Fans go to extreme lengths to snap photos of their idols — but what David Beckham saw one admirer do is the most shocking yet.
As one woman attempted to take his photo while driving a motorcycle, the former soccer pro felt the need to photograph her when he saw the fan had a baby on her lap. The young child does not appear to be strapped in and looks as if he/she is about to fall off the vehicle. Both the woman and baby were not wearing helmets.
He posted the image on Facebook.
“I’m all for fans taking a picture but not sure this is the safest way to do it!” the father-of-four captioned the pic, which has caused outrage.
The 39-year-old athlete was on tour in Asia to promote Haig Club, his new line of whiskey, when this took place.
The picture has since gone viral and even caught the attention of the chief of traffic police who says the woman broke the law.
“The woman could face a fine of 300,000 dong (around $14) for not wearing a helmet and for using a mobile phone while driving,” he was quoted as saying in ‘Phap Luat’, a local newspaper.
Several people have commented on his post, which has garnered more than 7,000 shares and 18,500 comments since he published it on Nov. 13.
