Piers Morgan claims that David Beckham is “weird and creepy” for kissing his daughter Harper on the lips in an Instagram video.
The former football star had shared a family holiday video showing him giving seven-year-old Harper a peck on a boat trip in Florida's Everglades.
Speaking on Good Morning Britain, Piers said: “It’s very sweet… [but] why would a father kiss his daughter on the lips? Don’t get it… creepy. Weird.”
“Then you post that for the world – You posted that for the world, why? Weird, Weird, weird, it’s just weird.”
Co-host Susanna Reid came to Beckham’s defence by by saying that she too kisses her three children on the lips.
“Aww, they love each other,” she said.
“Well the interesting thing is he came in for a lot of criticism when he posted a video like that a couple of years ago and he's obviously just doubled down and thought, 'well that's what I do’,” Reid added.
In 2017, David defended himself against online trolls who criticised him for kissing his daughter on the lips.
“I kiss all my kids on the lips. Brooklyn, maybe not. Brooklyn's 18, he might find that a little bit strange,” he said.
“I'm very affectionate with the kids. It's how I was brought up and Victoria, and it's how we are with our children.”
