Madame Tussauds Wax Museum in New York City has restyled its controversial new wax figure of Beyoncé. This comes just days after the museum was accused of whitewashing the songstress.
In a statement to EW on Friday, the museum said, “We love, respect, and enjoy a working relationship with Beyoncé. We have adjusted the styling and lighting of her figure, and she is on display at Madame Tussauds New York.”
The museum unveiled the statue of Beyonce earlier this week, was immediately met with backlash from onlookers on social media.
On Wednesday, Madame Tussauds spoke with The Wrap about the controversial figure, saying: “Our talented team of sculptors take every effort to ensure we accurately color match all of our wax figures to the celebrity being depicted. … Lighting within the attraction combined with flash photography may distort and misrepresent the color of our wax figures which is something our sculptors are unable to account for at the production stage.”
