Never ever criticize David Beckham's parenting skills because he will fight back -- and you'll just end up looking bad.

According to a post on his Instagram, Beckham has enough and spoke up about a story the Daily Mail ran questioning why 4-year-old daughter Harper is still using a pacifier or dummy.

In a piece headlined: "Why does Harper, four, still use a dummy? Experts warn David and Victoria Beckham's little girl may end up with 'speech or dental issues' if she continues to use one," the paper ruminated on the important issue, talking to experts, while doling out advice for the famous couple.

Beckham was visibly upset at the story and lashed out on his Instagram account with his 10 million followers and they offered him their support for speaking up.

One user wrote:

"Pacify means it calms you and that's doing its job. I know I'm young and don't understand parenting but I know it's not right to criticize other people's parenting. I myself have a speech problem and it wasn't cause of a pacifier. I think you are doing a fine parenting job. "
