Piers Morgan has labelled David Beckham ‘weird and creepy’ for kissing his daughter Harper on the lips in an Instagram video.
Beckham was seen giving his seven-year-old daughter Harper a peck on the lips on a boat while on holiday with her, causing Piers to cringe and say it was creepy.
Speaking on Good Morning Britain this morning, Piers declared: ‘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?,’ he added.
‘Weird, Weird, weird, it’s just weird.’
Susanna Reid defended David’s display of affection to his daughter, but admitted that she thought it was inappropriate for it to be posted online.
Piers added that a ‘firm handshake’ to the sons, and a peck on the cheek for the daughter was the best response to both.
David has doubled down and refused to apologise for being affectionate with his kids despite the troll backlash for a similar video several years ago.
In a Facebook Live transmission in 2017, David said: ‘I kiss all my kids on the lips.’
‘Brooklyn, maybe not. Brooklyn’s 18, he might find that a little bit strange,’ he said, adding: ‘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 you know, we’re very affectionate with them,’ he said.
Unsurprisingly, Piers had something to say about it back then, too.
Good Morning Britain continues weekdays at 6am on ITV.
