Discover Lil Wayne’s jaw-dropping reaction to his controversial wax figure at the Hollywood Wax Museum. Find out what left fans and critics buzzing in this must-read article.
Lil Wayne recently made headlines when he shared his thoughts on the wax figure of himself displayed at the Hollywood Wax Museum in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. This wax figure is a striking representation of the iconic rapper, complete with intricate tattoos adorning his chest, a white polka dot shirt casually hanging from his arms, and eye-catching red and blue plaid pants. It has been on exhibit since the previous summer, but it recently caught the attention of the public for all the wrong reasons.
Critics took to social media to express their disappointment and sometimes amusement at the wax figure’s accuracy, or lack thereof. Some compared the figure to other artists such as Toosii or Jacquees, highlighting the disparities between the sculpture and Lil Wayne’s actual appearance.
One person quipped, “They did Lil Wayne FILTHYYY,” while another shared a humorous anecdote, saying, “This Lil Wayne wax figure looks less like him than the first time I did acid and I stupidly went on my phone and saw a picture of Birdman and Lil Wayne, and for a second, I thought their faces morphed together.”
However, Lil Wayne himself eventually weighed in on the matter, acknowledging the effort put into creating the wax figure. He diplomatically stated, “Sorry wax museum, but that isn’t me! You tried though, and I appreciate the effort.”
Interestingly, this controversy involving Lil Wayne‘s wax figure emerged shortly after Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson addressed a similar issue with his own wax figure displayed at the Grévin Museum in Paris, France.
Fans expressed concerns about the figure’s portrayal of his skin color, suggesting it was “white-washed.” Johnson responded by announcing his intention to work with the museum to update his wax figure, ensuring it more accurately represented his background.
