Madame Tussauds‘ wax museum just unveiled its new wax figure of Nicki Minaj, and fans are upset that not only does it look nothing like her, some believe her skin tone is not right.
The wax figure was made public in Berlin, Germany and the images went viral online after man people were quick to point out that the wax figure looks nothing like the “Pink Friday” singer.
In fact, many people pointed out the figure looks more like Kourtney Kardashian than Nicki Minaj.
The museum took a shot at replicating Nicki’s classic look from her 2014 “Anaconda” music video. In the figure, she has on the long high ponytail and is wearing a gold chain bra.
Fans are upset, and took to social media to let their voice be heard…”I ain’t know Nicki Minaj was a white woman,” one person commented. Another added, “Why is she white.”
When asked on Instagram if anyone thought it looked like her, one person responded, “I’m guessing no she looks caucasian.”
“Who tf is that,” one fan said angrily.
For the record, according to one report, creating a Madame Tussauds wax figure takes over 350 hours of work. Sculptors look at paintings, photographs, and videos and if they can meet the person, they take measurements. They then create a life-size clay model of their subject and a plaster mold is made of the face and the head. Hot wax is then poured into the mold and oil paint is used to achieve the correct skin tone and features. They add hair, hand-painted acrylic eyeballs and clothing before the process is complete.
All that work and many fans think it seems they didn’t spend enough time doing it correctly, saying, “I just need them to get it right just one time.” One person said it this clear, “That’s a violation.” Another added, “WHY THEY DO THE QUEEN LIKE THIS.”
It’s not the first time the museum has missed the mark on a celebrity wax figure…Naomi Campbell, Ariana Grande, Rihanna, Beyonce, and Zac Efron’s have been called out for being a bit off.
