It looks like Sean Penn may need to wash his 19-years-old son’s mouth out with soap.
While following his father into a “medical building,” as gossip site TMZ puts, Hopper Penn on Tuesday rammed into a black photographer in Beverly Hills, hurling gay insults and racial slurs.
“F**k you!” the younger Penn can be heard yelling at the paparazzo. “You’re a f**king fa**ot!”
Responding to the seemingly unprovoked outburst, the photographer warned Hopper to watch it with the tough guy talk.
“Shut up, you fu**ing ni**er,” Hopper Penn replied.
Luckily for the Penn family, the photographer told nearby police that it was just a verbal altercation and that he wasn’t going to press charges.
When asked about his choice words, the younger Penn defended himself: “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,” he adds.
This isn’t the time that a member of the Penn clan has had a nasty run-in what a photographer. You may recall that noted Hugo Chavez fanboy Sean Penn had to serve three years probation after he assaulted a photographer nearly four years ago.
