What are your thoughts on a mother kissing her toddler son on the lips?

Some people had a lot to say when actress Hilary Duff shared a photo of her and her 4-year-old son kissing on the lips during a trip to Disneyland.

The 29-year-old star took to Instagram to share the sweet photo of her and her son Luca, which eventually resulted in endless criticism from Duff's fans and haters.

While some people saw nothing wrong with the photo, others feel that it is wildly "inappropriate" to kiss your child on the lips even if it's just a tap kiss.

Here's the photo Hilary Duff shared that outraged the internet.

People began voicing their disapproval of Duff kissing her son.

Yeah, the criticism was HARSH.

Duff even lost a few followers over the photo.

The haters went back and forth with Hilary's supportive fans.

Despite the overwhelming amount of hate mail Hilary Duff received after posting the photo, she surprisingly had more support than anything.

Even people who don't quite "understand" the act of kissing your own child on the lips showed their support for Hilary.

Finally, Hilary Duff spoke out against the backlash by posting a message addressing her haters on Twitter.

All in all, I don't think Hilary Duff is a creep and neither should you. It's quite clear that she was just happy to be having such a wonderful time with her only child at Disneyland.

That is the way she shows her affection and love for her child, and that's HER choice the same way it is YOUR choice not to show your love that way.

If her Instagram photo offended you, you'll probably want to stay away from the story about the San Diego mom who publicly voiced that she'd still breastfeed her two sons at age 18.

Now that's a different story...
