Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson responded to viral online memes that compared his wax figure in a Paris museum to the Proctor & Gamble mascot Mr. Clean.
In an Instagram post, Dwayne said his team contacted the Grévin Museum to “request changes” after the wax figure was mercilessly mocked by comedians and social media users.
Specifically, Johnson asked the museum to darken the wax statue’s skin tone so it more accurately depicts his skin tone.
Johnson posted a video of comedian James Andre Jefferson Jr. roasting the wax statue on his Instagram page. Jefferson said The Rock’s wax figure looked more like “a pebble.”
“They done turned The Rock into a vinyl rock,” Jefferson joked. “Is this how y’all felt when you lost the Little Mermaid?”
Johnson 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.”
The museum told Deadline in a statement that it would “remedy” the waxwork as soon as possible.
