Can We Not Freak Out About David Beckham Kissing His Daughter on the Lips?
First his wife Victoria got blasted for kissing Harper on the lips and now her husband is being blasted for the same reason. But we think it's much ado about nothing.
Remember last summer when Victoria Beckham posted an adorable pic of herself kissing her daughter Harper on the lips on Instagram along with a sweet birthday message ("Happy Birthday baby girl. We all love you so much. Kisses from mummy") and swiftly got called out by the Internet for being "inappropriate?"
Well, now her husband is being taken to task for the exact same reason!
Last weekend, David Beckham posted a seriously cute shot of him kissing his baby girl in front of a beautiful sunset while vacationing in Tanzania, which he succinctly captioned "Kiss for Daddy." Apparently, that was all it took to bring out the Instagram haters, who swiftly showed up in the comment section to call Beckham everything from a pervert to a pedophile.
"This is wrong," wrote one. "Especially father and daughter."
"Parents and kids don't make out!!" added another.
Um, what? Seriously, guys, this is just so sad. Because what I see here is a beautiful photo of a father expressing his unconditional love toward his young daughter. It's a priceless depiction of the purest type of parental affection, a perfectly innocent image that showcases the amazing bond these two share.
