WATCH: Photog Calls Suri Cruise a ‘Little Brat’

Jul 12 2013, 8:28pm CDT | by

Ray Tamarra/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Paparazzi staked out in front of Katie Holmescar is a common sight, but this time, many would say they crossed a line with 7-year-old Suri Cruise, prompting a passionate plea from the little girl.

“We’re trying to get to the car! Stop it!” she shouted earlier this week, tightly gripping her mom’s hand after leaving the Trump International building in New York City.

“Bye Suri, you little brat!” one paparazzo shouted back as the little girl was getting into her black SUV.

And then someone in the crowd defended her.

“Whoa, whoa, whoa,” said one man standing up for Suri.

“Whoa, whoa, whoa, what, man?” the paparazzo asked.

“When you’re a father, bro, it’s a whole different thing,” the man replied.

“A little brat kid, a little brat,” the paparazzo insisted.

“When you see a video as disturbing as this, you understand why celebs fight so hard, not only to protect themselves but to protect their kids,” said ABC News consultant Howard Bragman of Reputation.com. “These are little kids. They should be off limits.”

“Often times people think that because a parent has decided to be a celebrity that the child is fair game,” Stacy Kaiser, a licensed psychotherapist, explained. “Children need to be children, and they can be deeply damaged with something as simple as paparazzi yelling a bad word at them.”

Suri has spent the better part of her life in a fishbowl with swarming photographers peering through the glass.  It seems so long as their parents are hot in Hollywood, there will likely always be flashbulbs on star kids. But now, A-list parents are fighting back.

Celebrity moms like Sarah Jessica Parker, Salma Hayek and Julia Roberts have butted heads with the paparazzi over their children.

In June, Halle Berry, who has publicly sparred with photographers trying to get a shot of her 5-year-old daughter, Nahla, spoke out in front of California lawmakers backing a bill to protect star kids from the paparazzi.

“My daughter doesn’t want to go to school because she knows ‘the men’ are watching for her,” the actress told the Assembly Committee on Public Safety at the California state Capitol in Sacramento. “They jump out of the bushes and from behind cars and who knows where else, besieging these children just to get a photo.”

She added: “I have to yell ‘She’s a child. Leave my child alone. Leave my child alone.’ We get into the car, and my daughter is now sobbing, and she says to me, ‘Are they going to kill us? Are they going to kill us?’”

In Europe, there are specific restrictions against photographing kids without the parent’s consent, but in the United States, not so much.

Berry, who is expecting a child with boyfriend Olivier Martinez, said she was speaking in favor of the anti-harassment bill by Sen. Kevin de Leon, D-Los Angeles, as a “mother of a daughter and the baby boy in my belly.”

She said she understood and respected the media’s rights.

“We have a love-hate relationship. I need them. They need me. But this bill would not infringe on their rights,” she said, adding that the bill, if passed, would change her life and the lives of her children./>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>
