Pop icon Boy George has defended sports star Lewis Hamilton for yelling at his nephew for wearing a princess dress on Christmas Day.
Formula One champ Lewis shouted ‘Little boys don’t wear dresses!’ at the infant on Monday.
He filmed the incident and shared it on his Instagram stories, prompting a huge backlash. He has since apologized.
‘People make mistakes’
Taking to Twitter, Boy George, the frontman of Culture Club, said: ‘Let’s all give @LewisHamilton a break now’.
The Karma Chameleon singer furthermore added: ‘Far worse is said everyday by far worse people with far less style! Move. People make mistakes and that’s how they learn!’
Culture Club were one of the biggest bands of the 1980s, selling over 50 million records worldwide.
They are known for hits such as Do You Really Want To Hurt Me and also Time (Clock of the Heart).
Of course, the Boy has never one to mince his words. The coach on The Voice wondered aloud Twitter earlier this year whether the late George Michael would ‘have been happy’ with the release of his posthumous single, Fantasy.
He furthermore added ‘I have my own thoughts about it’ at the time. Freedom singer George died of natural causes on Christmas Day 2016.
