The international attraction Madame Tussauds Wax Museum is usually accurate when capturing the essence of celebrities. However, when it comes to Beyoncé, not so much.
Spectators would assume that Queen Bey would have a perfect wax figure, but unfortunately it seems that it isn't the case. In July 2017, the Louis Tussaud's Waxworks Museum in Niagara Falls received a ton of backlash after a photo of what the museum considered to be Beyoncé went viral.

Of course the Bey Hive wasn't having it and slammed the museum for reportedly having a white-washed Beyoncé wax figure.

If wax figures looked like who they were supppsed to look like, they wouldn’t be needing signs or name tags.

Social media users continued to explain that they were confused at how the museum could get such an iconic woman completely wrong and claimed that the Queen deserved much better than this.
Beyoncé Wax Figures Gone Wrong
This isn't the first Beyoncé wax figure to go under fire. In 2017, fans immediately shaded the Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum in New York City after they debuted Beyoncé, which fans considered to be a cross between Lindsay Lohan and Mandy Moore. Other Twitter users stated the figure looked like Kate Gosselin from Kate Plus 8 wearing a purple ensemble.
Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum received so many complaints about their display that they decided to adjust it to meet fans' requests, but unfortunately they still weren't pleased.
Another Beyoncé model was created in Hollywood, California, which still didn't embody the "Drunk In Love" singer. Some even joked that it was Un-BEYlievable for creators to think it looks anything like her. Tourists stated that the only thing they managed to get right was her curvy frame and toned legs.
While all of the displays have already received harsh remarks, social media users still believe that wax could never do the Queen justice.
"Our talented team of wax artists take great pride in their work of creating realistic figures of celebrities.However, on closer inspection, we agree that the Beyoncé figure does not accurately represent her natural skin tone. We plan to immediately remove the Beyoncé figure from the attraction and send it to our wax artists to correct the skin tone to properly reflect Beyoncé's true color," a Public Relations Representative, Suzzane Smagala-Potts told Enstars,
