A terrible wax statue of Dwayne Johnson is unveiled and the actor comments

While the Musée Grévin in Paris left many speechless at the recent unveiling of Dwayne Johnson’s wax statue, the latter commented on the situation on Instagram, posting a (hilarious) video of comedian James Andre Jefferson Jr. mocking the museum and the statue.

“For the record, I’m going to have my team reach out to our friends at Grevin Museum, in Paris France so we can work at “updating” my wax figure here with some important details and improvements- starting with my skin color,” the superstar said.

The wax statue at the Musée Grévin features a version of the actor with visibly white skin, looking more like the character in a certain household products ad than the former professional wrestler!


Moreover, this isn’t the first time wax statue’s producers have been criticized for a poor recreation of the celebrity it’s supposed to represent.

Beyoncé’s, in particular, whose features were not accurately captured and who had also been criticized for her lighter complexion, Justin Bieber’s which had a lack of accuracy in facial features, Rihanna’s with differences in facial features and complexion, Ariana Grande’s which was not true to her image, including her distinctive features and hairstyle and Donald Trump’s… which received negative attention due to its caricatured effect.

But the Rock statue is certainly one of the most catastrophic to date.
