Unless you live under a rock, you should be well aware by now that Idris Elba is the sexiest man alive. If you don't believe us, take People magazine's word for it. They granted him with this greatest award known to mankind, and rightfully so! He's gorgeous, talented, and obviously, sexy. How many times can I say sexy when referencing Idris Elba? I'm assuming I can say it an infinite amount of times.
So, when you're a famously gorgeous actor, such as Idris, it's only a matter of time before someone makes a doll to look like you. Right? That's a totally normal byproduct of being a celebrity, right?
British doll manufacturer, Emperis, unveiled a replica doll that is meant to look like Idris Elba and, well, it looks nothing like him.
I mean truly, it's a travesty. And since this is 2018, the internet had some thoughts about this supposed "Idris Elba" doll.
Are you ready to see what it looks like?
This doll is supposed to be Idris? Somebody getting fired. https://t.co/VsFXlmRibW— Courtney (@Courtney)1542083562.0
Straight up disrespectful.

Real talk. Who designed this?
Is this really supposed to be a figure of Idris Elba? Have they ever seen Idris? Have they ever seen a human? https://t.co/D3AJSzAsoX— Martin S Dixon 💙 ART CALLUX (@Martin S Dixon 💙 ART CALLUX)1542144731.0
Twitter users were also quick to call out people who they thought the doll actually liked like.Because it sure as heck doesn't look like Idris Elba.
The snapping turtle is very specific, but it works.
This doll looks like Idris Elba mixed with Jafar and a snapping turtle. https://t.co/X7eU3pWOOj— NLE Chakra (@NLE Chakra)1542135815.0
The GID and meme reaction here is on point!We're all confused. And we're all waiting for answers.
Maybe Idris Elba will buy himself a doll?

You would think somewhere along the process somebody would point out that this doll looks nothing like the actor.

There's no denying that this doll is a true fail. But it looks like it could be worse.

You know there has to be one person out there who thinks this doll does a great job looking like Idris Elba.Whoever that person is... They are wrong. Gravely wrong.
What does Idris think?

The internet has spoken.And the verdict is: This still looks nothing like Idris Elba.
Honestly though, it's all pretty hilarious.Twitter never lets down when it comes to reactions.
Also, why does the doll resemble Jafar?
