A 62-year-old dad was slammed by netizens after posting a picture of him kissing his daughter on the lips.
TVB veteran actor Joseph Lee and his family went to Macau to celebrate his daughter’s 15th birthday on 21 July.
He uploaded some pictures on Weibo captioned: “Yesterday was my daughter’s birthday! So happy!”
However, this photo of him kissing his daughter, Cherrie, on the lips garnered negative feedbacks online.
People quickly judged the actor calling him “disgusting and perverted”.
Some even expressed their negative reaction with one stating, “I don’t think you should kiss your daughter like that. Males and females should be treated differently after all.”
On the other hand, others defended the actor, saying, “If you think this is dirty, then everything would be dirty to you.”
In a text message sent to the media recently, Joseph said that it was a normal thing for a father to kiss his daughter on the lips and that he has done that since his daughter was just a baby.
“As far as I know, a lot of other people understand me, so I don’t need to explain things that have never been an issue,” he said.
Meanwhile, Cherie also expressed her frustration about the whole issue, saying that it was nothing but a paternal love.
“I think it’s just ridiculous that a kiss by a family member is distorted into something vulgar,” she added.
