Madame Tussaud is adding extra security to keep a sharp eye on the Nicki Minaj wax figure, after numerous people were found posing inappropriately with the statue.
Earlier this month, Madame Tussauds in Las Vegas revealed a risqué wax figure of Nicki Minaj. The exhibit takes scenes from Minaj’s “Anaconda” video, and features the rapper clad in a bikini and posing on all fours much like in the video.
The show opened to much fanfare, but now the museum is adding extra security after explicit photos (warning: this may offend) of museum goers posing inappropriately with the figure were posted on the Internet.
“We do have staff monitoring guest behavior in the attraction and do our utmost to ensure our wax figures are treated respectfully, but on this occasion clearly one of our hosts was not present,” said the museum in a statement.
Although Minaj herself takes no issue with the figure—she loves it—fellow rapper Azelia Banks let it be know that she hated it.
“As much as that woman has accomplished, they had to put her on all fours,” she tweeted. “Why not standing up with a mic in her hand? I would complain and ask for a do-over.”
All ppl are gonna do is go up to that statue and take pictures shoving their crotch in her face and putting their crotch on her butt

Turns out Azealia was right.
