Canadian Attraction Gives Beyoncé Statue New Outfit
A tourist attraction in Niagara Falls, Ont. that was blasted last year for displaying a Beyoncé wax figure that looked nothing like Beyoncé has given it a new outfit.
But, Louis Tussaud’s Waxworks on Clifton Hill is still under fire for the figure's lack of a likeness to Queen Bey – and because it looks too white.
The statue looks so unlike the pop superstar that a “Beyoncé” name tag has been pinned to it.
Ama Scriver tweeted “How dare they insult Bey like this" with a photo of the re-styled Beyoncé.
According to the curators of the wax museum in Niagara Falls, this is Beyoncé. 🧐🧐🧐 pic.twitter.com/jrhd1J1qlI— Ama Scriver (@amascriver) February 11, 2018
Last year, Vice said the wax Beyoncé was dressed “like a flight attendant wearing a 1970s inspired sleep gown.”
Louis Tussaud’s Waxworks has declined to comment on the statue.
Last summer, Madama Tussauds – not connected to Louis Tussaud’s – in New York City was forced to re-style its Beyoncé wax figure and adjust the lighting on it after complaints that the statue was too white.
Madame Tussauds said in a statement at the time: “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.”
