Hopper Penn, Son of Sean, Drops Racial, Anti-Gay Slurs on Photographer

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Sean Penn's son handled a paparazzi guy in Beverly Hills Tuesday about as badly as anyone ever has, ramming him and calling him a "f***ot" and a "n***er."

Hopper Penn, 19, was following his famous dad into a medical building yesterday when he got into an altercation with an African-American photographer.

Sean Penn kept his head down and walked in without a word.

Hopper followed moments later, shoved the guy pretty much out of the blue and began yelling, "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 this.

Law enforcement sources told TMZ that the celebrity news photographer said it was just a verbal dispute, and he didn't want to press charges.

Hopper Penn later said, “I was accosted by paparazzi and made to feel like an animal, threatened and under attack, but that does not condone my own actions."

"I deeply regret my choice of words.”

Sean Penn, who was sentenced to three years probation for kicking a photographer in '09, clearly learned his lesson ... one he might want to pass along.

Sean Penn can't punch himself out of a paper bag.
God forbid that Sean and Junior should ever have to face real opponents. In the fantasy world of Hollywood, Sean and Hopper can pretend to be tough guys. The media photographers are not in a position to defend themselves. Penn and Son know that they are safe and easy targets.

He got that attitude from his father

Sean Penn's son is an idiot who has embaressed his father! He is a psycho who picks on weaker people! Let him try saying that in jail to one of the gays that's Black and weighs 250lbs! He'll come out singing like a canary and smelling like manure!

The photographer was a better person by not pressing charges, but after hearing this piece of crap's "excuse" I'd be the first one at the police station pressing charges, for the principle alone!

Instead of trying to save Haiti, Sean should focus on teaching his son the basics of human decency.
Hopefully they were on their way into the building to see a shrink...sounds like coke rage...
