Kiss for Daddy

And apparently, the photo's ruffled more than a few feathers.

Some people deemed the photo, "inappropriate".

One Instagram user said:

 "David, to kiss lips of your daughter that's wrong."

Remarked another:

"To be honest kissing your daughter on the lips is a little weird".

Meanwhile, other people celebrated the photo:

Writes one Instagram user:

"I kiss both my mum and dad on the lips I am 29 and I have a 13 teen year old son who I kiss on the lips I was raised that was in a loving family if people are seeing something else it's terrible I think it's beautiful to have a special relationship with our children so that when they become Grown ups you will not only be mum and dad but a friend I am a single mama and I always raise my child with faith and love and nothing else."

Remarked another:

"To all the haters out there. This is simple photo of a loving father with his child, be it male or female. Sir, I applaud the love between you and your daughter and will always love my child until the end of my days. X"

David eventually appeared on Facebook Live to respond to the "controversy."

"I got actually criticized for kissing my daughter on the lips the other day. I kiss all my kids on the lips."

He clarified:

"Brooklyn, maybe not. Brooklyn’s 18, he might find that a little bit strange. But 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.

"We want to show our kids love and we protect them, look after them, and support them, and we’re very affectionate with them."








When are these prudish people going to go away. I have kissed my parents and siblings , and now neices and nephews on the lips my whole life ! I'm 51 years old and will continue to do just that. Nothing wrong with a family showing their love for each other.
