Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's game plan? Get his wax figure sorted.

The Fast and Furious actor is weighing in after a Paris wax museum debuted a statue that is meant to be in its likeness, but that many people have called out for, among other issues, using a much lighter skin tone. In fact Dwayne, who is Black in Samoan, reposted a video from James Andre Jefferson Jr.. in which the comedian joked that the figure "turned The Rock into an albino rock."

For his part, the Moana star expressed his appreciation for James' roast of the figure, while also addressing the controversy.

"I knew my boy @jamesjeffersonj had this Rock wax statue in his roasting crosshairs," the 51-year-old captioned his Oct. 22 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! News has reached out to the Grévin Museum for comment but has not yet heard back.
