Sean Penn - Sean Penn's Son Speaks Of Regret After Paparazzo Outburst

Sean Penn's son Hopper has spoken of his regret after he allegedly used racist and homophobic slurs during an altercation with a photographer in Los Angeles on Tuesday (26Mar13).

The Mystic River star's 19-year-old son with actress Robin Wright became embroiled in a bust-up with a paparazzo as he and his famous father entered an office building in Beverly Hills.

In video footage of the fight, obtained by Tmz.com, Hopper is purportedly shown pushing past the snapper, before saying, "F**k you... you're a f**king f**got... shut up you f**king n**ger."

Police were alerted to the incident, but all parties involved decided not to take the matter any further.

However, after the video footage hit the web, Hopper told Tmz that he regretted his outburst, but insists he was "accosted" by the snapper. He says, "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."
