Beyonce's fans are not happy about her Madame Tussauds wax figure and have even accused the museum of "whitewashing" her likeness.

The highly-popular wax museum took to their Twitter to announce that the figure of the 35-year-old Single Ladies star had been moved to their New York location.

That was when several members of the Beyhive got active on Twitter to trash Madame Tussauds.

One user pointed out the skin tone of the statue as they wrote: "Something's not white right with this wax figure of @Beyonce."

Others compared it to Mariah Carey, Taylor Swift, Kesha, Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan, and even Kate Hudson.

Television and radio personality B. Scott also chimed in as she wrote: "Somebody should lose their job for this! Get it together, @MadameTussauds. Is this supposed to be @beyonce?"

Some even compared it to the spot-on replica of Kylie Jenner unveiled at Madame Tussauds in Hollywood on Tuesday.

A Twitter user joked: "So how does Kylie's wax figure look realer than her while Beyonce's looks like a white Mariah Carey?"

Madame Tussauds responded to criticism as they claimed that it was all a matter of the lighting in the social media post.

A representative for the company told TMZ on Wednesday: '"Our talented team of sculptors takes every effort to ensure we accurately colour match all of our wax figures to the celebrity being depicted.

"Lighting within the attraction combined with flash photography may distort and misrepresent the colour of our wax figures."
