In an attempt to recover from social media backlash, Madame Tussauds New York gave its whitewashed Beyoncé a makeover—but the internet still isn’t convinced it’s much better.
Last week, the infamous wax-figure establishment met the fury of the Beyhive when Twitter circulated of a picture of a very tragically sculpted Beyoncé.
According to TMZ, the museum’s tried to rectify the errors by correcting styling and lighting. This “styling” appears to include adding volume to wax figure’s blonde hair and making some changes to her face and complexion.

This isn’t the first wax figure of Beyoncé to have missed the mark. Bey sculptures across the nation have come under scrutiny in the wake of New York’s unveiling.

“At Madame Tussauds, our talented team of sculptors take every effort to ensure we accurately colour match all of our wax figures to the celebrity being depicted,” Madame Tussauds told the Daily Dot last week during the backlash. “Lighting within the attraction combined with flash photography may distort and misrepresent the colour of our wax figures which is something our sculptors are unable to account for at the production stage.”
While the latest attempt is a nice try, it’s still definitely not Beyoncé. Of all the examples they could have looked at to make a beautiful Bey, she still came out looking like a cross between Lindsay Lohan and Shakira.

Maybe one day we’ll get an accurate wax figure of our Queen B, until then, at least we have the real deal.
