Yes, it's wrecked, probably by a bad landing from a jump.
However, BMX forks are readily available from various sources, and they're fairly generic.

Edit: On looking closer at the photo, it doesn't look like jump damage. This bike was probably in a head on crash, which bent the fork back
severely. Then somebody turned the fork around backwards to make it rideable after a fashion.
