A new wax figure of rapper Nicki Minaj was unveiled at Madame Tussauds Berlin Tuesday and it has many fans wondering if the sculptor knows what Nicki Minaj looks like.
The display is inspired by Minaj’s “Anaconda” video and recreates her outfit from the video as well as its jungle setting. However, according to several fans on social media, the face isn’t nearly as accurate a representation.

“I need a logical explanation why @NICKIMINAJ wax figure is lookin like Kourtney Kardashion lol,” another added.
OH ITS WAX ???? I thought there was a poor soul out here looking like Caveman Nicki
A similar reaction occurred when the wax museum’s Las Vegas location unveiled the display of the “Super Bass” singer in 2015. Minaj herself joked about the artistic interpretation of her appearance.

In the past few years, Madame Tussauds has received similar criticism after unveiling wax figures for Beyonce and Ariana Grande as well.
