New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is telling the world where he stands on the debate surrounding David Beckham kissing his daughter, Harper.
The backlash began after David posted a photo of him and his 7-year-old daughter having fun at an ice skating rink and giving each other a small peck on the lips (back in 2017, David was blasted by critics for sharing a similar picture).
Some commenters immediately said it was "wrong" of the soccer star to kiss his child on the mouth. "I feel like a kiss on the cheek is better than that on the lips. The lips is just weird," one remarked. Another simply declared that it "was not appropriate" behavior.
Of course, not all the comments were all negative — the majority, in fact, found the photo to be nothing but precious. Among those positive commenters was Tom, who wrote "Dad and daughter. So sweet!"
It's not too surprising that Tom would show David support. In February 2018, the father-of-three sparked outraged when he kissed his 11-year-old son Jack on the lips on Tom vs. Time.
Besides Tom, David's wife, Victoria, has been attacked for posting a photo of her and Harper kissing on the mouth in the past. Clearly, the practice is customary in the Beckham household.
David has not responded to the backlash and has kept the photo up on his Instagram feed. Regardless of the controversy, the picture was meant to be nothing more than a snapshot of a sweet moment between father and daughter. Let's just call it that, shall we?
