Turns out, Drake Bell isn’t just an A-Hole to Justin Bieber.

The young actor, who has famously taunted Bieber over the years and even tried to deport the singer, is now under fire for an idiotic Tweet he directed at Caitlyn Jenner.

Shortly after Jenner debuted as a woman on the cover of Vanity Fair, specifically telling folks to now "call me Caitlyn," Bell wrote the following:

"Sorry… Still calling you Bruce."

Bell immediately received major backlash for such a remark, deleting the original message and lamely trying to explain it via a series of subsequent Tweets.

"I’m not dissing him! I just don’t want to forget his legacy!" the Nickelodeon alum hilariously claimed, adding of the former Gold Medalist:

"He is the greatest athlete of all time! Chill out!"

Bell concluded by writing "Calm down children," apparently believing that a condescending tone was the proper one to take here.

Elsewhere, Timbaland made a similar error in judgment.

The music producer/rapper is taking heat for a picture he posted on Facebook about Caitlyn Jenner, along with the caption that reads:

“His momma named him Bruce. Imma call him Bruce."

Well, sure. Yes. This is technically true.

Except Bruce’s mother is 100% on board with her son’s transition, telling Access Hollywood that Caitlyn looks "beautiful" inside the pages of Vanity Fair.

Any time you want to apologize, Timbaland, we’re waiting…
