Fans have criticised Formula One on social media for “censoring” Lewis Hamilton’s tribute to Breonna Taylor – an African-American who was shot dead by officers of the Louisville Metro Police Department earlier this year.
After winning the Tuscan Grand Prix, Hamilton put on a t-shirt emblazoned with “Arrest the cops who killed Breonna Taylor.”
As always, after the race Formula One’s official Twitter account posted excerpts from the interviews of the drivers who finished on the podium.
But, they opted to use a picture of Hamilton wearing his racing overalls instead of his picture on the podium, as he was wearing the aforementioned t-shirt.
This got fans’ attention and caused quite a stir on Twitter.
On the other hand, some fans hit out at Hamilton and urged him to stop using F1 as a platform for “political matters.”
