In this day and age, the man should not be surprised that his words were met with a lot of criticism. Lewis Hamilton, Kendall Jenner’s alleged former boyfriend, took to social media to share a vid in which he was reprimanding his nephew for wearing a princess dress! Naturally, the controversial opinion caused many people to slam him for being so ignorant.
The 32-year-old Formula One driver got a lot of hate for the said vid which since then has been deleted.
The footage showed his really young nephew proudly wearing a princess dress on Christmas and him explaining to the excited child that the dress was not meant for little boys.
‘I am so sad right now…look at my nephew,’ Kendall’s rumored ex said to the camera before flipping to the cute child dresses in a purple and pink princess dress.
‘Why are you wearing a princess dress? Is that what you got for Christmas? Why did you ask for a princess dress for Christmas? Boys do not wear princess dresses,’ Hamilton said to his nephew.
Despite his uncle’s opinion, the little boy continued to bask in the happiness of receiving exactly what he wanted Santa to bring him.
Soon after the video was posted, social media users started bashing Hamilton for his ‘disgusting’ behavior.
‘This kid looks genuinely happy! Just let him enjoy his life without having social norms imposed on him,’ one commented.
Some pointed out that he is known for having a more unusual fashion style as well while others were so angry that they asked fashion houses that usually sponsor him to retract their contracts.
Even though Hamilton deleted the video, another Twitter user managed to capture it and repost it.

Back in 2015, Hamilton was romantically linked to Kendal Jenner.
After many rumors, however, the man decided to address them and claimed that they were just friends.
