David Beckham FORCED to defend himself after facing backlash for kissing daughter Harper on the lips in cute family photo
David Beckham has been forced to defend himself after he posted a cute photo of him and daughter Harper kissing one another on the lips.
The image in question was originally posted on David's Instagram account as he gushed over his seven year old daughter.
Sharing the snap with his 38 million followers, the tattooed hunk wrote "Kiss for Daddy", followed by a red heart emoji.
But while several of the sporting icon's fans were left gushing over the sweet selfie, others were left questioning his parenting skills.
"In the lips??? what has the world come to," questioned one baffled Instagrammer.
While another added: "Not a good look."
Having seen the comments, the 42 year old felt the need to hit back with his own explanation of events.
Addressing the controversial backlash, David confirmed: "I kiss all my kids on the lips.
"Brooklyn maybe not. Brooklyn is 18, so he might find that a little strange, but I'm very affectionate with the kids.
He added: "It's how I was brought up - and Victoria - and it's how we are with our children."
