Madame Tussaud’s Statue Of Diddy Intentionally Decapitated
A man intentionally knocked over and decapitated a statue of Diddy at Madame Tussauds in Times Square on Saturday, according to the New York Police Department.
The suspect, who was wearing a black hooded jacket and blue jeans, seemingly has some beef with the rap mogul because he first started yelling at the wax replica before physically attacking it, NBC New York reports.
He then stomped on Diddy’s waxed head before fleeing the scene, police say.

Madame Tussauds New York says artists will fix the damage as quickly as possible to get the figure back into the museum’s A-List Party Room, the Associated Press reports.
General Manager Tom Middleton said that Madame Tussauds doesn’t rope off its statues so “guests can interact respectfully” with them.
Diddy, who attended his statue’s unveiling in 2009, has yet to respond to the incident.
We are not sure why someone would do such a thing to Diddy, who at one point changed his name to Brother Love, but we can surely add this incident to the bucket of bizarre things that happened this Black History Month.
