New Nicki Minaj Madame Tussauds Waxwork Branded 'Disrespectful'

New Nicki Minaj Madame Tussauds Waxwork Branded 'Disrespectful'

Madame Tussauds may be known for its hyper-realistic, lifelike waxwork models, but it seems sometimes it doesn't get things quite right.

The Berlin branch of the famous wax museum proudly unveiled its new Nicki Minaj model this week, no doubt expecting a rapturous applause from the world.

However, after photos of the new addition to the museum surfaced online, not everyone has had particularly nice things to say about it.

In fact, some people are downright angry.

The wax model is a replica of Nicki from her music video for 2014 hit 'Anaconda', in which the singer is wearing a gold chain bra and collar, high-waisted black pants and shiny gold heels, with her hair scraped back into a long ponytail.

For the waxy duplicate, Nicki's been positioned on a table on all fours, with a leafy backdrop paying homage to the jungle theme of the video.

Thing is, many fans reckon it looks absolutely nothing like her, having branded the piece 'disrespectful'.

One person tweeted: "To whoever made this wax figure - ARE YOU FREAKING BLIND? HOW DARE YOU DO THAT TO THE QUEEN. YA GOT ME F***ED UP. AND YOU KNOW WHY I'M EVEN MORE UPSET? Look at her tattoo. The Chinese symbols aren't the same. Ya got me f***ed up @NICKIMINAJ @MadameTussauds #nickiminaj #madametussauds."

Another added: "I'm not even the biggest Nicki Minaj fan but even I know THIS IS DISRESPECTFUL!!!"

While a few people suggested it looked more like Kourtney Kardashian of Amerie, another was reminded of the embarassingly rubbish bronze bust of footballer Cristiano Ronaldo.

LADbible has reached out to Madame Tussauds for comment.

You may think you've seen a similar model of Minaj before, as the same design has been used at Madame Tussauds in Las Vegas - and many people didn't like it then, either.

That one also had other problems of its own, as visitors kept trying to hump it, in turn prompting the museum to amp up its security and 'redesign' the waxwork statue.

Issuing a statement about the whole debacle, referencing one particular incident, Madame Tussauds said: "Madame Tussauds attractions are interactive, immersive experiences, and our visitors are generally respectful towards the wax figures.

"It is unfortunate that this visitor decided to behave so inappropriately and we apologise for any offence this has caused.

"We do have staff monitoring guest behaviour in the attraction and do our utmost to ensure our wax figures are treated respectfully, but on this occasion clearly one of our hosts was not present.

"We are taking immediate steps to ensure more staff are present in this area and that the set around this particular figure is redesigned so that a picture like this cannot be taken again."

One person on Twitter simply hit back: "You should take it down and make a new @NICKIMINAJ wax figure. Bc the one you have is disrespectful to @NICKIMINAJ & her fans."
