TV personality Piers Morgan took to Twitter to criticize actor Daniel Craig for … being a father? That left other dads on social media shaken and stirred.

The talking head shared a photo on Monday of Craig strolling along with his infant child strapped to his chest in a polka-dotted carrier alongside a caption that included “#emasculatedBond.”

But Morgan appeared to be in the vast minority with his seemingly sexist scrutiny of the James Bond actor, drawing the ire of dads and their supporters across the Internet. The Dictionary.com official Twitter account stepped in as well and advised Morgan that his usage of the word was incorrect.

“We double checked the definition of emasculate,” the site’s note reads. “There’s nothing about being a load-sharing father to be found there.”
