Beyoncé’s Wax Figure Looks NOTHING Like Beyoncé... not even close.

Beyoncé's latest wax figure debuted today and it's getting a whole lot of attention... for not the best reason...

The Beyhive has been buzzing with outrage since a tweet of an alleged Madame Tussauds wax figure of the Lemonadesinger went viral last night—and it's not hard to see why.

Tweeters were quick to point out how little the figure resembled Queen Bey herself, from facial features to overall complexion, and accused the museum of whitewashing.

Many also made comparisons between the wax figure and famous white women, like Lindsay Lohan, Christina Aguilera and Kate Gosselin.

This viral controversy came on the same day as the reveal of Kylie Jenner's wax figure, and the accuracy of Kylie's led people to question if the same effort was put into Beyoncé's.

Madame Tussauds released the following statement to E! News soon after the controversy over the not-so-flawless figure, saying, "Our talented team of sculptors takes every effort to ensure we accurately color match all of our wax figures to the celebrity being depicted. Lighting within the attraction combined with flash photography may distort and misrepresent the color of our wax figures."

Whether or not the issue in this particular case is the lighting, Beyhive members posted other examples of wax museums failing to capture Bey's fierceness.

Regardless of how well known Queen Bey is... it's clear she's pretty hard to recreate.
