David Beckham Defends Kissing Daughter On Lips

Will you allow your father to kiss you on the lips if you had a choice?

Retired football star, David Beckham has sparked an online debate after he shared a photo of himself kissing his seven-year-old daughter Harper while ice-skating in London.

Mixed reactions have been trailing the photo shared by the 43-year-old with many saying it is ‘wrong’ for a father to kiss his daughter on the lips.

One follower posted:

‘I don’t care what anyone says if a dad kisses a child on the lips it’s completely wrong smd’.

Another wrote:

“She’s your daughter. .why are you kissing on her lips..?..that’s ur wife kiss…’, while a third shared, ‘I feel like a kiss on the cheek is better than that n the lips. The lips is just weird.”

In his defence, Beckham also had some loyal fans insist people are ‘sick’ for ruining a completely natural image.

“It’s a beautiful photo of a loving father. Why do people have to ruin something so innocent,” one fan commented.

Another posted:

‘There is nothing wrong, if you think there is then go get some help because you have mental health issues, seriously ❤”.

This isn’t the first time David has come under fire for sharing a photo of himself kissing daughter on the lips. Last year, he was forced to defend his decision, insisting that he and his wife Victoria are “always very affectionate” towards their four children.

The sports star had hit back at his critics while taking part in a Facebook Live on his own official page during a trip to Bangkok, and insisted he kisses all of his children on the lips aside from his eldest son Brooklyn.
