Beyoncé's New Wax Sculpture Removed After Offending The Entire Internet
Look, we know there can only be one Beyoncé. But God damn it, Madame Tussauds, you had one job.
It’s disrespectful. It’s wrong. It’s not even remotely Bey. And after being unveiled earlier this week, the internet was not having it. So much so that as the New York Times report, this sculpture has now been removed from public display. Good riddance!
Please witness the image the started the great Beyoncé wax sculpture shitstorm of 2017:
“Fierce?” Maybe. Beyoncé? Um, try again, sweetie.
It looks more like a mid-2000s country singer. Even Shakira (praise be her name). But not Bey. Replies to the tweet were understandably bemused.
And they haven’t stopped since, with people online making fun of everything from the sculpture’s severe lack of melanin, to its plain un-Beyoncé-like facial features. One thing's for sure: If Lindsay Lohan and Jessica Simpson were to split eggs and have a baby girl together, we know the perfect bridal shower gift.
