This was definitely a great PR move, Drake.

While practically all of Hollywood has been supportive of Caitlyn Jenner's transition, one celeb has voiced a less tolerant opinion on the matter.

Drake Bell decided that he was going to rock the boat a little on Monday by tweeting that he was going to ignore the decent thing to do, and still refer to Caitlyn as a 'he'.

He tweeted (then deleted):

But that's not all — after deleting his initial message, which could have just been a simple misunderstanding — Drake continued to defend himself, saying:

So… you're trying to honor her legacy by going against her wishes.

Does this make sense to anyone?

We understand that this is probably more an issue of not fully grasping this aspect of the transgender community, but we hope Drake will learn from this situation rather than stand his ground.

Caitlyn is a woman and wants to be identified as such. Case closed.

Her name's Caitlyn, get used to it!

By now, you've definitely heard that Caitlyn Jenner has officially said goodbye to the name Bruce, but that also means that her pronouns have switched as well.

And while it is a big change to get used to, one Twitter bot is doing its best to make sure you understand the difference.

Bot @she_not_he has been programmed to correct you every time you misgender Caitlyn!

If you accidentally — or intentionally — refer to Caitlyn as 'he' instead of the accurate 'she', the bot will politely Tweet @ you to point out your mistake.

We're glad things like this exist to educate people on something that could be a foreign topic to them.

Or, you know, let people know who's bigoted out there in the Twitterverse!
