Last week, Aaliyah was immortalized with a wax figure at Madame Tussauds Museum in Las Vegas and fans already began to touch and deface the figure.

Aaliyah’s team posted on the late singer’s Twitter account a fan putting lip gloss on the statue with a caption that reads “respect”. See post below:

The team also stated, “We ask kindly that anyone visiting the Aaliyah wax figure @TussaudsVegas please treat it with respect, this has been a lot of years of hard work by her fans petitioning and her family’s @RAD_6 support!  Below is inappropriate and unacceptable #TeamAaliyah.”

The wax figure is from Aaliyah’s ‘Try Again’ music video. This past Sunday, made 18 years since Aaliyah passed away in a plane crash.
