Madame Tussauds is a wax museum with a main location in London and other locations in major cities elsewhere. It’s an institution that dates back to the mid 19th century, specializing in wax replicas of countless celebrities and pop culture characters.

But every once in a while, a Tussauds figure comes around that lives somewhere in the “No Thank You” region of the Uncanny Valley. For instance, twitter recently found out about their Nicki Minaj wannabe doppelganger, and they are not happy.

You know there’s something wrong right away, even if you can’t put your finger on it.

Because… hmmm….

Yeah, what’s going on here??

It quickly started getting ranked among similar sculpture missteps.

Because if Twitter is good at anything, it’s being judgey AF…

And there were a lot of takes on not just the look, but the pose itself.

Even Trevor Noah got in on the conversation:

But in all the hubbub, a couple of important details got lost…

1) The figure isn’t new, it’s been up for more than 4 years

2) Nicki has seen it, and apparently loved it

Hey internet… catch up!

What do you think? Not a really good representation of Nicki? Could they have done better? Or did they nail it?

Oh… and would you pay to see it in person?
