Lil Wayne had some things to say about his wax figure at the Hollywood Wax Museum in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.
The statue has been on display since the summer of 2022, but it is currently going viral on social media. “Sorry, wax museum, but [that] s**t ain’t me! You tried [though] and I appreciate the effort,” he tweeted. A few others even said that the wax figure resembled singers Toosii and Jacquees, which led Toosii to also chime in. “Man, that s**t don’t look like me even with my grown hair, FOH [laughing emojis],” the “Favorite Song” hitmaker wrote in a since-deleted tweet. Check out a clip of the statue here.

This comes after the debut of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s whitewashed wax figure that’s also been receiving a lot of criticism on the internet. As previously reported by REVOLT, the actor reposted an Instagram video of comedian James Andre Jefferson roasting Musée Grévin’s newest statue. “For the record, I’m going to have my team reach out to our friends at Grévin Museum in Paris, France so we can work [on] ‘updating’ my wax figure here with some important details and improvements — starting with my skin color,” Johnson included in the caption. “And next time I’m in Paris, I’ll stop in and have a drink with myself.”
In the hilarious clip, Jefferson said, “You know Black a** Samoan The Rock? That’s how Paris thinks he looks. They turned The Rock into a pebble… It looks like The Rock ain’t never seen the sun a day in his life.” He added that the new wax figure of Johnson looks like David Beckham or a member of the Royal Family. “I’m low-key offended,” he continued. “How are you just going to take all of the n**ga out of the Dwayne Johnson? It [doesn’t] look like him no more… It looks like he works at H&R Block or something like that… Is this how y’all felt when you lost The Little Mermaid? I understand. Let’s do Uno reverse — y’all get The Little Mermaid back, the mystical creature, and we get The Rock back. Like, what are we doing here?” Take a look at the post here.
