Hands up if you know exactly how this kid feels right now?
Lewis Hamilton has publicly berated his infant nephew for wearing a princess dress on Christmas Day.
The British Formula One icon shared the moment he shouts ‘Boys don’t wearing princess dresses!’ to his 5.7 million Instagram followers.
‘I’m so sad right now’
In the clip, the racing champion says to the camera: ‘I’m so sad right now. Look at my nephew.’
He furthermore adds: ‘Why are you wearing a princess dress? Why did you ask for a princess dress for Christmas? Boys don’t wear princess dresses.’
Oh dear Lewis. You’ve just opened a can of worms… pic.twitter.com/fpsiNeOZrd

Other members of Hamilton’s family, including other nieces and nephews, can be seen in the background.
The video, posted to the star’s Instagram stories, is no longer visible. However, some eagle-eyed social media users have since circulated it themselves.
Twitter users were quick to condemn Hamilton’s words.
Lewis Hamilton is such a prick for posting that video. His nephew was so happy wearing his princess gown but instead that wasteman publicly shamed a flipping child. What a bastard

The fact that’s not even Lewis Hamilton’s own child is spinning me. If you put my child on your insta story to humiliate them it would be lights out

Others pointed out the irony that the star has always had his own ideas about personal style…
