Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is not entirely pleased with the appearance of his newly unveiled wax figure. The 51-year-old actor took to social media on Sunday to share a video featuring comedian James Andre Jefferson Jr., who was humorously poking fun at Johnson’s wax likeness displayed at the Grévin Museum in Paris. The wax figure had garnered criticism for its skin color, which appeared noticeably lighter than the real-life star.
In his witty video, Jefferson Jr. quipped, “You made The Rock look like he’s David Beckham,” further exaggerating, “It looks like The Rock is about to join the royal family!” Johnson, taking the jest in stride, shared the comedian’s clip and hinted at addressing the issue with his “friends” at the museum, playfully suggesting an “update” for his wax figure.
In good humor, Johnson commented, “I knew my boy @jamesjeffersonj had this Rock wax statue in his roasting crosshairs 😂💣🔥,” and even drew a lighthearted parallel, “Is this how y’all felt when you lost the Little Mermaid? 🤣 I legit belly laughed at this ☝🏾.”
Setting the record straight, Johnson promised, “For the record, I’m going to have my team reach out to our friends at Grevin Museum in Paris, France, so we can work at ‘updating’ my wax figure here with some important details and improvements – starting with my skin color 🤣✊🏾💪🏾.” The “Black Adam” star playfully concluded by saying, “And next time I’m in Paris, I’ll stop in and have a drink with myself 🥃 😉.”
Following Johnson’s humorous call for an “update,” the Grévin Museum, as reported by Deadline, promptly acknowledged the concerns and assured they would rectify the situation without delay.
In their statement, the museum expressed their agreement with Johnson and pledged to send him new photos of the corrected wax figure once the improvements were completed. The museum further extended an invitation to Johnson, stating, “We are waiting for him when he will come to Paris and the Grevin Wax Museum to celebrate that with a cup of champagne.”
