Drake Bell, a former teen heartthrob and star of Nickelodeon’sĀ Drake and Josh, stirred up controversy June 1 when he tweeted his opinion about Caitlyn Jenner to his over 3 million followers.

The tweet read, “Sorry….still calling you Bruce.”

Shortly after the tweet was posted, Bell deleted and replaced it with, “That’s bravery!”

Bell later said he removed the first tweet because he was trying to show respect.

“I’m not dissing him! I just don’t want to forget his legacy!” Bell posted on Twitter. “He is the greatest athlete of all time! Chill out!”

Bell continued using male pronouns for Jenner throughout his tweets.

Jenner did not comment on Bell’s tweets but did comment on becoming the fastest Twitter account to reach one million followers in the shortest amount of time.

“Another Jenner world record, and at 65? Who’da thought! Humbled & honored to have reached 1M followers in 4 hrs. Thank you for your support,” Jenner tweeted.
