    Someone help me identify this woman because it's not Nicki.

    Madame Tussauds is no stranger to bringing our fave celebs to life in wax form. Yes, these are actually wax figures.

    Well, it looks like Nicki Minaj has become the next wax victim. Madame Tussauds in Berlin recently unveiled their Nicki statue and, let's just say, I don't know this woman.

    Others called out Madame Tussauds for whitewashing her:

    My white coworker Sabrina came as Nicki Minaj to our teams costume party, what y’all think? 😍

    They have Nicki looking like an over tanned white soccer mom in the face 😩😩😩

    In conclusion, give Nicki the justice she deserves and take this one back to the drawing board.
