Drake Bell has issued an apology after making transphobic remarks about Caitlyn Jenner.

Following the release of Jenner's Vanity Fair cover Monday, the former Nickelodeon star tweeted, "Sorry.... still calling you Bruce." As criticism of the comment began to mount, Bell attempted to clarify his remarks, all while continuing to use male pronouns.

"That's bravery! I'm not dissing him! I just don't want to forget his legacy! He is the greatest athlete of all time! Chill out!" he wrote.

On Thursday, Bell once again took to Twitter to ask for forgiveness for the now-deleted tweets.

Unfortunately, Bell is far from the first person to make offensive remarks regarding Jenner. He's not even the only celebrity: Snoop Dogg and Tom Cruise's son Connor have also come under fire for sharing transphobic opinions about the Olympian.
