Paparazzi go to ridiculous lengths to get their shot: One man who dropped his toddler to get a shot of Nicole Richie has been called out by the star.

Richie posted these photos of the incident to Instagram with the note, "This paparazzi dragged his poor, sweet little girl on my plane from NYC to LA. As he ran her off the plane, he dropped her ON THE FLOOR of LAX as she laid there, crying her eyes out.. Just to get his shot. #Heartbreaking #FatherOfTheYear."

She then tweeted it out, saying, "Guess what home, I have a camera too."

TMZ points out we don't actually see the man dropping the child, but we do see her lying on the (probably not very clean) floor.
