Why did you ask for a princess dress for Christmas? Boys don't wear princess dresses." People on Twitter were quick to criticise the post and explained the damaging subtext of Hamilton's remarks. I hope @LewisHamilton properly thinks and apologises to his nephew for that video. Thinks about why it is so horrible, and considers donating to a charity which supports LGBT youth. That video is a video so many of us have experienced. Gross. It sticks with you — Travis (@travisalabanza) December 26, 2017 So impressed by whoever bought that lovely little kid such an awesome princess dress.

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 But some people aren't convinced by the sincerity of his words based on the tweets that Hamilton has liked.
