A man called Suri Cruise "a little brat" and "b***h" when she was stepping out of a Manhattan building with her mother Katie Holmes and another girl. As the trio walked out the door, eager autograph seekers and paparazzi immediately surrounded them.
In a video obtained by Cesar Pena of 247paps.tv, Suri, Katie and the girl were shown walking to a waiting car, when Tom Cruise's daughter got upset and yelled at the photographers and fans, "We're trying to get in the car. Stop it!" Suri shrieked, "Get out of the way," when she reached the SUV's door.
Photographers and fans were saying goodbye to Suri and said that they loved her, but a man, who was described by Pena as a "guy who waits for celebrities [to get] their autographs to sell them on eBay," cursed at the 7-year-old girl. "Bye, Suri, you little brat," the man said.
Pena can be heard saying, "Whoa, whoa, whoa." The fan retorted, "Whoa, whoa, whoa, what?" to which Pena answered, "When you're a father, bro, it's a whole different thing. It's a whole different thing." The fan answered, "I don't care... She's a b*tch... A little brat kid. A little brat."
Pena told Us Weekly that he was offended because he has a little daughter. The photographer said that after the incident, "I had to take a step back, because I didn't want things to escalate. We try our best to protect Suri. Of course we take pictures of her, but we always keep our distance... I always try to protect any of the celebrities I work on." He added that the offender was "in Suri's face."
Katie did not react to the name-calling. Sharon Osbourne commented on the incident later in a Thursday episode of "The Talk", "How dare anyone say that to any child!?"
