michael clarke duncan grave vandalized sambo Michael Clarke Duncan's grave vandalized with 'Sambo' face, say family membersFamily members of late actor Michael Clarke Duncan tell TMZ that the grave site where Duncan was laid to rest has been vandalized by an unknown person and that a report has been filed with the police.

Reportedly, a family friend was visiting the tomb at Forest Lawn Cemetery in Hollywood to put flowers on Duncan’s grave when she noticed a cartoon-like black face had been placed on the front of the tomb (pictured above).

This family friend says the image is of “Sambo,” a racist term that stems from the 1899 book “The Story of Little Black Sambo.” The family has contacted the Los Angeles Police Department, who said the incident may be considered a hate crime. The LAPD is currently investigating.
