Fellow mothers stood up for Victoria Beckham who trollers earlier slammed for kissing daughter Harper on the lips.

Victoria Beckham posted an Instagram pic that was meant to honor her daughter’s fifth birthday. Her caption for the image likely expressed in words the essence of what the sweet image captured. Husband David Beckham also posted a pic with their daughter planting a kiss on her father’s cheek. However, the innocent photo of the mother-daughter kiss on the lips sent trollers in a frenzy.

Trollers had a field day criticizing it. Some questioned the type of kiss shared by Victoria Beckham and her daughter. Others described it as strange and even called it perverse. They also labeled it as a make out session and another branded the pair as lesbians.

It eventually cascaded into a debate on social media with trollers versus mothers. Indeed, fellow mothers stood up for the former Spice Girl and mom of four. The angry moms seemed to have had enough of the hate and shared their own pictures as proof that it is normal, The Sun wrote. One mother slammed trollers for suggesting the act was sexual in any way. Meanwhile, mother Gemma Hook had a lot to say to those who called the kiss as something other than what it is.

“To all you haters out there, GROW UP! My children have always kissed me on the lips… and the arm, the forehead, the ear, the nose, the tummy the list could go on forever. To them it’s just a kiss not a romantic gesture and as a parent it’s our job to take that love unconditionally. You need to open your eyes and see the beauty in the love between a parent and child and not turn it into something it so clearly isn’t!”

Happy Birthday baby girl 🙏🏻💕 We all love you so much 💜💜💜 X @davidbeckham @brooklynbeckham kisses from mummy X
