Outspoken Katie Hopkins has finally had her say on David Beckham and the dummy saga

It was only a matter of time before Katie Hopkins voiced her opinion over the David Beckham dummy saga.

On Tuesday, David hit back at a report that claimed he shouldn’t be allowing four-year-old daughter Harper to continue using a dummy. The footballer took to Instagram and questioned why anyone has ‘the right to criticise a parent about their own children without having any facts?’

Now though, outspoken star Katie Hopkins has spoken out to Becks, 40, saying:

‘Becks, you inked bundle of loveliness, you make a living out of the world watching you. You can’t dictate a soft filter for the lens as well.’

Writing in her column for The Sun newspaper, 40-year-old Katie added:

‘As I often lecture businesses, it is not the email you send which matters, but how people feel when they read it. Therein lies the truth of your words.’

She then wrote:

‘To that end, it is not the dummy in your daughter’s face which matters, or the opinions of the sofa-sitting masses.You have to question why you are letting their opinions upset you and own your problem.’

It was after David and Harper were seen out in LA together, with Harper sucking on a pink dummy, that health experts warned it could damage the tot’s teeth, and even hinder her speech development.

David shared a photo of the report on his Instagram and wrote:

‘Why do people feel they have the right to criticize a parent about their own children without having any facts?? Everybody who has children knows that when they aren’t feeling well or have a fever you do what comforts them best and most of the time it’s a pacifier so those who criticize think twice about what you say about other people’s children because actually you have no right to criticize me as a parent…’

David has three other children with wife Victoria Beckham, 41 – Brooklyn, 16, Romeo, 12, and Cruz, 10.
