Less than a month after it’s debut, the controversial Nicki Minaj wax figure is set to be removed and replaced at Madame Tussauds.

Following a series of raunchy photos taken with the wax figure, the museum has opted to rid itself of the statue and replace it with something else.

We’re still not sure what reaction they thought they would get from that tacky statue pose?!

Following numerous photographs and visitors inappropriate behavior surrounding the “Anaconda” inspired statue, Madame Tussauds heightened security for the figure. When that proved to be ineffective they decided it may be best to take “immediate steps to ensure more staff are present in this area and that the set around this particular figure is redesigned so that a picture like this cannot be taken again.”

The real question is how this figure even came to exist. According to the official Madame Tussauds website, the subjects of the wax figures are very involved in the creation process. Nicki Minaj was essentially notified via social media that it was on display. Perhaps with the new statue the museum will consult her and actually get the proper measurements.
