Tupac Actor — That’s NOT Real Tupac Autopsy Pic in Banned Music Video – TMZ.com

The ghost of Tupac Shakur is haunting Wyclef Jean … whose music video just got yanked from YouTube because someone thinks it features a grisly pic of ‘Pac’s autopsy — but TMZ has learned it’s just an impersonator with great makeup.

The scene in Wyclef’s “April Showers” video looks eerily similar to an infamous photo of Tupac’s corpse — partially cut open¬†during his autopsy — and published in Cathy Scott’s book, “The Killing of Tupac Shakur.”

Scott tells us she’s convinced the image in the video is the real deal — she’s the one who complained to YouTube — but Tupac impersonator¬†Richard Garcia tells TMZ he’s actually the stiff.

Garcia says he was hired to re-create the autopsy for the video’s anti-gun violence theme … and it required 8 hours with makeup artist Autumn McHugh — even though he only appears for a split second.

We told Scott about Garcia’s role — but she insists the image is TOO perfect, and must be the photo.

Our guess … the video will be back on YouTube soon.
