Lance Armstrong has been disqualified, again. Now that Armstrong has officially confirmed that he cheated, using various doping techniques to win his cycling titles, he's losing his titles, again. Now he is losing them at some California wax museums, TMZ reported on Sunday.

A representative from Madame Tussauds Hollywood said that they will not melt down Lance Armstrong's wax statue, despite his confession he cheated during his career. However, while his wax statue will remain on display, they will reword the caption on the exhibit to remove any reference to "seven world titles."

In addition, the new display will add text that will address the doping scandal that has now -- and finally -- destroyed Armstrong's once historic legacy.

It's unclear if other Madame Tussauds sites around the world will take similar action. The London museum is the main Madame Tussauds, with branches in cities around the world, including the Hollywood branch.

To be honest, though, Madame Tussauds' change is mild, compared to the actions taken at the Wax Museum at Fisherman's Wharf. They have already changed his nameplate. It now reads "Disqualified Seven-Time Winner of le Tour de France."
