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.

This racist homophobic brat is the child of BOTH Sean Penn and Robin Wright. Now we know what Penn and Wright really think about black people and gays because a child learns this from his parents.

I had been fans of both Sean Penn and Robin Wright for decades...until today. Now that I know that they have raised their children to be racist, homophobic, and violent, I will never go to another Sean Penn or Robin Wright movie. They should release a statement apologizing for their horrible child and for being complete failures as parents.

For being an adult that pap didnt act any better by not shutting up and running it in the ground AFTER he was out of the line of danger. Im blk also yet his mouth was more irritating to me. Ha! I was only watching the video so imagine how everyone else there felt. No wonder the police caught all the disturbance AFTER the kid was in the bldg dam near gone

Bully people all day, film them, talk ****. Then get butthurt when you're called a name. "OH WOOORD???" Sounds like a punk. That's why he's filming people walking home instead of working a regular job like a regular (white) man. POS.

Celebrity photogs are blood-sucking leeches. Actors are far worse. Sean should be very proud....like father, like son. Friends say he is absolutely beaming since the incident. His only regret, and that of his son, is that he said the N word to a dark-skinned photog leech. Had it been a light-skinned photog leech, no remorse of any kind, and this incident would not even be news. Who cares what happens to a white, right? Sean taught his son well on the use of Hellyweed's all-time favorite gap filler and conversational noun, verb and adjective -- F U * K. Civility and maturity on full display. Uh huh.

but Sean and his son are not racists...oh, no...they're liberals! And we know that liberals cannot be racists even though they are the ones who formed the KKK and wanted to keep them from voting.

The apple doesn't fall far from the tree. No surprise here. Yet the MSM covers these buffoons concerning their political views as though their opinions are important??? Idiots all.

Give the Penn family a break. They're still in mourning and distraught over the death of Dictator Chavez. They aren't thinking straight.

A douche is a douche no matter what. He's probably very distraught over the Chavez death. There goes his subsidized Citgo card. I'd me mad too if I had to pay full price at the pump. Oh wait...

Let's see if the Sharpton's, Jackson's, The Black Panther's come out of their hole in protest. I bet not. Lil Penn said he was sorry and that will be good enough.
Now....If it was anyone on the right. There would be liberal protests, riots, hollywood protests, congressional hearings, Presidential briefings.

The son is a jerk just like his father, but we have a constitutionally protected right to free speech here in America and no amount of Communist indoctrination about political correctness is going to force any strong willed person to permit an obnoxious overly aggressive negro to walk all over him without at least calling a spade a spade! If the spoiled and pampered darkie couldn't handle being verbally abused, then he needs to find a desk job.
