Lewis Hamilton has been accused of humiliating his young nephew online after he disapproved of his choice of Christmas attire, telling him: “Boys don’t wear princess dresses.”
The Formula One world champion posted a video on Instagram in which he makes fun of the child, who is wearing a purple and pink outfit and carrying a pink wand with a heart on it.
“I’m so sad right now. Look at my nephew,” says Hamilton to his Instagram followers, as the camera focuses on the boy.
“Why are you wearing a princess dress? Is this what you got for Christmas?” he asks, as the boy nods delightedly.
“Why did you ask for a princess dress for Christmas?” he goes on.
“Because it’s pretty,” the boy replies enthusiastically, waving the pink wand.
