A number of Minaj fans (and people with eyesight in general) have noted that the wax interpretation of the rapper is a little wonky in the face, significantly less plump in the backside and noticeable lighter in skin colour.
Based on a still of Minaj from the "Anaconda" video, the statue sees Minaj on all fours, wearing a chainmail bikini top and black bottoms — but the outfit seems to be the only thing Twitter isn't complaining about.
See some of the harsh reactions to the unfortunate sculpture fail below.
UPDATE (1/8, 2 p.m. EST): Just an FYI that the figure actually debuted back in 2015, and it was even approved by Minaj herself. Learn more here.
The chain of museums has come under fire before. In 2017, it unveiled a Beyoncé statue that many slammed as white-washed.
Listen, I'm not even die hard Nicki Minaj fan but she can RAP & ppl don't give her talent the credit it deserves. That wax figure Madame Tussaud's put out…that's not Onika Maraj. I'm so sorry. Does google not exist? They looked at that mess & said "yh, we got it". No, you don't. pic.twitter.com/VtQmLYgy0D— Zu (@ghetto004) January 7, 2020
