Meet Suzie McClinton.

The 51-year-old South Florida woman was kicked out of the Indian River Mall after she tried to use her own camera to take pictures of her 9-month old granddaughter Alaina sitting on a mall Santa’s lap, has learned.

That's a 'ho-ho-ho' no-no it seems because even Santa doesn't allow freebies; the Santa Photo Experience kiosk charges $22.99 for the pictures.

When an employee told McClinton, "You can't take pictures," McClinton reportedly erupted into a foul-mouthed frenzy, causing three security guards to escort her off the property.

"Where is the real spirit of Christmas?" McClinton, who said she was recently laid off, told "How could you commercialize that?"
