After getting too much heat and criticism on his photograph that he shared while kissing her daughter on the lips, the veteran footballer David Beckham came to the receiving end by his follower.
The veteran football star David Beckham posted a photograph of him kissing his five-year-old daughter on a beach last month, but this was something not accepted by many of his followers as they responded by calling it “inappropriate”.

But during a Facebook Live session, Beckham said that he is “very affectionate” with his kids because that is the way he has grown up.
“I got actually criticised for kissing my daughter on the lips the other day. I kiss all my kids on the lips,” he said.
“Brooklyn, maybe not. Brooklyn’s 18, he might find that a little bit strange. But I’m very affectionate with the kids. It’s how I was brought up and Victoria, and it’s how we are with our children.”, he further
“We want to show our kids love and we protect them, look after them, and support them, and we’re very affectionate with them.” people in the above ongoing debate suggested that parents should not kiss their child on the lips because as it could be “confusing”. ‘Confusing!’ as what?
“If you start kissing your kids on the lips, when do you stop? It gets very confusing.”, Dr Charlotte Reznick, a child and educational psychologist at Californian university UCLA, said, but disagreeing with his quatation child psychologist Dr Fiona Martin said “It’s beautiful. Anything that promotes emotional connectivity is good. It’s certainly not inappropriate to kiss your child.”
The picture of David kissing his daughter got millions of likes but at the same time was also criticised by various followers as many commented in disagreement of the action.
“David, to kiss lips of your daughter that’s wrong,” and “to be honest kissing your daughter on the lips is a little weird.”, whereas some were in favour and commented: “A father having a bond with his child is nothing less than beautiful.”
David’s wife Victoria was the subject of a similar debate in July last year when she posted a photo of her kissing Harper on the lips in a pool.
