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.

Wow. Words like that don't come out of someone's mouth unless that's how they actually feel. Being upset doesn't give anyone the right to spew such hateful words.

I usually hate photogs but in this case Sean Penn's son was completely in the wrong. How do you just walk up and push someone? I could understand if he asked the photog to move or something first but to just walk up and push him like he did is a bit much. Then his racist ass topped it off with the N word. Who even uses that word in that manner anymore. He seems to be an angry young man. I guess temper is inherent.

after seeing the video, its obvious the photographer got EXACTLY what he wanted. Of course it's deeply revealing of the kid's private vocabulary and hair trigger temper (thanks dad) BUT the pap is an a$$hole who pushed this kid's buttons. What a douche.
