It Turns Out Posing Nicki Minaj's Wax Figure on All Fours Was a Bad Idea

Madame Tussauds Las Vegas is tired of people taking inappropriate pictures with it.

Madame Tussauds is the most reliable place in Las Vegas where tourists can pose for pictures with celebrities, even if they are wax. How those wax figures are posed obviously plays a role in how people take pictures with them, and maybe Madame Tussauds might want to rethink how Nicki Minaj's figure is posed now that everyone's pretending to do dirty things to it.

Based on her "Anaconda" video, Minaj's scantily clad figure is on all fours and surrounded by the video's familiar jungle setting. Unfortunately people can't help but get lewd in the photo op, and in their defense, the whole thing is almost set up that way. (Well, except for this guy who climbed onto the table with the figure. That's taking it to the next level.)

For her part, Nicki was excited about the new figure. Here's her Instagram reaction.

Not surprisingly, Madame Tussauds is not impressed with the photo of the guy on his knees behind the statue. They're staffing up to make sure it doesn't happen again.

There was one rapper who called out the new figure as soon as it was unveiled, by the way. Azealia Banks, who (to be fair), has had some bad blood with Minaj in the past. But never the less she pretty much nailed the problem on sight.

Here are a few of the offending pictures from Instagram.
