David Beckham is pretty damn fond of his princess daughter, Harper. This week, pictures emerged of Harper, 4, sucking on a pacifier as she walked with him. So obviously, the media felt the need to make that a headline and 'experts' decided to weigh in on it too.

The report coming from Daily Mail used the pictures to criticise the Beckhams for allowing Harper to suck on a pacifier. Is there nothing else better to report?

David took to Instagram to hit back at critics, saying they "have no right" to judge him as a parent.

He said:

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 …

We feel David didn't need to even defend himself because, why bother with such silly news? If you need a reminder, he's a pretty damn good dad from the looks of it:
