Madame Tussauds will remove its Nicki Minaj wax figure just a month after its debut in Las Vegas, reports Saint Heron. The “Anaconda”-inspired figure was mired in controversy since it was unveiled. Museum goers took raunchy photos with the figurine and of course, posting their tasteless pictures online for some laughs and likes. As a result, Madame Tussauds heightened security.
When that didn’t work, the powers that be decided that it may be best “that the set around this particular figure is redesigned so that a picture like this cannot be taken again.”
Madame Tussauds website says the subjects of its wax figures are involved in the creative process (measurements, etc), but Nicki seemed to be notified on social media that the figure was unveiled. Either way, it should have been a no brainer that this was probably going to happen with that figure in such a raunchy position. People have no behavior if given the opportunity.
Of all the standing upright in a normal position poses that could have been chosen of Nicki Minaj…
Lesson learned, though.
