Good lord, I knew before I even clicked on comments there would be idiots here screaming about him doing this. This is his son that breakdances for fks sake, and spins on his head.
You know, going by your idiot theory, a woman walking around with a child planted on her hip WOULD BE JUST AS GUILTY. Because omg, would would happen if the mom dropped the baby!?
Give it a rest, seriously.

I understand that he might be playing with his son, but geesh why not swing him by the hands... Some should swing David Beckham or Victoria Beckham by the feet lets see if they like being swung by their feet..

btw someone feed Victoria some food.......She's all bones and she thinks being that skiinny looks hot which is NOT!

People, get a grip! He is just having fun with his kid! Kids today are so wimpy because they are so over protected! When I was a kid, we didn't wear bike helmets and knee pads, we didn't ride in car seats until we were 8 years old and yes...our parents swung us around for a few seconds like this! It was fun and we survived. Toughen up!!!

Beckham and his son are having fun and bonding. His son looks like he laughing, not crying or screaming for help. Relax folks.

OMG! OMG! OMG! It looks like this child abuse might have also caused his hand to make unprotected contact with the bare ground! Obiviously you all aren't aware of the billions of bacteria and viruses he may have just been exposed to! Someone should have immediately disinfected his hand and taken the proper precaution of calling his doctor to obtain the necessary antibiotics. This leads me to believe that these negligent parents might compromise his health by allowing others dangerous acts such as playing "red rover" or even spinning in circles until he becomes dizzy! I just can't believe parents today....its like they somehow believe that humans weren't meant to sit in a cusioned chair in a padded room minimizing the risk of their existence.

Is that child, who looks to be about 4 or 5 wearing a diaper? That would concern me more than what he's doing.

Wow people, Where are the rest of the pics in this? The FATHER is playing with his son. And you know what? We don't see a whole lot of that in this world with celebs!! Good for Daddy playing with his FIVE YEAR OLD son and it is NOT dangerous as long as the child is being held secure. Health nurses recomend that you do not throw a child in the air nor swing a child until they are two years of age and he is well over two. Looks like a lot of you aren't parent and if you are, I think your poor kids must not have much fun :(
