Whether or not parents should kiss their kids on the lips has been a topic of hot debate over the years.
Recently, the Twitter community exploded after a video showing NFL star Tom Brady kissing his 10-year-old son on the lips emerged.
Brady, 40, lying on a table was getting a massage when his son, Jack, entered the room.
When 10-year-old Jack gave his dad a peck, the NFL star called him back.
“That was like a peck,” Brady says.
Half walking away, Jack lets out a sigh and an eye roll before walking back to his dad and kissing him again for a few more seconds.
Immediately after kissing Brady, he keeps discussing his fantasy team with the NFL star’s masseuse and wipes his mouth with his shirt.
Unsurprisingly, a lot of reactions came up on Twitter after the clip was shared with commenters weighing in on whether or not it was appropriate.
Former boxing champion Nigel Benn sparked a similar controversy 2 years ago after giving his son who had just won his first professional fight via knockout a congratulatory kiss on the lips on live television.
Obviously in reaction to the Brady video, US writer Adam Lamb recently posted a video of him kissing his son on Instagram.
“My son and I kiss like this daily,” Adam wrote.
“The problem is that not enough Dads do the same. I know what it is like to have a father that couldn’t show love and I also know what it is like to BE a father and show a ton of love to my son.
“One of the biggest problems we have in this country is men and proper masculinity,” the mid-30-year-old author added.
