Drake Bell Apologizes for "Thoughtless" Caitlyn Jenner Remark

by at .  Updated at .

We may not want to hold our breaths for Drake Bell to ever apologize to Justin Bieber for saying some really mean stuff about the artist over the years.

But the young actor has come right out with a mea culpa regarding his recent dumb Tweet directed at Caitlyn Jenner.

A day after Bruce Jenner went public with his new identity, Bell derided the reality star's request to be known as Caitlyn, writing on Twitter:

"Sorry... Still calling you Bruce."

SHE is Cait!

Bell then tried to somehow pretend his comment was a compliment, following up this sentence by Tweeting how Jenner was the "greatest athlete of all-time" and he didn't want to "forget his legacy."

But now Bell has stopped trying to pretend and has started trying to make amends.

“I sincerely apologize for my thoughtless insensitive remarks. I in no way meant to hurt or demean those going through a similar journey,” Tweeted Bell, adding in a separate post:

“Although my comments were made in innocence, I deeply regret the negative effect they’ve had on so many."

Sadly, Bell isn't the only celebrity to have slammed Caitlyn Jenner for her gender transformation.

Timbaland also wrote on Facebook that he won't call Caitlyn by her new name, while Geraldo Rivera compared Caitlyn to Kris Humphries and Snoop Dogg labeled her a "science project."

What is wrong with people?!?
