Fa****! Ni****!: Sean Pennâs Son Lashes Out at Photographer While With His Dad
It looks like Sean Penn may need to wash his 19-years-old sonâs mouth out with soap.
While following his father into a âmedical building,â as gossip site TMZ puts, Hopper Penn on Tuesday rammed into a black photographer in Beverly Hills, hurling gay insults and racial slurs.
âF**k you!â the younger Penn can be heard yelling at the paparazzo. âYouâre a f**king fa**ot!â
Responding to the seemingly unprovoked outburst, the photographer warned Hopper to watch it with the tough guy talk.
âShut up, you fu**ingni**er,â Hopper Penn replied.
Luckily for the Penn family, the photographer told nearby police that it was just a verbal altercation and that he wasnât going to press charges.
When asked about his choice words, the younger Penn defended himself: âI was accosted by paparazzi and made to feel like an animal â threatened and under attack, but that does not condone my own actions.â
âI deeply regret my choice of words,â he adds.
This isnât 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.
