Some people just won't let Michael Clarke Duncan rest in peace. 

The late actor's grave has been vandalized with racist graffiti, a source tells TMZ. A family friend who stopped by the Forest Lawn Cemetary in the Hollywood Hills to pay his respects to Duncan noticed a sticker of a cartoon in Black face stuck on Clarke's tombstone. The friend believes the sticker depicts Sambo, a racist depiction of a Black person and long considered a racial slur. 

Duncan's family has called the LAPD to investigate and the incident may be considered a hate crime. The hurtful sticker has been removed by law enforcement. 

The Green Mile actor passed away last year, at the age of 54, of complications following a heart attack. His funeral was attended by many of his show business colleagues, including Tom Hanks, Jay Leno and Holly Robinson Peete.

Hopefully the culprit will be brought to justice soon and the Oscar winner's family can move forward.
