Celebrity

The former professional soccer star was outraged over a story criticizing his parenting after his daughter was spotted with a pacifier in her mouth.

AceShowbiz - David Beckham took to Instagram on Monday, August 10 to blast Daily Mail over a story criticizing his parenting after his 4-year-old daughter Harper was photographed with a pacifier in her mouth. David was upset as people weighed in on whether it was right for Harper to still use a pacifier at her age.

Victoria Adams' husband posted a screencapture of Daily Mail's article which showed a photo of him walking beside Harper with her pacifier. The article was headlined, "Why does Harper, four, still use a dummy? Experts warn David and Victoria Beckham's little girl may end up with 'speech or dental issues' if she continues to use one."

David wrote alongside the screenshot, "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."
