David Beckham Shuts Down A Fan After 'Botox' Claim

At the ripe old age of 42, one might be forgiven for having a few lines on the face. And if a 42 year-old have survived to that age without gaining a crinkle or two, then more power to them. Right?

Not if you're an Instagrammer, and certainly not if the wrinkle-free face in question belongs to one of the most famously handsome men in the world, namely former England captain David Beckham.

The ex-Manchester United superstar was captured in a photo with his son Brooklyn and the new editor-in-chief of British Vogue, Edward Enniful, supporting wife Victoria at New York Fashion Week a snap that was later posted to Instagram.

Beneath the line, many commenters were quick to point out how good David was looking - with a few suggesting that he might have had a spot of artificial assistance in maintaining his famously good looks.

"Botox looks good on @DavidBeckham" wrote one user. Big claims.

D Becks was clearly following the comment chain, posting: "I don't agree with Botox, Miss, but I'll take it as a compliment" as well as a thumbs up emoji.

Rarely do celebs wade into the comments to take on their critics, but Becks engagement with his fans did garner him a few new friends. "Haha. This made me laugh!" wrote one user, while another said "Damn, you got owned" to the original commenter.

Others sided with Becks, saying that his face had lines and didn't look Botoxed. While one suggested a wholly different type of nefariousness, writing "Maybe it's just a picture effect or Photoshop?"

Of course, everything that Becks, and his family, does is photographed and discussed to within an inch of its life. The former midfielder has been famous for his fashion for just about as long as he was famous for his football and, now that he has retired, he regularly attends high fashion events, such as this one.

He also took to Instagram to post a photo of himself and son Brooklyn, taken at the event, where lines are clearly visible on his face. It probably hasn't stopped commenters discussing it, though.
