Celebrities send their love to the person formerly known as Bruce Jenner.

Though celebrities across the globe are sending their support for Caitlyn Jenner, the Olympian formerly known as Bruce Jenner, after she revealed her identity on the cover of Vanity Fair, one celebrity in particular has decided now’s the time to be a terrible human and put out transphobic messages.

Perhaps proving that his morals are as bankrupt as his bank account, former Nickelodeon star Drake Bell tweeted on Monday amid Jenner’s announcement:

After immediately receiving tons of backlash for being disrespectful, the actor quickly deleted his message. (But not before everyone took a screenshot like the one above, of course.)

Thinking that he can quell the situation, Bell then dug himself into a bigger hole by continually referring to Jenner as a “he” in his sad attempt of a defense, tweeting:

I’m not dissing him! I just don’t want to forget his legacy! He is the greatest athlete of all time! Chill out!

Though Jenner stated in her Vanity Fair interview that she doesn’t really get “hung up” if someone accidentally uses the wrong pronoun, it’s still pretty rude that Bell is refusing to call Jenner the name she’s chosen for herself, no?

Bell has since deleted all tweets regarding Jenner.
