After Lewis Hamilton, now Sebastian Vettel shared his views.
As we wrote earlier this week, Formula One racer Lewis Hamilton posted on Instagram to express his support towards the LGBTQ community in Hungary.
“To all in this beautiful country Hungary. Ahead of the Grand Prix this weekend, I want to share my support for those affected by the government’s LGBTQ+ law. It is unacceptable, cowardly and misguiding for those in power to suggest such a law. Everyone deserves to have the freedom to be themselves, no matter who they love or how they identify. I urge the people of Hungary to vote in the upcoming referendum to protect the rights of the LGBTQ+ community, they need our support more than ever. Please show love for those around you because Love will always win. Sending you positivity,” he wrote.
Later, Judit Varga, the Minister of Justice, responded to Hamilton’s message in a Facebook post, reports Telex.
“I regret to see that today, Lewis Hamilton joined the camp of international fake news producers by attacking our child protection law. The protection of Hungarian children remains the task of Hungarian parents and not of foreign racing drivers. I myself learned the rules of the road from textbooks and not by following the media.
Let me recommend Lewis Hamilton to read the Hungarian Child Protection Act before saying nonsense. Let the cobbler stick to his last and the F1 driver to his race. Good luck with the Hungaroring race,” the politician wrote.
Most recently, Sebastian Vettel joined the people who have already expressed their views regarding the Hungarian LGBTQ law that caused international public uproar, writes the BBC.
“Everyone is free to do what they want and that is the point. We have had so many opportunities to learn in the past and I can’t understand why you are struggling to see people should be free to do what they like, love who they like.
It is along the lines of live and let live. It is not for us to make the law but just to express the support for those who are affected by it,” said Vettel.
