IT'S the picture that's dividing the internet.
Victoria Beckham shared the snap (below) with her 11.6 million Instagram followers, on Sunday (UK time).
The photo depicts her kissing her five year-old daughter Harper on the lips.
And what was supposed to be a nice birthday message - the 42 year-old captioned her picture by writing: "Happy birthday baby girl, we love you so much" - has created a social media storm.
Clearly while some people see a mother embracing her daughter - the vast majority of the comments on Beckham's Instagram account were positive - other people were deeply upset,
"Normally with a member of your family you don't kiss on the lips unless it's your husband," she said. "With children, I wouldn't have thought it's a particularly good habit to get into but it's her child and she's at liberty to do what she thinks is best," she said.
"I would be uncomfortable doing that and I think most people would be. If she feels it's appropriate, so be it. I wouldn't say it sets a particularly good example."
