Nearly everyone who’s sported Mickey Mouse ears was devastated upon learning about the rift between Drake Bell and Josh Peck. While Peck exchanged vows with his fiancé, Bell found himself absent from the guest list, prompting him to take to Twitter to express his feelings about his perceived snub.

«When you’re not invited to the wedding, the message is clear,» Bell lamented in a series of now-deleted tweets. «True colors have come out today. Message is loud and clear. Ties are officially cut. I’ll miss you brotha,» he continued. «Loyalty is key.» «ALWAYS remember where you came from.» Later, Bell admitted to Entertainment Tonight that he regretted his Twitter outburst and acknowledged that he should have directly addressed the issue with Josh.

Despite the public scrutiny surrounding their rifts, some cling to hope for reconciliation, while others have come to terms with the fact that their friendships belong solely to the annals of the past.
