Madame Tussauds Berlin has unveiled its wax figure of Nicki Minaj, but Anaconda fans seem to don’t want none of that.
The bust was modeled to emulate the rapper’s seductive look from her Anaconda’s music video, but the result unfortunately fell flat.
Set in a jungle-like environment, the statue sees “Minaj” donning a gold chain bra top and black thong while crouching towards the ground.
While the setting appears to be on point, fans think Minaj’s facial structure and skin tone resemble more like Kourtney Kardashian’s.
“I need a logical explanation to why Nicki Minaj’s figure looks like Kourtney Kardashian, lol,” one social media user teases.
Some fans think otherwise. “The wax figure looks like a cross with Nicki Minaj and Ansel Elgort,” one points out. Read more scathing social media reactions below.

There is no way that is supposed to be Nicki Minaj!?! It’s not even her shade of brown!!! Just like all brown people don’t look alike, all kinda sorta almost random brown people wax figures don’t pass for any ‘fill in the blank’ celebrity of color.— traysijetta (@traysijetta) January 7, 2020
Listen, I’m not even die hard Nicki Minaj fan but she can RAP & ppl don’t give her talent the credit it deserves. That wax figure Madame Tussaud’s put out…that’s not Onika Maraj. I’m so sorry. Does google not exist? They looked at that mess & said “yh, we got it”. No, you don’t. pic.twitter.com/VtQmLYgy0D— Zu (@ghetto004) January 7, 2020
