Like hundreds of thousands of people around the world, TV personality and singer David Campbell attended a Women’s March protesting Donald Trump.

But his decision to take his children and the slogans on their t-shirts has earned him some criticism on social media.

So, what has some people so fired up?

Well, Campbell’s two-year-old twins Betty and Billy wore t-shirts with the slogans “Crush the patriarchy” and “Feminism is for everyone” at yesterday’s rally in Sydney.

“Here is Betty and Billy yesterday showing their support for #WomensMarch” Campbell wrote on Twitter with a photo of his daughter and son.

It prompted a few critical comments, including this one from one Twitter user.

“Cute kids but two year olds used as political pawns? Sad,” he wrote.

As you would expect, most people who expressed they were participating in the Women’s March on social media copped some flack.

Not everyone is critical though.

Campbell’s Twitter post was flooded with comments of support from his fans.

“So happy to see your girls out there supporting #WomensMarch,” one Twitter user wrote.

“This is so wonderful and fills me with hope,” another wrote.

Comedienne Magda Szubanski, who is the twin’s godmother took to Instagram to share a photo of Betty in her “Crush the patriarchy” shirt.

“I couldn’t be at the #womensmarch today but here is my heavenly god daughter Betty representing,” she wrote.

“And yes, I do know she is a Mini-Me.”

What do you think about this? Should David Campbell have dressed his daughters up for the Women’s March?

    David Campbell you are a moron looking for cheap publicity you have some very strange ideas just stick to singing.

      Ian Gould it takes only good people to do nothing for fascism to be on the rise. I think it’s already here in our Australian government. The last time I looked Australia was still a democracy with all entitled to an opinion, whether you agree with it or not. From your comment I would say you are part of the problem, not part of the solution. So take a Bex, lie down and chill out.

      David Campbell is just looking for cheap publicity. If you look at the other celebs turning up at these “marches” they are washed up old old hags. Just as David Campbell is! A skirt would suit him.

      • Diandra  

        Mareela….you have it all back to front……

    • Patricia  

      just teaching his children from an early age…obviously something your parents did not do….you are the moron

  2. DL Wright  

    Good on you David. You are bring your daughters up to see the world as it should be seen. Equality.

  3. Denise fitzgibbins  

    Feminism isn’t for everyone at all. Feminism just wants to swap patriarchy with matriarchy, not equality.

    • Louise Carrigg  

      Why isn’t feminism for all Denise?

  4. Heather Meldrum  

    just wondering if no one knew they where your children would they have taken the attention away from what the occasion was for?

  5. June  

    Liked you David Campbell, not anymore, ridiculous getting 2 year olds involved.

    • Diandra  

      Very much agree with your comment June.

  6. John McInerney  

    Good for David. We should applaud involving children in politics – the future of the world will be in their hands.

  7. Janice  

    They are his children his responsibility if he thought it was safe why not. It is no one else’s business but his own.

  8. Judith Downie  

    As long as David continues to explain to his children the fores and against in everything, and they understand why they make the decisions they make. My question is, why are so many upset about such a small thing, but I see no evidence of anyone of you trying to stop the Government making an ass of itself regarding selling our country and allowing refugees more say than Australian born residents.
    I am very worried about what Mr Trump is going to do. he is a loose cannon.
    I am very worried about the Homeless in Australia.
    I am very worried that our farmers are doing it so tough, that it is getting harder and harder to buy AUSTRALIAN MADE AND GROWN food.

    Oh for god sake, can’t stand the “do gooders” of this world, so what if his kids were at the march, none of anyones business, people are allowed to show their support for or to anything they want. We live in a free country. Everyone should just look after their own and not criticize others.

      the “do gooders” of this world have a habit of making comments about things they no nothing about

  10. Janece Mather  

    Well done Campbell family. Supporting equality will leave your children with a good attitude towards women.

  11. Glenys Howard  

    Well done Campbell family. We live in a democracy. This father is a thinking, sensitive, loving person. If he wishes to bring his children up sharing his values, why shouldn’t he? The stupidity of some people is unbelievable.

    • Diandra  

      Hehhhh……the stupidity of some IS unbelievable. Hhhmmmm…….

      • Irene  

        I cannot see any stupidity in that! We live in a democratic country! Amen
