No, just read interviews with thingy Isaac who played the father & Capt. Hook in the latest adaptation of "Peter Pan" and said that he referred to the boy who plays Peter as a brat and the American media created a rumour that he detested the child after that IT WAS A JOKE?!

My guess would be that's because when a child is referred to as a "brat" here it means that the child is spoiled and/or badly behaved.
