Louis Tussaud’s Wax Museum in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada recently unveiled their new Beyoncé figure and it’s something to behold.
Ama Scriver on Twitter was the one to draw attention to the attraction.
‘According to the curators of the wax museum in Niagara Falls, this is Beyoncé.’

Many fans quickly took note of the lack of resemblance and, most notably, how pale the figure’s skin is.
These wax sculptor people keep making Beyoncé white, and just… no. https://t.co/0yRtQWtfsH

Not the first time
It’s hardly the first time peole have criticized a wax museum for their take on a beloved celebrity.
A figure of Lady Gaga last year was definitely memorable.
However, perhaps what’s particularly astounding about this scenario is that it’s not the first time this museum has attempted — poorly — to recreate the Formation singer’s look.
Last year, the same Canadian establishment drew ire from fans for another Beyoncé figure.
People quickly pointed out most wax creators tend to miss the mark when it comes to her.

Yup, those are all Beyoncé wax figures, believe it or not.
Even the wax figure itself can’t believe it’s Bey!
the wax figure’s face! she can’t believe she’s supposed to be Beyoncé, either https://t.co/1zIbrXS7Of

So the real question remains: who is the figure then?
Fans put forth their theories and there are so many good ones.
Why do these wax museums continue to have Beyoncé looking like Jennifer Aniston? pic.twitter.com/xbTNlkiBOc

Maybe we should quit while we’re ahead when it comes to her.
