Madame Tussuads Rethinks Nicki Minaj Wax Figure
This just goes to show common sense ain't common.
Madam Tussaud put a wax figure of Nicki Minaj on all fours up for display. Now they are acting surprised when people act accordingly to a display of a woman half naked on all fours.
Madame Tussauds has said it is redesigning its Nicki Minaj display after images of visitors taking provocative photos with the waxwork appeared online.
The figure, which was unveiled earlier this month in Las Vegas, features the chart-topping rap artist with her hands and knees on the ground and her butt in the air – an homage to the music video for her track 'Anaconda.'
These pictures aren't offensive, it is offensive that they didn't realize that this would happen. The funny thing is they tried to shift the blame on the people in the photos. Someone had to suggest that this would happen.
I don't know what they were expecting when they put this on display. The wax figure doesn't command respect.
Here is the official word from Madame Tussuads.
“It is unfortunate that this visitor decided to behave so inappropriately and we apologise for any offence this has caused,” the museum said. “We do have staff monitoring guest behaviour in the attraction and do our utmost to ensure our wax figures are treated respectfully, but on this occasion clearly one of of our hosts was not present.”
The "Anaconda" video looked cheap and pornographic. Why would they choose to make a wax figure out of this video. They knew what kind of attention this wax figure would draw, I bet people are lining up to take pictures with the wax figure and Madam Tussaud has made more money and all of this talk about being redesigning the wax figure are lies.
