Daniel Craig, star of James Bond, found himself in a different line of fire when Piers Morgan called him on Twitter for using a baby carrier, or what the personality of British television called "papoose".
"Oh 007 … is not it you too? !!! #papoose #emasaculatedbond", read the tweet.
Morgan's comment provoked a flood of responses from people who were upset by his comments.
Chris Evans, star of "Captain America", was among those who rebuked Morgan, who refused to apologize.
"You really have to be so unsure of your own masculinity to worry about how another man carries his son," Evans wrote. "Any man who wastes time quantifying masculinity is terrified inside."
Morgan, who is father of four own children between the ages of 6 and 25, did not back down, however, in his response to Evans, he simply said that "Captain America would not use a papoose."
Several other people intervened with disapproving assent to Morgan, as did many men who shared pictures of themselves dressing their babies in a baby carrier.
For his part, Morgan, who responded to many of the spikes directed at him, stood his ground, saying he has no problem with the men who look after their children; rather, you have a problem with the concept of baby carriers.
"Honestly, I can not understand how a grown man in 2018 can believe that carrying babies is a fascinating activity," says the author of "Daddy Doin & # 39; Work" and TODAY Parent Team contributor Doyin Richards. "Being a good father is truly the most masculine thing a man can do in his life, and it's easy to see how true is the number of men who are willing to invoke him for his ridiculously outmoded views of fatherhood.
"Unfortunately for him, this tweet had the opposite effect to that expected because men around the world are showing how proud they are to have a baby carrier, and let's face it: the woman of the planet would want to have a baby with a baby. so insecure that he thinks carrying babies is for ladybugs?
Morgan's anger did not necessarily have to come at Craig's expense, as many famous dads have been seen using baby carriers, either John Legend or John Stamos, who got angry for not using it.
Ryan Reynolds also made people nervous in 2015 when his wife Blake Lively posted an Instagram photo of him while holding his daughter James in a baby carrier. His method for doing so sparked a discussion about the correct way to use one. Suffice it to say that Morgan's opinion on the matter is probably quite clear.
