Sports star David Beckham seems to like nothing more than hanging out with his kids, espesh little lady Harper. And now he’s on Instagram, DB often shares his daily dad activities and isn’t afraid to use the social media platform to put his opinions across.

Anyone looking to take a shot at the handsome dad of 4 of his parenting skills might want to think twice after his publicly shamed an article posted on the MailOnline berating his skills as a father.

David was pictured out and about with Harper recently. The mini fashionista sported cute double buns, a floral frock and, in a shock to some, a dummy. The MailOnline article ripped into Becks, saying experts warn of the issues the 4-year-old might encounter if Becks and Victoria continue to allow her to suck on her dummy.

In what is being coined #Dummygate across the Internet, David posted a screenshot of the article along with the following caption on how nobody has the right to criticize a parent…

“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 ...”
