Suri Cruise was verbally assaulted by a photographer on Tuesday (09Jul13) as she made her way to her mother Katie Holmes' car.
The seven year old was clinging to a classmate and her former Dawson's Creek star mum when they were swarmed by the paparazzi in New York City.
In video footage of the incident posted online, the exasperated little girl is featured shouting, "We're trying to get in the car! Stop it! Get out of the way!"
But when Suri finally hopped into the waiting vehicle, a male snapper yelled out, "Bye, Suri, you little brat!"
The unidentified man was immediately scolded by a fellow photographer for being so rude to the youngster, but he refused to express remorse for his actions, responding, "I don't care... A little brat kid."
