michael clarke duncan’s grave vandalized by racists
May 24, 2013
A family friend was visiting the grave of Michael Clarke Duncan when she noticed a figure of a cartoonish black face attached to the center of his tome, TMZ reports.
The unidentified friend says she stopped by Forest Lawn Cemetery in Hollywood Hills, Calif., to deliver flowers where his body was interred in September of 2012 when she noticed a Sambo-looking figure.
When Duncan’s family notified the cemetery, the offensive “Sambo” figure was immediately removed. The family also contacted the Los Angeles Police Department; the incident could be considered a hate crime, law enforcement sources told TMZ. The case is currently under investigation. The family says it were shocked that someone would stoop so low as to deface the actor’s grave and want the perpetrator prosecuted.
