David’s continual images of a similar nature mark his defiance in the face of critics, with fans frequently divided over such images. 

Back in 2018, David shared a sweet snap of himself kissing then-seven-year-old daughter Harper while ice-skating in London.

The former footballer’s innocent picture was met with a flurry of comments from trolls claiming it was ‘wrong’ for a father to kiss his daughter on the lips. 

Many loyal fans soon rushed to his defence with the likes of WAG Rebekah Vardy insisting people were ‘sick’ for ruining a completely natural image.
