A wax figure of Beyoncé has gone viral on Twitter after fans raised suspicions about the accuracy of likeness between the wax figure and the actual real life pop star.
The artwork was put on display as part of an exhibition at a wax museum in Niagara Falls. A Twitter user shared a photo of the figure, saying, “According to the curators of the wax museum in Niagara Falls, this is Beyoncé.”

Her tweet was met with a barrage of replies as Twitter users were dumbfounded by the significantly different wax figure. Some said that it even came off as trying to make the singer look white.
“Breaking: Beyoncé is now Dee from Always Sunny,” another user tweeted. Other Twitter users expressed their frustration at how portrayals of Beyoncé as wax figures and other media representations are frequently inaccurate.
Last year, famous wax museum Madame Tussauds was criticized for “white-washing” its figurine of the pop star.
