Madame Tussauds museum has decided to remodel rapper Nicki Minaj's wax work. Ever since the model was unveiled, there had been a number of incidents of visitors groping the statue. The museum called the visitors' inappropriate behaviour "unfortunate". The figure, which displays a scantily-clad Minaj in a provocative pose, was made based on the rapper's music video for Anaconda. One visitor posed with her tongue about to lick the figure's derriere, reports

"Madame Tussauds attractions are interactive, immersive experiences, and our visitors are generally respectful towards the wax figures," the museum said in a statement. "It is unfortunate that this visitor decided to behave so inappropriately and we apologize for any offense this has caused," the statement added.
