Michael Clarke Duncan’s Gravestone Vandalized

By  | 

HipHollywood has learned that the gravestone of Michael Clarke Duncan was vandalized.

A family friend of the late actor told TMZ that she went to visit Forest Lawn Cemetery where Duncan was buried, and that’s when she noticed a cartoonish black figure attached to the center of the tomb. The friend was led to believe that drawing was that of “Sambo,” a racial term used to describe a black person.

The friend filed a vandalism report with the Los Angeles Police Department who is currently investigating. The situation reportedly could be considered a hate crime, and the image on the tomb was taken down immediately.

Duncan died on September 3 of last year after complications following a heart attack. The Oscar nominated actor was 54-years-old.
