New York — A wax figure of Beyoncé at Madame Tussauds in New York has been given a makeover after fans of the megastar said the figure was too white.

Fans complained on Twitter that the figure looked more like Lindsay Lohan or Shakira than Beyoncé. (Read more here)

The New York Times reported that the figure was off the floor Thursday.

A spokeswoman for the museum declined to specify what changes were made.

A representative for Beyoncé did not return an email seeking comment.
