London, Dec 28: Reigning Formula One Champion Lewis Hamilton took to social media to apologise for his inappropriate comments on his nephew.
The Mercedes-Amg driver earlier taunted his nephew saying: “Boys don’t wear princess dresses” on Instagram. However, the comment was deleted later.
The post showed his nephew wearing a purple and pink outfit and carrying a pink wand with a heart on it on Christmas eve.
The 32-year-old on Tuesday apologised through a tweet saying: “Yesterday I was playing around with my nephew and realised that my words were inappropriate so I removed the post. I meant no harm and did not mean to offend anyone at all. I love that my nephew feels free to express himself as we all should.
“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.
“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 judgment,” Hamilton added.
