Bullfighting is already a controversial sport, and Francisco Rivera has not helped its cause in the past day. The Spanish bullfighter shared a photo of himself, his daughter, and a bull on Instagram that has a lot of people angry.

ITV translated the caption to "Carmen's debut, she is the fifth generation of my family to fight."

Rivera followed up his Instagram with a second photo that mirrors his image with one of him and his father.

"History repeats itself. The best legacy alive, feeling, purity, honor," the caption reads.

Rivera is mostly under fire in Spanish, though there are more than a few unhappy comments and Tweets in English about him.

Rivera has spoken out on Twitter about his photo's backlash and drawn comparisons with other sports.

Twitter translates this to "The variety of insults that I am receiving and wishes of death is impressive. What kind of person you want death to another?"

Given his attitude, Rivera will probably keep posting photos with his baby and a bull, and people will keep complaining.
