Even Justin Bieber’s wax statue is making headlines for inappropriate behavior.
Today (Feb. 11), Page Six reported that the Canadian pop star’s wax likeness was removed from the Times Square Madame Tussauds due to an excessive amount of groping, fondling and grabbing by excited fans who just want to get a piece of the Biebs. Even one made out of wax.
A source told the New York Post that “with no ropes or barriers to stop them, thousands of fans have had their photographs taken with him since then — but it has taken its toll.”
Madame Tussauds New York told the newspaper that the figure, which made its debut in 2011, has been damaged over the years and “no longer does justice either to the star or to the attraction.” The statue still has his pre-teen bowl cut.
