Earlier this week, when conversation about Vanity Fair’s cover photo of Caitlyn Jenner utterly dominated Twitter, former Nickelodeon star Drake Bell managed to trend right behind Jenner most of the day, because of this (since deleted) tweet:
Bell tried to explain that he just wanted to remember the legacy of the greatest athlete of all time, but legions of social justice warriors had already branded Bell “transphobic,” with a handful instructing him to “hang yourself,” “die,” and “burn in hell.”
Calls for followers to “chill out” didn’t help, and today Bell issued an apology for his remarks.
Remarkably, Bell’s apology went over well with most.
Don’t be drama llamas.
