A Beyonce wax sculpture has been criticised for whitewashing the singer and making her unrecognisable.

The statue was unveiled at the Louis Tussaud's wax museum in Niagara Falls, Canada, in early January, but only now has it captured the revolt of Queen Bey's fans.

"According to the curators of the wax museum in Niagara Falls, this is Beyonce," wrote journalist Ama Scriver, who kickstarted the online backlash by posting a photo of the sculpture.

The post prompted fans to share photos of other attempts to capture the magnetism of one of the world's biggest popstars on wax.

It turns out the outcome has never been pleasant.

From plain whitewashing to comparisons to US reality TV star Farrah Abraham, five other statues have made fans shiver.

One user shared the theory that "Beyonce wax figure makers have never seen Beyonce", while another pointed out one figure reminded her of "celebrity barbies from the 90s".

"These wax sculptor people keep making Beyonce white," wrote another angry fan.

"For real I am obsessed with how bad this wax museum is. It is the rudest tourist attraction," said another.

The most criticised statues include the one made by Madame Tussauds and exhibited at London's Regent's Park, one in Delhi and one in Turkey.

We will let you decide which one is the worst.
