However, the post didn’t go down well with some of Beckham’s followers, who argued that the interaction ‘is not normal’.
One follower asked: “Wait, what!? Why do families kiss on the lips?”
“On the lips… no!” added another.
A third pitched in, commenting: “This is not normal. She is grown.”
“Why do you kiss your daughter on the lips?” a fourth questioned. “It’s weird and inappropriate.”
However, the majority of followers stood by the 46-year-old and insisted that there’s ‘nothing wrong’ with a father kissing his child.
Defending Beckham, one fan wrote: “To anyone calling this weird – she’s 10 and she’s giving her dad a kiss. Get a grip and shut up.”
In agreement, a second fumed: “If you think there’s something wrong with it, it’s your own mind that is messed up!”
“Disgusted by the comments and actions of some people all over a picture of a loving father kissing his daughter. This world is a sad place to live in these days,” a third penned.
