A paparazzo who cursed at Suri Cruise and called her a "little brat" is drawing the ire of the 7-year-old's online fan base.
Suri, the daughter of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, was walking with her mother to their car in New York City on Thursday when a swarm of photographers and fans mobbed them. A visibly upset Suri whined at the paparazzi to "stop it" and "get out of the way!"
In a video obtained by Fishwrapper,
one of the photogs can be heard yelling, "Bye Suri, you little brat!"

"Whoa, whoa, whoa," responds another man in the crowd.
"Whoa, whoa, whoa what, man?" the offender snaps.
"When you're a father bro, it's a whole different thing," the defender says. "That's a whole different thing."
"She's a b—, a little brat kid," says the photog. "A little brat."
The verbal lashing aimed at Suri Cruise stirred up some strong reactions online.
"The guy calling a child a 'brat' and 'b—' is actually BEING the very words he is calling a 7-yr. (sic) old child who never asked for that kind of attention, by the way," one person commented on a YouTube video of the exchange. "I am glad someone voiced himself in defense of a child. People are rotten and getting worse by the day."
"Imagine what it's like from a child's POV, being bombarded by clicking noises, hundreds of blinding flashing lights, dozens of loud angry STRANGERS crowding, yelling & screaming at u!" another person posted. "How terrifying for a child. Who r they? (sic) What do they want? Why r they mad at me? R they going to kill me?"
