According to TMZ, a horrific scene has taken place at Pop Smoke’s final resting place. The media outlet shared images obtained earlier today that show Pop Smoke’s gravesite on the outer mausoleum destroyed. Vandals allegedly cracked and broke the marble plaque listing his full name Bashar Barakah Jackson.
The alleged disrespect took place at Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn, New York. This is reportedly where Pop Smoke was buried following his tragic death in 2020.
As previously reported, Pop Smoke was killed in his rental home during a robbery in February 2020. Masked men reportedly entered the home at 4:30 a.m. in Los Angeles and fired multiple shots that struck Pop Smoke. The rapper was pronounced deceased after being transported to Cedars- Sinai Medical Center in West Hollywood.
According to TMZ’s eyewitness, the scene near the violate gravesite was a “complete mess.” There were burned and discarded items, including flowers, in front of the broken plaque.
It’s unclear whether Pop Smoke’s casket remains inside or untouched. However, drag marks were allegedly found on the ground in front of the holding place. Apparently, what seems to be a concrete slab and a black, rectangular object was also found across from the mausoleum. TMZ shared that the “door-looking thing” appears to be a part of the grave and used for separating Pop Smoke’s body from the one above him.
TMZ reported that the gravesite was cleaned up following security being notified of the scene. The broken plaque was also reportedly replaced with a blank slab and a caution tape was placed around the area.
There’s no word yet from the family about the scene. It’s also unclear whether the plaque will be replaced or who will foot the bill if and when it’s replaced.
This is a developing story.
