Justin Bieber’s Wax Figure Is Melting After Being Groped By Too Many Fans

Claire Hannum / February 11, 2014

Justin Bieber is melting. The figure of the pop star at Madame Tussauds wax museum in New York City has been groped and otherwise manhandled by so many fans that it’s starting to deteriorate. The figure has no barricades or ropes blocking it off, leaving fans free to hug, photograph, and questionably caress a waxy Bieber all day long. That much attention from so many grimy hands has withered the faux-Biebs and forced the museum remove it from public display. Much like the real-life Bieber, the model’s damage “no longer does justice either to the star or to the attraction.” Bret Pidgeon, the museum’s general manager, hopes that “we can welcome a new ‘grown-up’ Justin back to the attraction in the near future.” No rush, guys.
