Hamilton wipes all Instagram posts after video controversy

Published

on

Lewis Hamilton’s astonishing year is coming to an unhappy end, as the Formula 1 World Champion is in hot water over a video he shared of his nephew.

Recently Hamilton deleting every post from his Instagram account in what is being perceived as a response to recent outrage over a Snapchat video in which he criticised his nephew for wearing a dress. Also he has now deleted all of his tweets going back to October.

“I’m so sad right now. Look at my nephew,” Hamilton, 32, said. “Why are you wearing a princess dress? Is this what you got for Christmas? Why did you ask for a princess dress for Christmas? Boys don’t wear princess dresses!”

“Yesterday I was playing around with my nephew and realised that my words were inappropriate so I removed the post. I meant no harm and did not mean to offend anyone at all. I love that my nephew feels free to express himself as we all should.” — Lewis Hamilton (@LewisHamilton) December 26, 2017

“My deepest apologies for my behaviour as I realise it is really not acceptable for anyone, no matter where you are from, to marginalise or stereotype anyone.” — Lewis Hamilton (@LewisHamilton) December 26, 2017

“I have always been in support of anyone living their life exactly how they wish and I hope I can be forgiven for this lapse in judgement.” — Lewis Hamilton (@LewisHamilton) December 26, 2017

Despite the apology, many continued to target the Mercedes man — and now it appears his 5.7 million Instagram followers are going to suffer.
