Celebs Rush to Call her Caitlyn

Caitlyn broke the internet Monday, and even Obama's all for it. After this Vanity Fair image was released, Caitlyn Jenner garnered support from the POTUS himself.

However his support came from his @BarackObama twitter instead of his two-week old @POTUS account. Perhaps he's just impressed that Jenner broke his Twitter Guinness World Record, her account gaining one million followers in just four hours and three minutes while it took her competitor just under five. The president said:

Obama isn't the only one to give Caitlyn Jenner high approval ratings. Miley Cyrus, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Lena Dunham, Anna Kendrick, and Frank Ocean are amongst the many celebrities who have sent their praises. In addition, Orange is the New Black star, Laverne Cox, took to tumblr to share her thoughts. Although they were overwhelmingly positive, she did say that, “Yes, Caitlyn looks amazing and is beautiful but what I think is most beautiful about her is her heart and soul, the ways she has allowed the world into her vulnerabilities.” Cox, also a transgender woman, wants to be sure the world knows that her and Caitlyn's story aren't every trans person's story—that they've had unbelievable access to resources to achieve such beauty standards, and that most people do not get the same opportunity.

This unbelievable opportunity and transition is one that even Caitlyn's own stepson didn't recognize. Unaware of the Vanity Fair photo shoot, Rob Kardashian apparently said in response to receiving the image in a text message, “Kim, why are you sending me this? Who is this woman? And why do I care?' to which Kim responded “Rob! That's Bruce! That's Caitlyn.' To which the 28 year-old replied, 'Oh my God, she's beautiful!' Rob reportedly called Jenner to offer his support after the exchange. Untypical of a Kardashian, he has yet to make any public comments although the rest of the family has shared their support on social media.

Despite all of the positive energy, there is one celebrity that refuses to Call her Caitlyn—Drake Bell. On Monday, the Drake and Josh star and Nickelodeon alumnus tweeted:

This caused massive outrage, and the comment has been since deleted. Maybe he would have complied if she had spelled it with a 'K'.
