‘Lighting within the attraction combined with flash photography may distort and misrepresent the colour of our wax figures.’

But despite the corporation’s protest, social media still dragged them. Some compared Beyonce’s wax figure to the spot-on replica of Kylie Jenner unveiled at Madame Tussauds in Hollywood on Tuesday.
