Lewis Hamilton has apologised for mocking his young nephew’s princess dress on a video posted to Instagram.

The Formula One driver caused outrage when he posted a video clip to his story on Christmas Day, showing him shaming his nephew for wearing a dress.

In the now deleted footage, Hamilton could be seen criticising his young relative who’s clearly happy, playing with his toy magic wand while wearing a pink and purple dress.

In the video he says:

I’m so sad right now. Look at my nephew.

Why are you wearing a princess dress? Is this what you got for Christmas?

Why did you ask for a princess dress for Christmas? Boys don’t wear princess dresses!

Unlike Hamilton, the youngster is clearly over the moon with his present giggling with happiness as his uncle mocks him.

Receiving a social media backlash, Hamilton has apologised for his comments which he now realises are ‘inappropriate’.

He wrote on Twitter:

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 judgement.

The video was initially met with uproar on social media as people criticised Hamilton for both shaming his young nephew in public and reinforcing gender stereotypes.

Although Hamilton has said he regrets his comments, people are now questioning how sincere his apology is considering he liked various tweets from his fans that supported the video.

I am just wondering when he will apologise for his massive tax avoidance?
