UPDATE. Madame Tussauds Pulls Ridiculous Beyoncé Wax Figure After Backlash.

Update.. Beyoncé‘s wax figure at Madame Tussauds Midtown Manhattan location is back on display with “adjusted styling and lighting,” according to the New York Daily News.

They better put some respeck on Beyonce’s name.

The wax figure resembles Shakira.

According to reports, It looks like Madame Tussauds has bowed to social media pressure and removed its latest Beyonce waxwork.

The model in New York got members of the Beyhive around the world talking. Some said the waxwork doesn’t resemble the 35-year-old singer and questioned who commissioned it.

Others accused the museum of whitewashing Beyonce’s image.

Now, the New York Times is reporting that model has vanished from the museum floor.

Pictures of the figure started doing the rounds on Twitter on Tuesday night.

 

A rep speaks out..

“At Madame Tussauds, our talented team of sculptors take every effort to ensure we accurately colour match all of our wax figures to the celebrity being depicted,” they told Newsbeat.

“Lighting within the attraction combined with flash photography may distort and misrepresent the colour of our wax figures which is something our sculptors are unable to account for at the production stage.”
