Formula One driver apologizes for suggesting boys don’t wear dainty dresses


Lewis Hamilton is a Formula One driver who recently found himself in the middle of the gender identity controversy. It started with a tweet in which Hamilton teased his nephew, who was dressed in a flowy princess outfit. After Hamilton suggested to the boy that “boys don’t wear princess dresses,” liberal Twitter users lost their minds.

Hamilton was making an obvious attempt to joke with the young boy, who was carrying a wand as well as wearing the dress. In the video, Hamilton asks the boy if he had asked for the traditionally female attire for Christmas, and said he was “so sad right now” because the child was wearing the outfit.
After the backlash he received on social media, the pro racer removed the video from the platform and issued an apology for any possible offense. The three tweets he published to do so are combined here:

“Yesterday I was playing around with my nephew and realized 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 behavior as I realize it is not really acceptable for anyone, no matter where you are from, to marginalize 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.”

According to the Daily Wire, “[t]he outrage in this instance should not be directed at Hamilton, but to those on the Left working to dismantle the traditional understanding of gender (the expression of the male and female sex), particularly within impressionable youths.”

Hamilton’s tweets and the original video may be viewed below.
