(WRIC) — David Beckham is responding to social media backlash after a media report criticized he and his wife, Victoria, for allowing their 4-year-old daughter Harper to continue to use a pacifier.
The Daily Mail ran a photo of the couple’s child in a pink sundress as she sucked on her pacifier. “Experts warn David and Victoria Beckham’s little girl may end up with ‘speech or dental issues’ if she continues to use one,” the headline reads.
The article goes on to say that Harper “is well beyond the age that most health experts would advise giving a child a [pacifier.]”
David Beckham responded with a fiery Instagram post of a screenshot of the article.
“Why do people feel they have the right to criticize a parent about their own children without having any facts??” Beckham asked in his caption. “Everybody who has children knows that when they aren’t feeling well or have a fever you do what comforts them best, and most of the time it’s a pacifier.”
Why do people feel they have the right to criticize a parent about their own children without having any facts ?? Everybody who has children knows that when they aren't feeling well or have a fever you do what comforts them best and most of the time it's a pacifier so those who criticize think twice about what you say about other people's children because actually you have no right to criticize me as a parent …
