Hopper Penn yelled out a few slurs as he got into a heated altercation with a cameraman in Beverly Hills Tuesday.
A set of serious words were exchanged to the paparazzi who got too close as the father-son duo headed into a Beverly Hills building.
When a reporter followed Hopper with a camera, who was also with his father Sean Penn, the 19-year-old started shouting slurs while his father calmly ignored the reporters with his head down.
However, his son Hopper, on the other hand, pushed the videographer and then unleashed an angry rant, which included both F-bombs and the N-bomb.
Unfortunately for Hopper, the entire incident was caught on video, natch, including the paparazzo yelling to ask the elder Penn if he taught his son to use such language. When Hopper calls the videographer a “(expletive) N-word,” the black paparazzo responds incredulously, “Oh word?!”
Hopper later apologized via a statement to TMZ: “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.”
Police officers nearby heard the commotion and asked the paparazzo what happened, but he decided not to press charges. No word yet from Hopper’s dad about the startling incident.
Just another day for the Penn family in Hollywood.
