He's not alone

| Updated:

Emmerdale actor James Moore has hit back at Piers Morgan after he called parents “weirdos” for kissing their children on the lips.

Piers tweeted: “Staggering how many people on here kiss their kids on the lips. Weirdos.”

The Emmerdale actor retweeted the message commenting: “They’re not weirdos, Piers. You’re a weirdo for making it seem like anything other than an innocent display of affection.”

This comes after David Beckham received backlash after posted a picture of him kissing his seven year old daughter Harper on the lips while out ice skating.

One fan wrote: “That looks wrong.”

Another posted: “She’s your daughter… why are you kissing her on the lips..?”

One of those who agreed with the comments was Piers Morgan. On Good Morning Britain, Piers slammed David Beckham for kissing his daughter on the lips who also expressed his views on Twitter.

James Moore wasn’t the only the only one to slam Piers Morgan.

His followers hit back by posting pictures of them kissing their children on the lips.

Peter Andre, who appeared on Good Morning Britain yesterday, stated: “I agree with you on some points that if you’re going to put it on social media you’ll open yourself up.

“But they are taking the innocence out of everything.”
