Sean Penn
's son handled a paparazzo in Beverly Hills today much the way his father used to ... violently ramming the photog -- and also calling the guy a "f***ot" and a "n***er."

19-year-old Hopper Penn was following his dad into a medical building when he got into the altercation with an African-American photographer (not TMZ's).

The nuclear exchange was all caught on tape ... Hopper gets up in the photog's face, pushing him, then says, "F*** you ... you're a f***ing f***ot ... shut up you f***ing n***er."

Cops happened to be nearby at the time and heard the commotion. Law enforcement sources tell us, officers asked what happened ... but the photog said it was just a verbal argument, and he didn't want to press charges.

Hopper tells TMZ his side of the story is ... “I was accosted by paparazzi and made to feel like an animal - threatened and under attack, but that does not condone my own actions." 

He adds, "I deeply regret my choice of words.”

FYI, Sean was 100% calm and cool in today's video.

It's been nearly four years since Sean's infamous kicking altercation with a photog. He was sentenced to three years probation stemming from that incident.

The Photographer intentionally stepped out into Penns son in order to draw a conflict. The Paparazzi need to stop instigating problems with celebrities because they want to sell the photos and respect these peoples privacy and allow them to move freely. Im sick of paparazzi trying to cause issues or block celebs in while they are trying to leave. Quit being jackals and be respectful. I would love for a celeb send a bunch of hired abnoxious photographers to stalk some of these guys for a month and see how they deal with it.

I'm guessing what you don't see is how this photog primed the kid for weeks/months waiting for a pay off.

How ignorant to be saying that to someone..Atleast he apologized.
I wonder if he was upset because he is walking into a medical building with his father , perhaps his father is sick ....that he would go off on someone like that

LOL! An "Obama son" killed a White kid in cold blood and you guys get upset at a word properly said to some parasitic paparazi.
