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.

How come this Black Paparazzi is on the street why is his black ass not behind bar. The paparazzi are so good at screaming don't touch me or my equipment. Why are they in the face of other people when the f12k Paparazzi are so righteous about one God give right. A good kick to the ball is the answer to the pap.

Wow ...    

That is a crying shame. A person doesn't resort to those words unless it is in their vocabulary. I can even understand getting frustrated with the paps, but umm...no excuse for that! It also reveals his thoughts about gays and blacks. Not cool!!!

Man all you judging nobody's, imagine people with cameras in your face all day everyday trying to get a rise out of you.. There is not a single person in the world that wouldn't blow up on a off day... Unfortunately he said the two words everyone in history have used but will never admit. And on top of that imagine going with your sick parent to the doctors and having a aggressive photog rush them WHAT WOULD YOU DO?

With a name like Hopper you shouldn't be calling anyone names. Ha jk! In all seriousness, I would prob say things I didn't mean out of anger if someone was in my face.

What an' effin' a-hole! Even in Alabama and Mississippi racists restrain themselves more than this dog! I hope his career riding daddy's coat tails runs into a brick wall! And no, I'm not black.
