Upon the reactions, the famous actor said that he would reach out to the authorities at the museum and take action to "update" the statue.

Stating that they made the sculpture based on the actor's photographs.
"Photographs can be misleading. Depending on the reflection of the light, the skin color may look very different," the museum said.
When the actor's wax statue was exhibited for the first time, comments such as "Why is his skin white and when will you fix it?" and "It looks like it was made with a social media filter" took place on social media.
