A recent Pepsi commercial with Kendall Jenner is recieving massive backlash for its wrongful stance on Police Brutality and racism. In the advertisment, despite being armed with only one can of Pepsi, Kendall succesfully breaks up an argument between the police and group of protestors simply through the process of handing over a a can of an ice cold drink to an officer.

The group of protestors are very diverse group each doing various odd acts. There are  girls in hijabs, black guys with glasses making peace signs, and trendy-looking lesbians holding signs that say things like “Join the conversation!” Kendall leaves her modeling shoot, takes off her wig, and joins the crowd.  After the riot police come to the scene, Kendall saves the day. Through her handing over the Pepsi, the cops are happy to leave the protestors alone and the crowd goes wild. Despite not doing too much, Kendall saved the day.

 

Update: As of 3 PM on April 5th, Pepsi has pulled the advertisement after the backlash it recieved on Twitter. Pepsi stated that the commercial “missed the mark.”

Here are some of the Tweets that may have prompted Pepsi’s decision: Screen Shot 2017-04-05 at 3.55.08 PM
