all time! Chill out!"
Fortunately, there is now a Twitter bot that will correct people who use the wrong pronouns. Appropriately-named @She_not_he automatically responds to people who use male pronouns when referring to the 65-year-old.

The bot, which was created by Twitter users @caitlindewey and @andrewmcgill has already sent out over 2,700 tweets in the last two days.
