Caitlyn Jenner's debut on the cover of Vanity Fair has undoubtedly been the most viral news on the web lately. But along with fame and support, the 'Call Me Caitlyn' cover also received negative reactions from many celebs in the industry.
From Drake Bell to Snoop Dogg, and Timbaland to Tom Cruise's son Connor Cruise, are the celebrities who triggered controversies with their negative reactions. They have all been blasted by their fans for their insensitive reactions to Caitlyn Jenner's Vanity Fair cover.
It all started with Drake Bell, who after seeing the 'Call Me Caitlyn' cover tweeted: "Sorry... still calling you Bruce."
The former star of Nickelodeon's 'Drake & Josh', who deleted the offending post minutes later, was slammed by fans on social media.
Bell tweeted again saying: "I'm not dissing him! I just don't want to forget his legacy! He is the greatest athlete of all time! Chill out!"
But his attempts were futile and now, Drake has again officially apologised on Twitter.
"I sincerely apologize for my thoughtless insensitive remarks. I in no way meant to hurt or demean those going through a similar journey," the actor shared.

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

Similarly, Tom Cruise's son Connor tweeted a rant against the star receiving the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the ESPY Awards. "Really?? Winning the AA award for courage?? Ashton is gonna come out and yell PUNK'D," Connor tweeted on Wednesday.
"Don't get me wrong. Do what you feel like doing and don't let anyone stop you. But everyone is taking this way too seriously," he added.
And when the DJ received shade for his comments, he quickly deleted it.
And now, even he has apologised by saying: "Totally twisting what I said, if you read what I said I totally support being happy and am glad she is happy."

We just need to as a nation and a world get back to business and making everything a better place.— Connor Cruise (@TheConnorCruise) June 4, 2015
He clarified a few minutes later: "Way more about the problems the world needs to solve than about her guys."

But artistes Snoop Dogg and Timbaland went ahead and posted memes to express their thoughts. In fact, Snoop called Caitlyn a "science project".
The hip hop artist posted a meme of Akon in which he not only appreciates rapper's charitable work in Africa, but also called Jenner a "science project".
"Shout out to Akon! He is about to supply 600 million africans with solar power. Im really upset that this isn't major news but that science project bruce jenner is #Society," Snoop posted on Instagram.
While his comment did spark an outrage on social media with some calling it sad and disappointing, there were many others who agreed to his opinion.
Much as Snoop's post, music producer Timbaland also posted a meme on Facebook that is taken from a famous line from Eddie Murphy's "Coming to America".
"His momma named him Bruce. Imma name him Bruce," the post read.
Timbaland has clarified that he didn't create the meme, he just finds it funny and has nothing against Jenner.
"This was a repost I thought was funny I'm not making fun of him I support him but stop it we can all laugh sometime dammmmm it's just a dam repost someone sent to me !!!!!" he wrote in the comments section.
Well, it looks like Caitlyn Jenner is already becoming the web queen.
