So many people took photos “inappropriate” photos of Nicki Minaj’s wax figure at Madame Tussard’s Wax Museum in Las Vegas, that they hired extra security. The museum held an “Instagram photo contest,” but one guy’s photo–where he mounted it from behind and pulled her hair– looked so rapey that the museum was forced to make a statement.
“We have been made aware of the inappropriate photograph that was taken. Madame Tussaud‘s attractions are interactive, immersive experiences, and our visitors are generally respectful towards the wax figures. It is unfortunate that the visitor decided to behave so inappropriately and we apologize for any offense this has caused. We do our utmost to ensure our wax figures are treated respectfully… and we are taking immediate steps to ensure more staff are present so that a picture like this cannot be taken again.”
Come on, like what did they expect? Of course people are going to take ridiculous, photobomb pics of the sculpture with her half-exposed ass sticking up in the air while they spank it, finger it, lick it, etc. The bigger question is, didn’t any of the dozens of people working on the wax figure–for months ever ask “I know she’s doing this in her video, but are we really posing this accomplished celebrity in the doggie style position so people can take mocking, disrespectful, sex assaulty photos with it?”
Fellow musician Azealia Banks tweeted “As much as that woman has accomplished, they had to put her on all fours…Why not standing up with a microphone in her hand?”
