Another day, another drama.

After Madame Tussauds unveiled the world's first Nicki Minaj wax figure in Las Vegas Aug. 4, the rapper called it "so iconic" and confessed to her Instagram followers that she "had no idea they were really doing this." The model made in her image poses on all fours and wears the same bikini and chains seen in "Anaconda." The museum even hired in dancers to perform choreography from Minaj's video.

Not everyone offered the museum such high praise, though.

Azealia Banks—who has, in the past, trashed her hip-hop peer—sounded off in a series of tweets. "Wow, they finally give nicki minaj a wax figure and it's a statue of her bent over on all fours...... White people yo...." the outspoken rapper told her 562,000 Twitter followers Wednesday. "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??? I would complain and ask for a do-over. That's such underhanded shade. Martha Stewart's most iconic moment was when she went to jail but they didn't put her wax figure in a jail uniform... Come on y'all... 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. That's not nice. I don't feel good about that. But if u like it I love it."

Neither Minaj nor Madam Tussauds have responded to Banks.

In addition to Minaj, other celebrity wax figures currently on display at Madame Tussauds Las Vegas include Muhammad Ali, Halle Berry, Sandra Bullock, Simon Cowell, Leonardo DiCaprio, Lady Gaga, Hugh Hefner, Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson, Chuck Liddell, Eva Longoria, Jennifer Lopez, Matthew McConaughey, Shaquille O'Neal, Rihanna, Tupac Shakur, Sofia Vergara and Tiger Woods.
