No matter how much of a good parent you are, it seems like your efforts are never enough in the eyes of strangers on the internet.
Mothers and fathers are constantly criticized for either not doing enough or for doing too much for their children. This type of backlash is even worse for celebrities.
There isn't a week that goes by without a celebrity parent being subjected to some form of online shaming over their parenting choices and skills.
While some people argue that their comments are coming from a good place, the same can't be said about host Piers Morgan's recent criticism of actor Daniel Craig holding his newborn in a baby carrier.
The James Bond star and his wife, actress Rachel Weisz, 48, welcomed their first child together just a little over a month ago, and the doting dad has since been spotted on multiple occasions with his baby girl.
The 50-year-old actor was recently photographed wearing a type of baby carrier, also known as a papoose, and it seemed like Morgan took an issue with it.
The Good Morning Britain host and former America's Got Talent judge took to twitter to share his opinion on Craig's choice to wear a carrier, calling the father an "emasculated Bond."
"Oh 007.. not you as well?!!! #papoose #emasculatedBond," Morgan wrote in the caption of the aforementioned photo.
Piers, who is no stranger to controversy, angered a lot of people with his remarks and it was met with instant backlash.
I don't see a fictionalised character from a series of books and films, I see an actor father looking after his kid.... doesn't get more masculine than that. Good for Daniel.— Adam White (@ad8m) October 16, 2018
Real men care for their offspring. Emasculated? Far from it.— Jennifer Granholm (@JenGranholm) October 16, 2018
take it from this woman - there's nothing more attractive in a man than the capacity to nurture, be it wife or children!— ingeborg oppenheimer (@ingeoppenheimer) October 16, 2018
Masculinity and childcare are synonymous! I don’t see emasculation @piersmorgan - I see a healthy, positive expression of parenthood in a world where we strive towards gender equality in the workforce and domestic spheres. Your comment is a perfect example of toxic masculinity— Jessica Riddell (@DrJRiddell) October 16, 2018
He LITERALLY looks like an active, involved, protective, and caring father. THAT'S what you want and need in a dad! Sorry you can't relate.— Rhonda (@phlygerl) October 16, 2018
Many fathers replied to Morgan's comments by sharing photos of themselves proudly holding their babies in carriers.
This is absolutely one of my favorite pictures. Solomon Nesta, my son loved his carrier. We bonded may a day on our walks through my neighborhood. He gets to explore in the safe of daddy arms. #PiersMorgan #papoose? #emasculatedBond = #DanielCraig, Good Daddy. pic.twitter.com/NUMFzlNkGm— Kingsley A.

Morgan unconvincing tried to clarify that the point he was trying to make was that carrying a child isn't what's emasculating, the issue is that Craig is using a carrier to assist him.
A few celebrities, including actor Chris Evans, eventually joined the discussion and called out Morgan for his ridiculous stance.
"You really have to be so uncertain of your own masculinity to concern yourself with how another man carries his child," the Captain America star tweeted. "Any man who wastes time quantifying masculinity is terrified on the inside."
Despite all the adorable photos and support for papooses, Morgan failed to change his mind.
"I just hate papooses. I know the shrieking Twitter mob is trying to bully me into liking them - but they will fail in their mission," he wrote.
Morgan even tried to get President Donald Trump in on the the "Papoose-gate" fiasco, but the Chief-in-Commander has more important debates to participate in and has yet to respond.
The British presenter later posted a photo of himself in a tux and suggested that perhaps he should be cast as the next James Bond.
One thing’s clear after tonight’s ferocious Papoose-gate debate: we need a new James Bond.— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) October 15, 2018
A 007 who looks sharp in a tux & wouldn’t be seen dead in a papoose.... pic.twitter.com/2u4jsATSfS
Morgan has a six-year-old daughter with his wife Celia Walden, and three kids, sons Spencer, 25, Stanley, 21 and Albert, 17, from his previous marriage to Marion Shalloe.
It's safe to assume that he never carried his children in a papoose.
