MJ Fans -- Dying to Clean Up Tomb Graffiti

7/14/2010 8:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

An MJ fan club is on a desperate mission to clean up the recent graffiti onslaught outside the King of Pop's tomb -- claiming a few bad apples could spoil everything for MJ's non-vandal followers.

The Official Michael Jackson Fans of Southern California
have extended an olive branch to Forest Lawn Cemetery -- where MJ is buried -- offering to clean up the recent wave of hidden vandalism outside the singer's tomb ... before the cemetery decides to ban MJ fans altogether.

A rep for the group -- which organizes a monthly pilgrimage to MJ's burial place -- tells TMZ, they want to "fix this mess" so FLC doesn't associate MJ's upstanding fans with a bunch of sharpie-wielding hoodlums.

As TMZ first reported, Forest Lawn is currently on red alert over the illegal doodles -- hunting down the artists responsible ... and threatening to ban any potential copycats for life.

No word if Forest Lawn will take the fan group up on their offer.

Yea, it's disrespectful even though the people meant well. Sometimes you just gotta use common sense people. I'm talkin' to the "fans" that did this.

But it really isn't a big deal. If it's a sharpie marker, there's a product called "goof off" that will take it right off. My nephew decided to color with permanent sharpie markers on my counter top. Goof off took right off. Had to scrub a little, but it came off. I'm sure there are a dozen products that will remove the marker.

Clean it up, tighten up security. 'Nough said...

To All The Loyal MJ Fans: Don't ever get discouraged by all the hate and evil you read about Michael on this site. It is the devil at work trying to destroy all the good and truth that is being said about Michael. Michael faced this hate and evil each and every day of his life. So I tell you, be of good courage and be strong. Continue to uplift Michael, never back down and never give in.

Amber : Everyone can understand you just want to shock, thanks.
Your comment is just cynical and childish. You just want to hurt people and you know it's wrong. Why would you hate someone so much ? ... Does it make you feel better ? So what then, let's say bad stuffs on Lohan, Hilton, Gibson and all of the famous people, so you can feel BIG ?! Cynical...

remember..JESUS walked the earth healing the sick,raising the dead, making the blind see. and preaching love and peace. for this he was lied on, persecuted,torchered, and crucified. MICHAEL went around the world visiting hospitals,orphanages, the sick and deprived. paying for kidneys, surgeries,bringing gifts,donating millions to improve these places and feeding the hungry. for this he was lied on persecuted, his reputation destroyed, amd mocked by the media. and all he also did was preach peace and love for each other our children and our planet. think people, think very hard with an open mind. what does this tell you.

Oh Jesus! These good intentioned f*cktards don't have the slightest clue about restoring historic structures that have been desecrated and vandalized. No thanks as*holes this isn't a job for a can of "graffiti cleaner" or a pressure washer and a steel bristle brush. I wish FL would just kick all of their stupid ignorant asses to the curb already!

First these stupid f*cktards on here cried bloody murder about not being let inside the mausoleum for the anniversary. They swore that it was bullsh*t that any of Mj's fans would ever do anything to desecrate the crypt or the mausoleum. There MJ's greatest fans after all and there all about peace and love and respect!

Yeah right... this vandalism is going to cost thousands of dollars for a professional restoration expert to repair.

THIS IS EXACTLY WHY THE JACKSON FAMILY DECIDED TO LAY HIM TO REST INSIDE A SECURED MAUSOLEUM. GET OVER IT LOSERS! IF THEY HADN'T HIS GRAVE WOULD BE TORN UP AND DESECRATE JUST LIKE JIM MORRISON'S ETC. ETC. ETC., WE'VE SEEN THIS KIND OF DISRESPECT FOR THE DEAD ALREADY. THE FACT IS HIS FANS NEVER KNEW THEIR IDOL AND DON'T HAVE THE SAME RESPECT THEY WOULD FOR A FRIEND OR FAMILY MEMBER. THEY WOULD NEVER DISRESPECT THEM THIS WAY BY DESECRATING THEIR GRAVE.

This self anointed fan club, "The Official Michael Jackson Fans of Southern California", making this offer as a completely disingenuous attempt to get close to his crypt and feel good about themselves.

The damage they would do to this historic building would be worse then the vandalism that's already occurred and add insult to injury. But since they made the offer i hope Forest Lawn sends them the bill for the restoration expert they're going to have to hire.

The cost for a professional restoration expert to repair the damage done will make their jaw drop, they won't pay it, and if called out on it publicly they'll whine mightily that it would of only cost them 50 bucks to clean it up and FL is trying to rip them or some nonsense... pathetic!
