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.

I call bull**** on this story. Do you really think someone is going to go all the way out to visit his grave just to deface it? Neither do I. People need to stop throwing the word racist around, its quickly losing its power. especially when its a black person yelling it.

To desecrate someones grave shows the most utmost disrespect. Whoever did that has no class, no morals, no decency and forgive me but no religion in their life. The word 'disgusting' doesn't begin to describe how terrible this is. If you don't respect the dead, you can NOT respect the living. Rest in Peace, Mr. Michael.
