Victoria Beckham has received backlash from critics online for posting a photo of her kissing her daughter on the lips.
It was supposed to be a harmless photo and a beautiful moment between Victoria and her five-year-old daughter, Harper, on the girl’s birthday, but some critics have called it “inappropriate”.
Some critics have commented, “So lesbian”, while another one described it as, “Inappropriate.” However, despite this, other people showed their support for Victoria.
It’s a “beautiful display of motherly love,” wrote one, and “nothing wrong or impure about kissing your child,” said another.
In a Kiss 1011 FM report just last year, Dr Charlotte Reznik caused a stir after claiming parents kissing their children on the lips was sexual.
“If you start kissing your kids on the lips, when do you stop? It gets very confusing,’ she said. “As a child gets to 4 or 5 or 6 and their sexual awareness comes about (and some kids have an awareness earlier – as when we notice they start masturbating at 2 or 3 sometimes – they just discover their private parts and it feels good), the kiss on the lips can be stimulating to them.
“Even if that never occurs to a child, it´s just too confusing! If mummy kisses daddy on the mouth and vice versa, what does that mean when I, a little girl or boy, kiss my parent on the mouth?”
Victoria’s husband, David also posted a kissing snap to celebrate Harper’s fifth birthday “” but this time, the little girl was just kissing his cheek.
Victoria’s photo has now been liked more than 560,000 times.
