Kendall Jenner Sparks OUTRAGE in New Pepsi Protest Commercial
Kendall Jenner - Pepsi! Together in an ad! What could go wrong? Well unfortunately everything…People are downright angry at the model and some company for their latest ad. Turns out, they don’t think Pepsi can solve all the worlds problems. The 2 minute 30 section commercial starts out innocent enough with a cellist playing on a rooftop. Then the scene cuts to protestors. Kendall, who is blonde by the way, is in the middle of a photoshoot when she notices the commotion happening outside around her. Kendall rips off her wig and makeup, grabs a Pepsi and joins the protest. She hands one to a police officer, and suddenly the crowd bursts into cheers! Now the ad is definitely political, but did not strike the chord Pepsi had intended. People are furious with the campaign, and with Kendall, for downplaying, even glamorizing American protests. Oh, and for assuming that fixing the nations problems is as simple as a can of soda. This meme on twitter points out that protests are political statements, not a trending topic. “Protests are so hot right now,” it said. Now Kendall has not responded to the backlash, but Pepsi has issued a statement regarding the lackluster response. They’re defending their ad. Early this morning the soda company had this to say: “This is a global ad that reflects people from different walks of life coming together in a spirit of harmony, and we think it’s an important message to convey.” Ok, so now I want to hear from you. were you offended by the ad, or do you agree with Pepsi - the commercial is about bringing people together?
