Intent on carrying on the douchebag lineage, Sean Penn’s son, Hopper, 19, was following his dad into a medical building when he pushed a black photographer, called him a “fa**ot” and then a “f*cking ni**er.” Of course, he said the last two things when he was safely inside the building where the photographer couldn’t follow.
Nearby cops asked what happened. The photog said it was just a verbal argument and didn’t want to press charges.
Hopper went straight to daddy’s publicist who told him to apologize. Hopper 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.” Apparently Hopper also inherited his dad’s sense of hyperbole.
The incident was caught on film (you can check it out at the link). You can clearly see how Hopper’s back was against the wall and how he was under siege and that every minute of his walk down that wide open street into that medical building was a fight for survival. He’s so brave.
