Another wrote: “They did dirty on Beyoncé though.”

Still, some noted that progress has been made compared to the artist’s other wax figures.

“I mean the new Beyoncé wax figure looks better than the last one so give credit where it’s due,” one person said among all the complaints.

In 2017, a wax figure of the singer was removed for appearing “bleached.”

At the time, many compared the statue to looking like Taylor Swift.

After “briefly taking it off the floor” to “adjust it,” TMZ reported that it returned to the museum after it was altered to more closely match Beyonce’s skin tone.

Madame Tussauds New York issued a statement saying: “We love, respect and enjoy a working relationship with Beyoncé… We have adjusted the styling and lighting of her figure, and she is (back) on display.”
