It's the turn of the year and is seemingly that time in the calendar when people have nothing better to do than have a go at David Beckham.

The former Manchester United and Real Madrid superstar footballer has caused a parenting storm after Victoria, his wife, posted the above video of the ex-midfielder letting his six-year-old daughter, Harper, drive a golf buggy.
People have not held back in giving their opinion, including this guy who seemingly decided he had to tell someone about an Airbnb that was apparently more like a dungeon. Not sure how it's relevant to the golf buggy...
To be fair to the Beckhams, they might be considering branching out into the Airbnb business and this is invaluable advice. Remember, Dave, if you rent out one of your pads, make sure the thermostat is working.
But we're getting side-tracked. The main reactions have been to either go in on David and Victoria or to offer support to Posh and Becks.
At the time of writing, the post has been viewed 2.2 million times and has received 820 comments, either telling Becks he is playing a dangerous game or to congratulate him on some family fun.

Meanwhile, vanecalatroni got very technical as they posted: "Awwwwww this girl will be a very strong woman. She looks like enjoy driving:blue_car:. From a mechanical engineering student."
However, kitty4983 was in a far more cynical frame of mind as they replied: "I think you knew this video would be controversial!"
That led to some inevitable debate, with lornabrowett hitting back by saying: "What's wrong with some people this is a lovely Dad and Daughter moment. She is with her Dad who would never let any harm come to her. Lighten up I for one love how the family let us share there spacial moments." (sic)
We'll let you make your own minds ups but this isn't the first time people have felt the need to let Becks know about his parenting skills (we can't confirm about Airbnb advice).
Back in the summer, David sparked an online debate after posting a picture of himself kissing his daughter on the lips.
The reaction was so intense that he felt the need to respond, insisting that kissing on the lips is how he and Victoria show 'affection' towards their kids.
He said: "I got actually criticised for kissing my daughter on the lips the other day. I kiss all my kids on the lips."
Happy 2018, everyone.
