Los Angeles: Rapper Nicki Minaj's waxwork at the Madame Tussauds in Las Vegas is now protected 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.
A Twitter user had reported on August 28 an obscene photograph taken with the 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 near the statue's posterior.
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 updated the set. This photograph was clearly taken before the updates occurred."
