Please Stop Assaulting Nicki Minaj’s Wax Figure at Madam Tussauds
Nicki Minaj's anaconda don't want none (of your repeated lewd lunges at her Madam Tussauds wax-rendering).
About two weeks ago, the rapper posted an Instagram photo of the new figure—which is featured at the museum's Las Vegas location and modeled after her famous "Anaconda" pose—with an excited caption that read "I love it and I can't wait to see it." Unfortunately, some of the attraction's patrons couldn't wait to...uhh...touch it, and now, Madam Tussads is beefing up security to ensure Nicki 2.0 remains unbothered.
"We have been made aware of [an] inappropriate photograph that was taken at Madame Tussauds Las Vegas, involving Nicki Minaj’s new wax figure,” the museum tweeted in a statement yesterday (August 18). “Madame Tussauds attractions are interactive, immersive experiences, and our visitors are generally respectful towards the wax figures. It is unfortunate that this visitor decided to behave so inappropriately and we apologize for any offense this has caused."
The company added that the set around the figure has been "redesigned" to prevent future incidents.
Gentlemen, a quick reminder: A woman's choice to wear a short skirt doesn't give you license to assault her, and the same can be said for her wax counterpart. It doesn't matter what she's wearing or not wearing; what she's doing or not doing—if there's been no invitation, don't make it your business to RSVP in the affirmative.
Take a look at the wax-Minaj below, and if you're headed to Madam Tussauds, kindly remember to keep your hands inside the vehicle at all times.
