Despite twitter’s major explosion on the museum sculpture. Madame Tussauds stood behind its team of sculptures.
In a statement provided to Wrap, Madame Tussauds stated, “Our talented team of sculptors take every effort to ensure we accurately color match all 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 which is something our sculptors are unable to account for at the production stage.”
