While we were all busy celebrating Caitlyn Jenner's beautiful moment when she introduced herself to the world on her Vanity Fair cover with the headline "Call Me Caitlyn," Drake Bell was on Twitter pissing a lot of people off.

After the cover was revealed, the former Nickelodeon star took to Twitter to share this disrespectful sentiment in a now-deleted tweet.

Obviously, people were not happy and after the Twitterverse set him straight, he deleted the tweet and wrote, "I'm not dissing him! I just don't want to forget his legacy! He is the greatest athlete of all time! Chill out!" The tweet, which still misgendered Caitlyn, has also been deleted.

The good news is that the actor has realized that he was wrong and has taken to Twitter to apologize. And he DIDN'T delete these tweets. What he said originally was obviously unfortunate, but he obviously gave it a lot of thought and is truly sorry for it. We give him credit for owning his mistakes and issuing such a public apology. Hopefully this means he'll honor her wishes and call her Caitlyn, otherwise we'll get mad all over again.

It would have been extra cool if he'd tagged Caitlyn in the tweets (because she's on Twitter and already kicking butt with over 2.4 million followers), but the apology is a good start.
