Lewis Hamilton, the reigning Formula One World Champion, has yelled at a small child, mocking him for wearing a princess dress.

Hamilton, 32, took issue with his nephew’s Christmas present – to such an extent that he shouted at him on camera.

And then he uploaded the video to his 5.7 million Instagram followers.

Because when you loudly mock a child for dressing up in a costume which just so happens to go against gender norms, you want the whole world to see – apparently.

Hamilton, who has won the Formula One World Championship title four times and been crowned BBC Sports Personality of the Year, starts the video by saying: “I’m so sad right now.”

With a “🙈” emoji constantly at the bottom of the screen, he pans to a small child wearing a beautiful blue-and-pink dress and waving a pink, fluffy wand.

He looks like he’s having a great time, but this is seemingly unacceptable to his uncle.

“Look at my nephew,” says the 32-year-old multi-millionaire.

“Why are you wearing a princess dress?” he asks the child, berating him for wearing something he clearly likes.

“Is this what you got for Christmas?”

The boy nods, grinning.

“Why did you ask for a princess dress for Christmas?”

And then, full-on yelling at an infant, he tells him: “Boys don’t wear princess dresses!”

The child turns away, covering his ears.

Of course, children should be allowed to wear whatever they like.

Hollywood star and all-round badass Charlize Theron had no problem with her son wearing a dress.

British singing sensation Adele was just fine with the concept.

And the Archbishop of Canterbury said earlier this year that boys wearing dresses was “not a problem”.

In September, Nigel and Sally Rowe said that unless a student at their child’s Church of England school on the Isle of Wight was stopped from wearing dresses, they would file a lawsuit.

The parents also pulled their children, aged six and eight, out of the school because authorities did not meet their demands.

But Archbishop Justin Welby urged them to leave other families and children to their own devices, explaining: “I would say to them, I don’t think that’s a problem.

“The other family are making up their own minds. The other child is making up their own mind.”

Apparently Hamilton doesn’t agree.
