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.

I heard no offensive language. The photog got less than what he deserved.

You're gonna shove a camera in someone's face and invade their space and expect them not to say anything.

It's funny how these photog do stuff on purpose to try to make celebrities mad and when the celeb actually does get mad, they are the bad people.

Get a real job photogs because if that was me you did that too, I would break ever camera in my sight.

This is low even for Penn standards. I didn't think it was possible to shame Sean Penn, but I think his vile son might have managed to accomplish that. What a disgrace.

It's OK, it's obviously a vast right wing conspiracy led by Bush to make this white elite racist bigot look like a white elite racist bigot.
