After fans called out Musée Grévin in Paris for unveiling an incredibly light-skinned wax statue of Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, the actor/wrestler says his team will be reaching out in hopes to "update" his likeness with "some important details and improvements."
You can see the figure below.
Johnson, whose mother is Samoan and father was Black Nova Scotian, took to Instagram to let his fans know he is working on having some "updates" made to his wax statue.
On Sunday, he shared a video of comedian James Andre Jefferson Jr. railing on the figure and agreed something should be done.
He captioned the post:
“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 🤣✊🏾💪🏾"
“And next time I’m in Paris, I’ll stop in and have a drink with myself 🥃 😉"

While people on social media were happy to learn The Rock wants to do something about it, they were still pretty miffed that the museum got the color so wrong in the first place.
And many still had their jokes...
Fortunately, it seems the museum agrees.
The Musée Grévin told The Daily Beast:
“Dwayne Johnson is right, and we noticed it and will obviously remedy it as quickly as possible and send him new photos once completed.”
We'll be looking forward to that!
