David Foster’s latest post to social media hit the wrong note with some of his fans.
On Tuesday, the 72-year-old musician took to Instagram to share a photo of his wife, Katharine McPhee, sunbathing in a bikini. Foster praised the 37-year-old singer for looking fit and toned since welcoming their first child together, Rennie, in February 2021.
“What baby!” he captioned the photo for his more than 300,000 followers.
Unfortunately, Foster’s remark quickly sparked a debate between commenters. Many found the gesture to be “out of touch” and accused him of “openly objectifying” his wife.
“I am sure she worked hard to get back in shape but why does this have to be a public comment or post?” one user commented. “It does more damage than good in my opinion!”
“Sometimes it’s very obvious that you’re from another era,'” someone else wrote, referencing Foster’s age.
“There is so much wrong in this caption,” someone chimed in.
