Lewis Hamilton has come in for criticism online over a video he shared on Instagram yesterday.

A representative for Hamilton did not immediately respond to HuffPost's request for comment.

The 32-year-old was overseas celebrating Christmas with his family when he posted the video. "Look at my nephew".

Even though the video is no longer available, it still managed to circulate around social media, sparking major backlash.

In a since-deleted Snapchat video, the Formula One driver called out the young boy for not following gender norms, reports the New York Post. "It takes for the people to try standing together".

And one user reminded Hamilton he's made enough of his own fashion faux pas that maybe he shouldn't judge anyone else's choices.

Hamilton, who previously dated Nicole Scherzinger and has been romantically linked to Kendall Jenner, Rihanna and Heidi Klum, has sparked controversy on social media before.
