Like father, like son.

Sean Penn's extreme dislike for paparazzi has rubbed off on his son Hopper.

The 19-year-old was caught on video Tuesday shouting racist and homophobic slurs at a Los Angeles photographer while with poppa Penn. And now RumorFix can confirm that the paparazzo, Vladimir Labissiere, is pressing charges against the famous spawn.

In an interview with, the pap says he realized Hopper is a "little kid" so he kept his cool and did not retaliate. Although Labissiere originally said he would not press charges, it appears he has changed his mind because he wants to teach the out-of-line teen a lesson.

"I am going to go to the police station and put in the paperwork. I don’t want him to feel like this is normal behavior and it’s OK to do this, like it’s not cool,” he said.

Although he thinks Hopper Penn is a racist, the photographer says he still accepts his apology.
