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.

@Compassion Absolutely. There are a hundred words he could have called the guy in regards to being a photog but to just blatantly attack his race like that was ridiculous and hateful. The fact that he outright said it towards a photog who wasn't even badgering him (like most photogs do) shows that that is how he truly feels. Hateful.

Lets see,

Negro= black in Spanish
*****= black in Latin

Are we still pretending like the "N-word" means something else then Black?

Once you put that word out there...there's no taking it back. If you mean it, you better have the balls to back it up. You don't just say something like that and expect people to forget...Hopper, you better take 5 steps back son.

Sean is very sick. The kid is in protective mode. What's with a grown man being a little beaaccch about being called a name. You just gave the kid power. I bet the pap already has a lawyer looking for some reason to sue.

The apple doesn't fall far from the tree! Though I'm surprised by the N-word comment as Sean clearly isn't racist.
