This week pictures emerged of 4-year-old Harper Beckham sucking a dummy as she walked with her father, David.
A report from the Daily Mail used the pictures to criticise the Beckhams for allowing her to do so, and even quoted an expert who claimed it could have damaging effects on their daughter.
But now David has taken to his Instagram account to hit back at critics, insisting that they "have no right" to judge him as a parent.
He also called for people to "think twice" before they complain about other parents without having any facts.
Beckham screengrabbed the article and wrote next to it:
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 ...
