David Beckham has sparked an online debate after posting a picture of him kissing his daughter on the lips.
He posted the sweet picture to Instagram with the caption: 'Kiss for daddy'. Nice, right? Well, not according to the Internet.
Some people couldn't help but question the fact that he was kissing five-year-old Harper on the lips, with one user even accusing the star of being a 'pervert'.
One user wrote: "I try not to judge but I can't help but think it's pretty weird that he kisses her on the lips considering her age."
"Tbh kissing your daughter on the lips is a little weird.. yes it is," is another comment on the picture.
However, hundreds of Beckham's fans were quick to jump to his defence.

In fact I think it's necessary for a dad to do that. Every girl should be treated like a princess by their dad so they have high expectations in later life."
While thesartorialmumma added: "What is the world coming to when such a simple and loving gesture between a father and daughter garners such hate, disgust & divisiveness?! I am dumbfounded that people feel the need to spread their hate all over such a lovely, heartwarming photo.
"It's such a shame that dad's are forced to feel uncomfortable to show affection in such a way. What is wrong with this photo is not what is happening within it but the fact that the world now sees this as inappropriate. [sic]"
The picture has managed to attract an impressive 1.7 million likes at the time of writing, and David has kept it up there so clearly he doesn't have an issue with it.
The family are currently on holiday in the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania, and it seems they're having a pretty amazing time.
