A world racing champion removes info from his social media accounts after controversial comments


After some recent comments on social media got one Formula 1 driver in hot water, it appears he decided to wipe the slate clean.

Lewis Hamilton posted a video to Instagram of him teasing his young nephew, who was playing in a dress during Christmas. After asking the young boy why he had the dress on, Hamilton yelled at him, "Boys don't wear princess dresses."

Hamilton later took to both his Twitter and Instagram accounts to apologize for the remarks and he received a number of critical comments on social media.


But as quick as an apology was issued, it was then taken away after Hamilton wiped his Instagram clean of any posts whatsoever, according to the Express. He also deleted both the original video and the apology from his Twitter.

Prior to the series of deletes, Hamilton also posted a few comments in regards to his actions.

"Yesterday I was playing around with my nephew and realized that my words were inappropriate so I removed the post," Hamilton wrote via social media. "I meant no harm and did not mean to offend anyone at all."

As of now the most recent post on Hamilton's Twitter is from Oct. 29, and as far as his Instagram goes --- it doesn't!
