Tom Brady is revealing what he thinks of fellow celebrity dad David Beckham kissing his 7 year old daughter on the lips amidst intense scrutiny of the latter’s actions.
Yesterday, former football star David Beckham sparked controversy by posting a picture with his 7 year old daughter, Harper.
In the picture, Beckham is kissing his daughter on the lips. The caption of the picture is, “Christmas is coming. Let’s go skate.”
Immediately after he posted the picture, many fans took to the comments to suggest that they found this display of love and affection extremely weird.
One fan disgustedly asked, “How can [you] kiss your daughter on her lips?”
Another wrote, “He’s dating his daughter?”
“I don’t care what anyone says if a dad kisses a child on the lips it’s completely wrong,” wrote another fan.
“Disgusting,” another follower simply wrote.
One weighed in, “Weird – it’s improper for a parent to kiss their kid [on] the lips; on the forehead/cheeks is cute though.”
Another one asked, “It’s really weird for me, is this English culture?”
Some fans however, felt that there was nothing wrong with Beckham being affectionate towards his daughter.
One of the people to think is Tom Brady, who commented, “Dad and daughter. So sweet!”
Brady has faced similar criticisms himself. Earlier this year, he kissed his son Jack for several seconds during an episode of Tom vs Time.
Football star Willie Roaf said to TMZ at the time, “I wouldn’t do that…I don’t have a problem with it…I don’t think it’s that big a deal.”
Beckham has been criticised for this action before as well. He posted a photo of him kissing Harper on the lips in June 2017 which got him a lot of negative attention.
Beckham later said in a Facebook Live, “I got actually criticized for kissing my daughter on the lips the other day. I kiss all my kids on the lips.”
He added, “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 [Beckham], and it’s how we are with our children.”
The dedicated dad also said, “We want to show our kids love and we protect them, look after them, and support them, and we’re very affectionate with them.”
Several other fans understood Beckham’s sentiments and lashed out at those claiming this was something weird and unnatural.
David Beckham has not yet replied to this controversy.
