People will complain about anything these days. With easy access to social media, it's easier than ever to vent and complain about things online. If you see something that you don't like, it doesn't take a lot to quickly rustle up an online storm about it.
And there's one person who never misses out on the opportunity to criticize anything that's slightly out of the norm. British journalist and TV presenter, Piers Morgan, is usually the first to have his say on trending topics, gender-related subjects, and celebrities. And he rarely fails to create a viral kick-off with his comments.
The subject of his most recent annoyance is British soccer star, David Beckham. One of David's many Instagram posts depicts him giving his daughter, Harper, a kiss. Seemingly innocent so far, right? Not according to Piers. The presenter isn't too happy with the kiss and has branded David "creepy" and "weird" for doing it.
Piers Morgan rarely has nothing to say...
via: GettyThe British TV presenter constantly has to have his opinion heard. Whether it's about politics, women's issues, or any other thing that doesn't concern him, he usually has something to say about it.
The journalist has several platforms.

And he certainly isn't absent on Twitter...

He's spent a lot of time here in the States.

And he's a good friend of our President, Donald Trump.
He remains the only British journalist to have secured a one-to-one interview with the President.Piers Morgan was the only journalist who was able to carry out interviews with the President during his visits to the UK. Say what you will about him, but he has achieved some admirable things. Though being buddies with Trump may give you an advantage in this situation...
Though Piers' latest tantrum has nothing to do with the President.protests and the utter outrage), Piers' most recent outburst concerns a very different topic entirely.
Enter: The Beckhams.

And it's all over an Instagram post.Piers loves a good online controversy. And Beckham, who rose to fame after playing for British soccer team, Manchester United in 1991, hasn't dodged Piers' eagle eyes.
The Beckhams have always been very present on social media.
And we love their family pictures.
But not Piers.
Even James Bond wasn't safe.
Oh 007.. not you as well?!!! #papoose #emasculatedBond https://t.co/cqWiCRCFt3— Piers Morgan (@Piers Morgan)1539581503.0
He believes that papooses are "emasculating".

Piers doesn't miss a thing when it comes to parenting.If James Bond isn't safe, nobody is. So, of course, the Beckhams were going to feel Piers' heat at some point. But we never thought that it'd be over something so ridiculous...
It's all concerning an Instagram post.
Not according to Piers.
via: Good Morning BritainDuring an episode of Good Morning Britain, Piers hit out at Beckham, claiming that it was "weird" that the soccer star would kiss his young daughter directly on the lips. Watch the full video below!
He branded Beckham "creepy" for kissing his children.Piers just could not get over it: "This is weird. Everything about David Beckham is weird," he said. He also doesn't like the way that Beckham "exposes" his children to his large online following: "I'm sorry, it got a big furore on social media, it’s just weird. Who does that? Who kisses their kids on the lips?"
Though this isn't the first time that the Beckhams have come under fire.
via: Good Morning BritainPiers has had his say on the family's Instagram activity before. When Victoria shared a video to her Instagram Stories of David and Harper sharing another kiss, this time on a boat trip in Miami, Piers collapsed into another ranting frenzy.
Despite Piers' co-host, Susanna Reid, defending the kiss, Piers wouldn't budge.
But David has refused to apologize in the past.
And plenty of people have rushed to his defense.
Most parents were quick to disagree with Piers.
Supporting #DavidBeckham . Its not wrong to kiss your kids! https://t.co/64lH5NBdil— Louise Miller (@Louise Miller)1543421909.0
Some Twitter-users made things personal...
So piers has got his knickers in a twist about David beckham kissing his daughter on the lips... mate, I’m 31 and I… https://t.co/Sw6Pi8GmGJ— Chelsie Boyack (@Chelsie Boyack)1559632635.0
Victoria Beckham was also criticized a few years ago when she shared a vacation snap.
But the Beckham's aren't the only celebrities to openly kiss their children.
So, what's the verdict?Parenting methods will always be a controversial topic, especially when debated over the internet. And, despite Piers' apparent outrage over the topic, most people seem to agree on one thing.
That kissing your children is fine!
via: GettyShut up complaining, Piers. There's nothing wrong with sharing a quick peck on the lips with your child. It is a simple sign of love and affection and has never hurt anyone before.
