Look, I know we’re all busy trolling Cole Sprouse for smoking a cigarette while doing the “Call Her Daddy” podcast, but that’s not the only revelation that appearance gave us. There’s also the fact that Cole claims that Dylan Sprouse (arguably the better twin) was a “really big bully” to kids at school when they were younger. Sacre bleu!
Kids are brats at the best of times, of course. However, the fact that Cole and Dylan skyrocketed to fame in the likes of “Friends,” “Big Daddy,” and “The Suite Life of Zack and Cody” when they were barely out of diapers must have made them downright insufferable. According to Cole, it was Dylan that was the problem child.
Dylan has previously said in interviews that he and his brother were largely homeschooled as kids. However, they did occasionally go to public school for short periods of time. Cole says when they did, Dylan was basically the worst.
Dylan Sprouse was a “huge bully” and always got into fights

During the “Call Her Daddy” interview, Cole said most of the kids “didn’t really care too much” that the twins were famous. The bigger problem was that Dylan was a “huge bully” — though he didn’t exactly paint himself in an angelic light.
“Our navigation through elementary school and middle school, we were like f**king d**ks,” Cole recalled. “He would beat them up, and then I became known as the twin that would come up and be like ‘I’m so sorry for my brother.’ Everyone knows that he was a bully.”
While this may seem like slander, Dylan Sprouse actually admitted that he was a bully in an old interview with the New York Daily News.
“I was not a good kid. And I was always in trouble. And I was dealing with a lot of stuff at home that I was bringing to school and taking out on other people,” Dylan said. “And it wasn’t until I was kind of … in a nurturing environment where I became a much better person, for lack of a better way to describe it … In high school, I was a very, very different person than I am now.”
