Victoria Beckham has the most adorable family in the entire world, and we know those Beckhams are very affectionate with one another; they’re constantly hugging and holding hands. You’d think fans of the family would appreciate their closeness, right?
Well, apparently some folks are out to shame Victoria and her eldest, Brooklyn, for simply going on a mother-son date.
Last night, the two attended the Argento Ball For The Elton John AIDS Foundation in Windsor, and Victoria brought Brooklyn as her plus-one. But some fans saw fit to voice their concern that the sweet gesture was “inappropriate,” particularly after seeing photos of the star helping her son with his tie (because, er, that’s such a strange thing for a mom to do? Not quite).
One user commented: “While I think it is lovely that she is bringing her son to the ball, the photo is a tad inappropriate looking — maybe it’s the poses but it looks slightly inappropriate. Am I wrong?” Another chimed in, “Shouldn’t David be your ‘date’ not your son?”
More loyal fans were quick to defend the Beckhams: “Think she looks gorg and all she is doing is putting on her sons tie who will always be her baby no matter how old.”
Victoria’s husband, soccer star David Beckham, has also come under fire in the past for being publicly affectionate with his children. Last year, some fans were offended when he posted a picture kissing his daughter on the lips. He later made a statement in defense of the picture, saying that he and Victoria were simply raised in affectionate households and chose to raise their children the same way.
We think it’s sweet that Victoria brought her son as her date to an event, and PDA between family members — when it’s of the harmless variety we’re seeing here — is nothing strange. For our part, we’d like to tell the trolls to chill the hell out.
