Beyoncé fans slam singer’s new wax figure: ‘This is a white woman’

Holy blue!

Madame Tussaud’s famous wax museum in Paris has unveiled a new wax statue of Beyoncé and it’s not sitting well with members of the Beyhive.

Many were outraged that the “Texas Hold ‘Em” singer’s skin color appeared to be bleached.

“🤔😒 I DON’T KNOW WHO THIS IS OR SUPPOSED TO BE! But it’s not MY QUEEN! 🤷🏽‍♂️🙄🤦🏽‍♂️🤬 This is a WHITE WOMAN!,” one upset fan wrote, while another remarked, “now beyoncé may be light skinned but this is crazy…😭😭.”

“turned white and failed to correct her features,” grumbled one person while another simply asked, “Who the hell is that?”

A representative for Madame Tussauds did not immediately return our request for comment.

Oddly, this isn’t the first time the museum has come under fire for its depiction of the 42-year-old Grammy winner.

In 2017, a statue of Beyoncé was criticized for its face, hair and perhaps most disturbingly, it’s apparent too light skin tone, which even spawned a hashtag #TussaudsSoWhite.

Madame Tussauds New York – where the statue was displayed – addressed the uproar in a statement to Page Six at the time, saying: “At Madame Tussauds, our talented team of sculptors work hard to ensure that we accurately color all of our wax figures to the celebrity being presented

“Lighting inside the attraction combined with flash photography can distort and misrepresent the color of our wax figures, which our sculptors are unable to account for at the production stage.”

Unfortunately, the singer’s skin tone has been the source of endless chatter throughout her career.

Last year, Beyoncé’s mother, Tina Knowles, spoke out against trolls who accused her daughter of “whitening her skin” or trying to pass herself off as a white woman by donning platinum locks to the premiere of her “Renaissance” tour film.

Knowles, 70, posted a montage video showing the mean comments and ended with a message that read: “Beyoncé is a brown skin girl sometimes more or less light. Brown skin girl it is [sic] more than skin color. It is culture, pride, strength.”

In 2019, Beyoncé’s father Matthew Knowles addressed his daughter’s skin tone by claiming that her career benefited from her lighter complexion.
