Former F1 world champion Damon Hill gave a sharp reply to some Lewis Hamilton fans, telling them to shut up about what happened at Abu Dhabi.
Fans are the lifeblood of any sport. However, as is the case with anything in life, there are a few bad eggs in there. Some fans are absolutely toxic and their comments unnecessary, and Hill was the latest to experience it.
The F1 legend tweeted regarding the tragic passing of famous singer Ronnie Spector. He shared one of her songs, named Try some, buy some, as a tribute. However, a fan too the opportunity to comment, “Is that song about Sky Sports F1 and F1 ‘journalists’?! Or? Asking for a friend #SkyF1xed #F1xed #Shame.”
In response to the inappropriate comment, Hill gave a sharp reply to some Hamilton fans going overboard, saying that their complaining wasn’t going to change what happened at the season finale.
“If you are a Hamilton fan, do yourself a favour and get over it because it’s not coming back. Ever,” he replied, as quoted by formula1news.co.uk.
“Look forward to seeing Lewis Hamilton sock it to ’em in 2022. Winners don’t constantly bleat on about how unfair it all is. Show some backbone. Queue hate….”
Tough Hill to swallow
Hill later ended up apologising, but it wasn’t what his haters wanted. He ironically ended up poking more fun at the trolls when he said sorry for his tweet, but for his language and grammar rather than the contents.
“I’d just like to apologise to everyone for the last Tweet. It’s ‘cue’ not ‘queue’,” he said.
“My mistake. Although there will probably be a queue forming soon…”
