Remember how they did our girl in that Canadian wax museum:

Yall... I went to a wax museum in Canada and they thought this was Beyoncé. I'm hurt

Things started looking a little better when Madame Tussauds wax museum in New York debuted its versions of the 35-year-old multi-Grammy winner.

But when a kindhearted tweet on Tuesday revealed Beyoncé's alleged latest figure at Madame Tussauds New York, fans LOST IT!

Beyonce' wax figure at @MadameTussauds is FIERCE!


Some couldn't see past the surprising difference in her skin tone:

Which left many confused:

@CCFan007 @MadameTussauds This is a melanin-defunct, lipless, thickless Bey. What u expect boo?

@CCFan007 @MadameTussauds Where?!

While others thought the wax figure favored other celebrities:

@CCFan007 @MadameTussauds I thought this was Lindsay Lohan at first glance.


@jananamirah @CCFan007 @MadameTussauds or shakira? where is her melanin.

Fortunately, all hope is not lost. Madame Tussauds London exhibit has this amazing work of art on display for fans to see:


Madame Tussaud issued a statement to TMZ after receiving backlash on their Beyoncé figure:

"Our talented team of sculptors takes every effort to ensure we accurately color match all of our wax figures to the celebrity being depicted. Lighting within the attraction combined with flash photography may distort and misrepresent the color of our wax figures."
