Fans also flooded social media with their thoughts on the “white-washed” wax figure of the actor, who was born to a Black Nova Scotian father and Samoan mother.
“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,” Johnson wrote on.
