The "Anaconda" singer was honored by Madame Tussauds in Las Vegas with her own mannequin and it is posed very provocatively in a scene from the star's famous butt-loving video. But as Azealia Banks pointed out, other female singers are posed in non-sexual positions with microphones in their hands and Minaj's position will only result in further degradation by fans.
Wow, they finally give nicki minaj a wax figure and it's a statue of her bent over on all fours...... White people yo....— AZEALIA BANKS (@AZEALIABANKS) August 12, 2015
As much as that woman has accomplished, they had to put her on all fours... Why not standing up with a mic in her hand ???— AZEALIA BANKS (@AZEALIABANKS) August 12, 2015
I would complain and ask for a do-over. That's such underhanded shade— AZEALIA BANKS (@AZEALIABANKS) August 12, 2015
All ppl are gonna do is go up to that statue and take pictures shoving their crotch in her face and putting their crotch on her butt— AZEALIA BANKS (@AZEALIABANKS) August 12, 2015
Unfortunately, Banks' prediction was entirely correct. Since making its debut last week, Minaj's wax figure has been sexually assaulted by Las Vegas visitors on the regular.

Minaj herself seems to love the piece — she posted pics of it on her Instagram the day it debuted, and rather than weigh in on Banks' opinion, she posted these sage words.
