Since her Spice Girls days, Victoria Beckham quickly became a style icon and later a top fashion designer. Posh Spice, whose husband is David Beckham, still carries on with mum-duties, though, having four children, Brooklyn, 18, Romeo 15, Cruz 12 and Harper, six.

The former pop star (let's forget about the duet with Dane Bowers) has now faced a huge fan backlash after she posted a snap of her son, Cruz, chilling by the pool with a friend on social media.

He can be seen raising a glass, but according to fans there is a bottle of booze in between them.

Victoria jokingly captioned the pic: "Two little old men! @cruzbeckham @danieldarri55 #fizzyapplejuice #drinksatsunset #happyhour."

Obviously her 17.4 million Insta followers jumped to the conclusion that 12-year-old Cruz was on the lash in the snap and were promptly outraged without reading her hashtags.

"Alcohol??!!! For two little old men??!! Really? Is this allowed for VIP? Strange," slammed one fan.

Another quickly blasted: "Too young for alcohol?"

"Underage drinking? When their mother chews coffee beans to stop her drinking? Double standards me thinks," slated a third follower.

A final fan questioned: "Are they drinking champagne?"

The more eagle-eyed fans of the mum-of-five had already noticed that Victoria had been careful to point out that the two young friends were only drinking fizzy apple juice. They jumped to defend VB and her family.

"Its Apple juice for f*ck sake, people need to chill out," fired back one fan, while a second urged: "RELAX.....IT'S APPLE JUICE."

A third wrote: "It's fizzy apple juice look at the hash tags #theresalwaysone."

"Read the post before you judge," urged a final fan.

I think everyone needs to calm down a little bit, don't you?

I wanna, I wanna, I really, really, wanna zig-a-zig-ah.
