Madame Tussauds in Las Vegas has decided to protect Rapper Nicki Minaj's wax work with barriers. The museum has taken the action to prevent visitors from taking sexually suggestive photographs with the 32-year-old rapper's wax figure. Minaj’s statue is a replica of the singer’s pose from her “Anaconda” music video, she is down on all fours with her butt up in the air. 

A Twitter user had reported on August 28 an obscene photograph taken with the "iconic" wax work to the museum. 

The user said: "@TussaudsVegas this needs to stop right now." 

The image showed a middle-aged man opening up his mouth right on the statue's posterier as if he bit it.  Another user posted the same photograph and wrote: "It's time for @TussaudsVegas to either rope off the Nicki Minaj wax statue or redesign it. Folks are just rude." 

The museum was quick to respond to the report.

"We have been made aware of the inappropriate photograph that was taken at Madame Tussauds Las Vegas, involving Nicki Minaj's new wax figure. It is unfortunate that this visitor decided to behave so inappropriately and we apologize for any offense this has caused. We are taking immediate steps to ensure more staff are present in this area and that the set around this particular figure is redesigned so that a picture like this cannot be taken again."
