Lewis Hamilton criticized for posting skiing pictures
Formula 1 champion, Lewis Hamilton has been criticized for posting skiing pictures online of his skiing holiday, even while fellow racer Michael Schumacher lies fighting for his life in a medically induced coma in Grenoble hospital.
Hamilton, 28, has posted snaps on his Instagram page showing him skiing without a helmet. These photos taken on Christmas day, show of Hamilton all smiles as he crosses the slopes with one of his pet dogs in his rucksack. Another photo of Hamilton shows him wearing a helmet while he skis with his younger brother Nick, 21, who suffers from cerebral palsy.
Some comments included, ‘Shame on you’ and ‘very insensitive given a certain ex race driver’s current condition in hospital’, ‘He really should think a little and take these down before it harms his good name.’ But, most of the fans did not think that this was done in a bad taste. ‘He has only posted one photo of him skiing and in that he had a helmet on. The other photos are of him hiking or cross-country skiing or walking. Is everyone to stop posting photos of snowy vistas or skis full stop? Grow up please.’
Mine & my families prayers & thoughts are with Michael & his family. I wish him a quick recovery. God Bless him. The Hamiltons
