So many people have taken lewd photos with Nicki Minaj's new wax sculpture that Madame Tussaud's has had to add extra security.
When Nicki Minaj got her very own wax sculpture at the iconic Madame Tussaud's wax museum, she seemed pretty happy about it, Instagramming several pictures of the "Anaconda" video-derived figurine. Azealia Banks, on the other hand, fumed about it. Taking issue with the fact that Minaj was portrayed "bent over on all fours" and not "standing up with a mic in her hand," Banks also predicted that people would pose inappropriately with the sculpture:
All ppl are gonna do is go up to that statue and take pictures shoving their crotch in her face and putting their crotch on her butt— AZEALIA BANKS (@AZEALIABANKS) August 12, 2015
Well, she was right. In a statement released by the museum yesterday (below), they address a photo, very similar to the one Banks imagined, that has been circulating around the internet. The establishment is now adding additional security to prevent other such pictures.
