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.

Drizzz.    

Who gives a flying f(u)ck, surely there are more pressing matters like who Bieber is blowing to apologise for his behaviour or if period head is preparing to be sodomised in jail?

Classy guy. He only regrets his choice of words because there's a video.

Another celebrity kid thinking they say what they want, at least we know he and most likely his family don't like african american people. My goodness, who in the hell still say ni**er. Idiot!

Penn's kid is a racist ass. I'm glad I don't know him.

That said... some papps say horrid stuff and do rude stuff to stars and their kids hoping to provoke someone into a reaction shot they can sell to the media. But it always amazes me how, when the tables are turned, those papps always look so stunned, shocked and surprised by the violent responses they sometimes get. Papps need to give people space without blocking or hindering them. We need a papps law preventing them from getting up close and personal. A fifty foot distance would work. All those papps have enormous zoom lenses anyway, no need to be so close. Back off.
