Beyoncé's large fan base, often called the Beyhive, isn't happy with the way their gal has been reimagined in wax.

A photo has shown up of her wax figure at Madame Tussauds in Los Angeles, and they believe they made her too Caucasian.

In fact, they believe she looks more like Mariah Carey, Shakira, Lindsay Lohan, or Kate Hudson, or even a combination of all of those, than Queen Bey. Her hair is lighter, as is her skin tone.

This has inspired the hashtag "#TussaudsSoWhite," a takeoff of the hashtag "OscarsSoWhite" that was used when the Academy Awards had no notable people of color nominated.

Adding insult to injury, a picture has been published of Kylie Jenner's wax figure, and she's depicted much more realistically.

"At Madame Tussauds, our talented team of sculptors take every effort to ensure we accurately colour match all of our wax figures to the celebrity being depicted," said the museum in a statement.

They added that "lighting with the attraction combined with flash photography may distort and misrepresent the colour of our wax figures which is something our sculptors are unable to account for at the production stage."

Nevertheless, the new mom has a large fanbase that follows her extensively, and they're just not buying this wax version of their idol.

"It's a good thing you're not talking about *Beyoncé. cause this white woman is definitely not her." – nañi

"Me still looking for the real Beyoncé wax figure cause this ain't it." – Nicki, including a GIF of Whitney Houston looking for someone in a crowd

"THIS IS NOT BEYONCE THIS IS A POOR MANs MARIAH CAREY WITH SOME LINDSAY LOHAN MIXED IN NO NO NO @MadameTussauds" – Elizabeth Keifer

"They really made Kylie's wax figure spot on and disrespected Beyonce like that [crying emoji]" – Charmaine Riley

"Theory: Beyoncé wax figure makers have never seen Beyoncé." – Michelle Lee
