Lewis Hamilton has been criticized for feeding his dog a vegan diet.
F1 star Roscoe’s bulldog is a celebrity in his own right, with 410,000 Instagram followers.

Hamilton shared photos of the dog in front of a plate of strawberries, pineapple and kiwi.
Following a section on Good Morning Britain, social media users were quick to point out the alleged hypocrisy on Hamilton’s part.
One user wrote: ‘Lewis Hamilton went too far in feeding his dog vegan meals.
“It’s not his right to decide.”
An apparent contradiction was pointed out by a critic who said: “Lewis Hamilton, vegan and gives his dog a vegan diet because he wants to do his part, then has his picture taken in his private jet after driving an F1 car . Ironic … “
Another said: “Lewis Hamilton and his vegan dog were sitting in a private jet. He cares about the welfare of animals by not eating them, but he will gladly pollute the world.
