Michael Clarke Duncan's Tomb

VANDALIZED BY RACIST

... Family Says

EXCLUSIVE

0524-michael-clark-duncan-tmzSome racist jerk has desecrated Michael Clark Duncan's grave ... this according to a Duncan family rep, who tells TMZ a vandalism report has already been filed with the police.

We're told ... a family friend stopped by Forest Lawn Cemetery in the Hollywood Hills to deliver flowers to the spot where MCD was interred in Sept. 2012 ... when she noticed a figure of a cartoonish black face had been attached to the center of MCD's tomb.

The friend believes the black face is an image of "Sambo" -- a character that has long been considered an offensive and racist depiction of a black person.

MCD's friends and family were shocked by the discovery -- wondering what kind of lowlife would desecrate Michael's final resting spot.

We're told the family contacted the LAPD -- and were told the incident could be considered a hate crime. Cops are currently investigating the situation. 

The family tells us ... Forest Lawn immediately removed the "Sambo" from MCD's tomb -- but they won't be satisfied until they find out who violated the tomb.

You know. I am beginning to see a pattern. TMZ puts out this provocative misinformation to stir up these racist tirades and pain invoked responses. Really nasty folks at TMZ.

It looks like a dime size smiley face, (yes black) with purple eyes, an orange happy mouth and yellow dot nose! Racism? I don't think so. Good God people, lighten up a bit!

If looks like the head of Mr. Bill from SNL fame. Maybe Duncan was a fan of Mr. Bill.

It's called a rock smiley. It's a sweet thing. It is placed there with love. It has nothing to do with racism.

10 to 1 Omareptile did this so she can pretend to be a victim of racism.

She's accused four former mangers/employers of racism and taken at least one settlement on the issue.

Rumor has it she's broke and looking for any source of funds, even a 'racism' settlement.

This is not the Little Black Sambo pictured in the book when I was young. It is something totally different. I think the family might be mistaken about this.
