The French striker and his wife Erika Choperena recently announced the sex of their second child on social media.
The couple already have a two-year-old girl called Mia.
After Choperena uploaded a photo on Instagram of the moment her husband found out the good news, Rodriguez was quick to post how "happy" she was for the couple.
But she also wrote, translated from Spanish: "A little boy to control the future lovers of precious Mia and to keep order."
And these comments haven't gone down too well with some on social media.
Many commented that it was a "macho" comment to make, when translated from Spanish.
Another user wrote: "The man or the woman does not have to control anyone over their love relationships or make any order.
"Everyone will live their life. So yes, it is a macho comment."
And another Instagram user wasn't very happy, writing: "Sorry but women control themselves. In the 21st century you are writing such a stupid comment."
One went even further, posting: "You disgust me."
While most of the comments on the photo were congratulating the Atletico Madrid man and his wife on their happy news, many tagged in Rodriguez with their disagreement with her choice of words.
It has been viewed over 1.7m times on Instagram, and has over 186,000 likes.
Griezmann tied the knot with Erika at a secret ceremony in Toledo at the 11th century Palacio de Galiana in June 2017.
Erika gave birth to Mia Griezmann in April 2016.
