The wax version of Nicki is featured posing suggestively on her hands and knees, something not everyone was impressed by. The first to take issue was fellow rapper Azealia Banks, who used her Twitter account to suggest the museum was throwing undercover shade at Nicki by featuring her in such a compromising position.
“Wow, they finally gave Nicki Minaj a wax figure and it’s a statue of her bent over on all fours,” Azealia wrote. “I would complain and ask for a do-over,” she continued. That’s such underhanded shade.”
Azealia went on to note all of Nicki’s accomplishments and asked why her figure couldn’t have been shown standing up with a microphone in hand. She also rightfully guessed that museum visitors would defile the statue by posing suggestively with it.
Fast forward a few weeks and as you can see from the image above, that is exactly what has happened and Madame Tussauds is now offering up an apology.
Via press release the museum apologized to both Nicki and the public, and said extra security would be posted to combat visitors who jump on podiums and make asses of themselves by sexually defiling wax figures.
Ok, they didn’t quite say that, but you get the meaning: No more pics of Nicki’s wax figure being butt-humped will be making its way online.
