David Beckham posts photo of kissing daughter Harper on the lips again, defies critics who trolled him 2 years ago
Celebrity soccer player David Beckham and daughter Harper Seven spent some quality family time at an ice rink near London’s National History Museum.
When it comes to trolling celebrities on social media, people tend to go any length to be critical and opinionated. Recently, soccer star David Beckham hit headlines with his latest Instagram post, where he is seen kissing his eight-year-old daughter, Harper Seven Beckham, on the lips.
The father-daughter duo spent some quality family time at an ice rink near London’s National History Museum. The posts showed David and Harper in a cheerful mood and his post caption read, "It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas... Thanks to @nhm_icerink for looking after us today." But it was his affectionate kiss to his daughter in the photo that caught the attention of Instagrammers who trolled him.
"Watch all the people who got so offended by you kissing your own daughter on the lips get offended for a second time," said a comment, while another read, "I was thinking the same, people will be appalled that a loving father dares to kiss his young daughter on the lips."
Some people went on to explain why they were not happy with the photo he posted. They said, "Ok dude, kissing your daughter on the lips has always been weird... and more as she gets older."
Some comments even said, "I try not to judge but I can't help but think it's pretty weird that he kisses her on the lips considering her age” and "Tbh kissing your daughter on the lips is a little weird.. yes it is."
This is not the first time David has been trolled for his posts and photos. In 2017, he posted a similar photo of him and his daughter and sparked a debate among netizens. In the post from two years ago, the soccer star was seen kissing Harper on lips and the post had a cute photo of the two of them with a caption that read, "Kiss for daddy."
This time around, however, David ignored all the criticisms from his past and went ahead with his expression of thought and personal life update.
Also, the opinions about his actions were divided and there was a group of people who did not see anything wrong in David showing his affection towards his little girl. As one of the users on Instagram commented, "So beautiful pal. My daughter kisses me on lips but because I'm not a celeb I'm not scrutinized like u."
In fact, the debate also resulted in a LADbible poll when the first post was shared, where about 86 percent of people took David’s post and action in a positive light and claimed that it was perfectly normal for a father to show his affection for his daughter anyway he wants.
