Lewis Hamilton slams Uganda: ‘As if the world doesn’t have enough problems’
In Uganda, a law has been approved to make it a crime to identify as part of the LGBTQ community.
Seven-time World Champion and LGBTQ supporter Lewis Hamilton has hit out at the Ugandan government, after the African nation introduced a disgraceful new bill.
“As if the world doesn’t have enough problems,” Hamilton wrote on Instagram.
“This is so disappointing, Uganda government you need to undo this immediately!!”
Former Aston Martin chief communications officer Matt Bishop was quick to praise Hamilton for “as usual” being “brilliant on track and brilliant off track”, with the Mercedes star having often used his remarkable platform for a lot of good.
Bishop praised Hamilton on social media, with his post on Twitter having read: “Well done @LewisHamilton, brilliant on track & brilliant off track as usual, for speaking out on Instagram (see screen-grab) against the appalling new bill passed by the Ugandan parliament that would make it a crime merely to identify as #LGBTQ.

“If you want to know more about the appalling new bill passed by the Ugandan parliament that would make it a crime merely to identify as #LGBTQ, here’s a short @Reuters video report on the subject. (2/2)”
