Is there anything wrong with a father being affectionate towards his son?
Yesterday, controversial rapper 50 cent shared photos of himself spending some quality time with his son, Sire on his Instagram page. One of the photos showed the toddler playing with his father’s chain while the other was a shot of the rapper kissing his son on the lips.
The kissing photo caught the attention of 50 cent’s fans who proceeded to heavily criticize the rapper.
While some fans accused the rapper of encouraging his young child to be homosexual, others labelled the act as vile and extremely inappropriate. They also took the opportunity to question the In da Club rapper’s responsibilities towards his estranged son, Marquise and slammed him for playing favourites towards Sire because of his skin colour.
On the other hand, some other fans were of the opinion that men should generally show more affection towards their male children especially black men.
See the reactions below.
50 cent isn’t the first celebrity to be criticized for being ‘overly’ affectionate with their kid. Rapper, The Game has also been thrown under the bus for being too intimate with his daughter, California Dream Taylor.
So what’s your take, do you think this is wrong?
