The grand unveiling of Nicki Minaj’s waxwork figure in Madame Tussauds Berlin has been the laughing stock of the Internet today.

Many fans of the Anaconda songstress – who appears wearing only a metal bra and knickers in wax form – have slammed the figure for looking absolutely nothing like Nicki.

Twitter has been rife with users suggesting other celeb doppelgangers for the figure which have included Kourtney Kardashian, Selena and even male actor Ansel Egort.

But it now transpires that the ‘new’ figure was previously displayed in Madame Tussauds Las Vegas – and Nicki even approved it.

Following the mass ridiculing today, an Instagram post from 2015 has resurfaced which shows Nicki going wild for the wax version of herself.

“YOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO WTF?!?!?!?!??!?? Had no idea they were really doing this,” followed by a string of love heart eyes. “I would’ve went to Vegas for this. #HappyBirthdayAnaconda Madam Tussauds Wax Figure- whoever did this,” she excitedly gushed to her followers.

The figure made headlines at the time as fans kept posting cheeky photos of themselves touching Nicki’s famous bum, which is scarcely covered and jutting out.

The waxwork become a talking point again today after the attraction was shipped to Berlin and put back on display.

Social media has been flooded with comments about the dummy with many divided over who it esembles.

“The nicki minaj wax figure looks like Kourtney Kardashian lol’,” tweeted one.

Another said Nicki’s features looked more like singer Selena Quintanilla-Pérez.

While a third suggested the model looked like Ansel Elgort.

It’s not the first time a Madame Tussauds model has gone viral for all the wrong reasons.

In 2016 fans claimed they were ‘creeped out’ by a waxwork of Kendall Jenner.

The mannequin, which debuted on London Fashion Week, showed the reality star styled in racy black underwear and a long silk dressing gown, with feet clad in a pair of killer stiletto heels.

Similarly, the unveiling of Ariana Grande’s waxwork also sparked confusion amongst fans.

“I look more like Ariana Grande than this wax figure of Ariana Grande,” tweeted one fan.
