Sean Penn’s Son Spews Racist, Homophobic Slurs At Paparazzo

hopper pennSean Penn’s legendary difficulty with paparazzi might be genetic: His 19-year-old son, Hopper, is in hot water for losing his cool and calling an African-American photographer a n***er and a f***ot.

Hopper, the son of Sean and actress Robin Wright, was walking with his Academy-Award winning father when he shoved the shutterbug and spewed a stream of invective. According to TMZ, police came to investigate but the photographer didn’t press charges.

While it doesn’t excuse his behavior, the video on TMZ reveals that the photographer was goading Hopper to some extent before the celebutard shouted  “F*** you … you’re a f***ing f***ot … shut up you f***ing n***er.”

Back in 1987, Sean Penn was sentenced to two months in jail for assaulting a photographer—and got probation in 2009 for another paparazzi attack.

At least Hopper seems to be sorry about the whole sordid incident: “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 told TMZ. “I deeply regret my choice of words.”

      Apparently the apple doesn’t fall far from the crazy tree.

      And why would anyone care what Sean Penn’s son says?

      He can apologize all you want, but the fact remains that when he needed words to attack and insult somebody those were the two that came to his mind.

      @Cam: At least it’s a real apology, though, and not that “I’m sorry if anyone was offended” nonsense. You can’t really ask for anything more. For his real inner feelings about gay people, who cares.

      None of you were there, none of you witnessed it. I think everyone needs to shut the hell up and worry about their own lives.

      I just love how most media outlets conveniently left out the homophobic part in the titles of their reportage on this incident.

      This is the reason some black folks can never truly trust white people. Yes..I know it sounds ignorant. But these are the facts people. I’m telling you, that “N” word, is never too far from white folks lips child. Ain’t that right Craig!…

      On a side note, it’s too bad he didn’t inherit more in the facial features department from his mom’s side. Looks like he’s got a case of permanent stink face.

      Maybe he was just “rapping”. It just be street talk, not meant to offend nobody.

      It is a shame that he was brought up this way. If his dad had balls he would wash his mouth out with soap and demand a honest apology. After getting hammered he apologizes, sorry that does not cut it. If he immediately did it before it got all over the media then I could accept it. He is a selfish bigoted person. Guess he figures because he has led a very sheltered life that he is above other people. Sorry, you are a little piece of crap who needs to grow up.

      I would expect this sordid stuff from Meg Whitman’s son. This kid is trouble.

      If he were my son, I would have given him an ass-whooping right then and there, before making him apologize for being such a jerk. When I feel “treated like an animal,” I don’t resort to homophobic and racial slurs.

      Yeah his choice of words were inexcusable, and Daddy possibly told him off for it after, out of ear shot, but the friggen paparazzi should LEARN when to quit, douchebags.

      People are shocked that a 19-year-old is a dummy?

      Celebrities never live what they preach. They talk about tolerence and the enviornment, but the lives they live do not reflect that. Look at Leonardo DeCaprio taking a private plane, while preaching about global warming.
