David Beckham defiantly kisses daughter on lips in New Year video

He has been slammed for this before

It appears the Beckhams enjoyed an almighty New Year’s Eve bash en famille, and David seemed to be delivering on in the eye to his trolls to boot.

Among the moments shared with his followers was video footage of him sharing a celebratory kiss on the lips with his young daughter, Harper.

A sweet moment, most would agree, but a gesture he knows will inflame some on social media… as past experience has proven.

David Beckham ‘fans’ last aired their disapproval at him giving seven-year-old Harper a peck on the lips last November.

The former footballer had shared a sweet shot showing the pair an a skating ring, on Instagram.

He captioned the picture: “Christmas is coming. Let’s go skate.”

An innocent moment between a loving dad and his little girl.

But certain people managed to twist it into something sinister, and social media now allows them a platform to share their nonsense with the world.

Christmas is coming 🎅🏼 Let’s go skate ♥️

“She’s your daughter… why are you kissing on her lips..?” one critic wrote.

Another moaned: “That looks wrong.”

And that wasn’t the first time David, 43, had been abused for posting an affectionate shot; the same happened when he posted a pic of him and Harper sharing a peck when she was five years old.

He hit back then, saying: “I got actually criticised for kissing my daughter on the lips the other day.

“I kiss all my kids on the lips. 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.

“We want to show our kids love and we protect them, look after them, and support them, and we’re very affectionate with them.”

Wife Victoria, 44, was similarly trolled for sharing a lip-peck kiss pic with her daughter the same year, 2017.
