An LA undertakers website has warned about homophobic body snatchers trawling famous Californian cemeteries.
The ease of attacks on famous gay women's remains is being blamed partly on cheap materials and poor coffin construction.
It's prompted a flurry of supportive messages from fans of celeb lesbians rumored to have placed advance orders for customized luxury caskets for the final send off.
"Sure hope you'll nail down Ellen DeGeneres firmly when the time comes, heheh," someone thought to be a pal of the 50-something US stand-up comedian/actress/talk show host posted.
"No problem, there," the website owner replied, "Ms DeGeneres will be getting the finest tongue and groove money can buy!"
