Digital hell broke loose shortly after as the visual sparked a discussion on gender roles and the mental stability of boys and men who wear women’s clothing.
Boys, who (hopefully) grow up to become men DONT wear princess dresses, a PRINCESS is a girl. You ARE right. And it’s nobody else’s business advising YOUR nephew. ????????

Lewis, who has been linked romantically with Nicole Scherzinger, Rita Ora and Winnie Harlow, was then beaten with remarks from cruel critics who questioned his sexuality.
.@LewisHamilton is gonna get dragged out the closet. #gaytwitter knows u gay but you’re trying to be masc as boys don’t wear dresses – this is like all those boys who call you fag in school to cover the fact they’re gay themselves-when you come out we aren’t here for you pic.twitter.com/CMyUaUjbPt

Why don’t you just come out? Everyone knows you are gay. Then you will be at peace.

i’m gonna go with #LewisHamilton is gay. There was no reason to mock that sweet little boy, even more bizarre to post it. Something going on with him beyond the unkindness to his little nephew.

Lewis Hamilton is pissed because the dress looks better on the kid Than on his gay ass.

@LewisHamilton is a closeted gay man that thinks shaming a child for being their authentic self is okay. Just because you’re hiding, doesn’t mean everyone else has to as well. A CHILD. I woulda cussed the shit outta him had I seen that. I hope someone did.

Lewis, as all of his girlfriends can attest to, is in fact a straight man.
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.
