A new wax figure of Zendaya unveiled at Madam Tussauds in London has fans doing a double-take— and not for the right reasons.

On Tuesday, the popular wax museum unveiled its new figure of the "Spider-Man: No Way Home" actress dressed in a hot pink suit.

"Zendaya just exudes cool. Not only that, she uses her celebrity status to join conversations, thoughtfully, on important social issues," Tim Waters, general manager at Madame Tussauds London, told PopSugar. "She is unapologetically herself — and we, along with her fans, love that about her. With rumours circulating that Zendaya is soon to become a Londoner herself, the timing to pay homage to her at Madame Tussauds London could not be better."

Although the figure was reportedly created using measurements from a 2015 sitting with the museum, many of the stars fans have been quick to criticize the finished product. Many have suggested that the figure looks nothing like Zendaya at all.

"What in the Kylie Jenner?" one Twitter user wrote, while another added, "You accidentally Kylie Jenner'd her."

"That wax figure does not look like Zendaya. The jawline, eyes, nose — completely wrong and she does not ever do the duck pout!" they wrote.

"The thing she's doing with her lips is giving Kylie Jenner. The real Zendaya has never made that face in her life. This doesn't look like her at all," a fan wrote on Instagram. "And I'm seriously confused about the outfit. She has rocked some seriously iconic looks and this is what you went with? Why?"

"Who is this woman...She looks like a Kardashian. Change it!" another wrote.

Madame Tussauds is no stranger to criticism of their work. In the past, both wax figures of Rihanna and Beyoncé displayed in Madame Tussauds museums have received harsh reviews for looking "nothing like" the A-list stars.
