It’s not uncommon these days to find people arguing over one thing or another on the internet.
One could say that it was inevitable, since effectively pooling millions of people in the same place and giving them the freedom to express their thoughts and feelings, no matter how contrary they may be, was always going to generate hot debate.
Opinion-dividing pictures and videos are now considered the norm online, but that doesn’t mean they’re not worth visiting each time they crop up. We here at Newsner have covered all manner of such subjects in the past, so when we came across a picture taken of a father and his sleeping daughter on a plane journey – one, we might add, that has generated all manner of comments – we simply had to relay it…
The debate in question started when Reddit user u/therra123 took to the thread r/MadeMeSmile to post a sweet moment captured between a dad and his daughter.
The user had uploaded an image of a girl curled up on her aisle seat on a flight. Instead of her head resting on the armrest – a rather crude and unforgiving pillow, I’m sure all who have experience with them will agree – her father had placed his hand under her cheek instead.
The accompanying caption on Reddit reads: “This man kept his hand in this position for 45 minutes so his daughter could sleep well.”
Now, at this point we have to express our opinion that this doesn’t seem anything other than a dad performing his duties. The post was rightly tagged “wholesome moments”, but some Redditors didn’t feel the same way.
