Earlier this month, Madame Tussaud’s wax museum in Las Vegas unveiled a Nicki Minaj wax statue that immortalizes the rap star on her hands and knees from a scene in her racy “Anaconda” video. However, the museum has decided to add more security after photos popped up on social media of fans posing with the statue in provocative ways.
Nicki, who has re-posted pictures of her Barbz getting very close to her wax figure, has never complained, but the museum is taking extra precautions, especially after one fan was photographed imitating a sexual act with her figure.
The company posted a statement on Twitter about the added security measures. “We have been made aware of the inappropriate photograph that was taken at Madame Tussauds Las Vegas, involving Nicki Minaj’s new wax figure,” the statement reads. “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.”
Madame Tussauds notes their staff unusually monitors guest behavior “to ensure wax figures are treated respectfully, but on this occasion clearly one of our hosts was not present. We are taking immediate steps to ensure more staff are present in the area and that the set around this particular figure is redesigned so that a picture cannot be taken again.”
