Drake and Josh always had differences. That’s what made the show so great.
But recently, in adulthood, Drake Bell and Josh Peck had a misunderstanding that couldn’t be solved without resorting to some pretty petty social media playground tactics.
In now deleted tweets, Bell shared some harsh words after realising he hadn’t been invited to Peck’s wedding – when even John Stamos got the nod, FYI.
In case you missed it, Bell wrote:
When you’re not invited to the wedding the message is clear… True colors have come out today. Message is loud and clear. Ties officially cut. I’ll miss you brotha…
Loyalty is key. ALWAYS remember where you came from [sic].
But, just like a great 90s sitcom, it seems a resolution is on the horizon after a little bit of light-hearted soul searching from the offending party.
Bell told People: “I was caught off-guard. He’s been my best friend for 18 years. In all honesty, we talk all the time, we’ve been talking.”
Responding to the social media backlash directed towards Pack, Bell added:
I didn’t think it would be that big of a deal. I did not realize that it was going to have such a viral affect … That’s my bro, you know? It’s kind of one of those things were you’re fighting with him on the playground, but if someone else says something, you’re like, ‘Hey, I can say that but you can’t!’
Bell even went as far as saying he wouldn’t be opposed to a Drake & Josh reunion, ‘if it was done right’.
It sounds like they’re one nostalgic narrative arc away from the brothas coming back!
