NextImg:Drake Bell: Trolls are going to ‘kill’ me due to nonstop pedophilia accusations

More On:

Drake Bell’s internet trolls are taking a severe toll on his mental health.

When a Twitter follower tweeted, “Let’s not forget he’s a pedo” Wednesday, the “Drake & Josh” alum responded, “Do a second of research This is what I have to live with everyday they are literally going to kill me. Bloods on their hands…”

The critic’s remark stems from a child endangerment charge that Bell pleaded guilty to in 2021.

Prosecutors found the Nickelodeon alum once sent “inappropriate social media messages” to a 15-year-old girl he had met online.

Bell pleaded guilty to a felony child endangerment charge and a misdemeanor charge of disseminating matter harmful to juveniles.

Bell, who was sentenced to two years of probation and 200 hours of community service for the crime, later said his actions were “reckless and irresponsible” but claimed there were “no sexual images” sent or “nothing physical” done between him and the minor. 

However, people on social media have not let the former child star forget his past.

Bell, 36, added in a separate tweet Thursday, “It truly blows my mind how mean people are on here to people clearly dealing with mental health issues.”

He then concluded, “It’s unreal how cruel you all can be.”

Bell has been clearly struggling recently. He was reported missing and “endangered” on April 13 after he allegedly threatened suicide leading up to his disappearance.

In a 911 call previously obtained by Page Six, an officer was heard telling a dispatcher that a “celebrity who had a falling out with his wife” had been texting his family in California saying he was going to “get drunk and hang himself.”

However, Bell has not confirmed those claims. Instead, when he was found safe and “unharmed,” he made it seem as if his disappearance had been blown out of proportion.

Police said on a 911 call that Bell disappeared after he had a “falling out with his wife.”

“You leave your phone in the car and don’t answer for the night and this? ????,” the “Amanda Show” alum tweeted just a few hours after police found him alive and well.

Bell has been dealing with personal issues, though, as the 911 call suggested.

Page Six exclusively reported in January that the actor and his now-estranged wife, Janet Von Schmeling, had separated.

Bell married Janet Von Schmeling in 2018 and they share a son.

Sources also told us at the time that Bell had entered treatment after he was found huffing balloons in his car on two occasions last December.

We were also told that the musician’s young son was in the back seat of the vehicle when the incident occurred and so his ex had “had enough.”

Von Schmeling officially filed for divorce on Thursday and Bell tweeted that he found out about the dissolution of his four-year marriage online.
