SWITZERLAND JUNE 10 – Formula 1 ace Lewis Hamilton boasts about flying his pet pooches all around the world in a private jet – despite also claiming to be a vegan in a bid to make the world a better place.
Most recently the current F1 champion said he flies his bulldog Coco from his home in Malibu, California so it can catch up with Roscoe – the same breed – who prefers life in the UK.
Hamilton, 34, posted a picture of Coco on a private jet, adding: ‘In case you didn’t know about my two kids.
‘This is Roscoe and Coco. Coco is living the life by the beach in Malibu. Roscoe is in the UK with grandma enjoying the sun. To be reunited soon.’
This post draws a stark contrast to one where he lamented the damage meat production does to the planet, despite estimates suggesting that each 5,400 mile flight from Los Angeles to Heathrow generates 1.67 tonnes of CO2.
He said: ‘I stopped eating red meat two years ago. I have generally been pescatarian for the majority of the year and now I’ve cut fish.
‘Pollution coming from the amount of cows that are being produced is incredible. The cruelty is horrible and I want a healthier life.
‘They say it is more than what we produce with our flights and our cars, which is kind of crazy to think.’
Hamilton, from Stevenage, regularly flaunts his lavish lifestyle online and has even created a page for his dogs to flaunt their’s too.
‘Roscoelovescoco’ is the page of ‘Roscoe & Coco Hamilton’, and it boasts upwards of 157,000 followers.
