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.
