People Are Seriously Pissed With Kendall Jenner’s New “Protest” Pepsi Ad

JUMP TO COMMENTS

On Tuesday, Kendall Jenner became the first model since Cindy Crawford in 1992 to have her own global advertising campaign for Pepsi.

Unfortunately for Jenner, what was likely meant to be a day of celebration quickly turned problematic as people from all political spectrums rejected the advertisement for its theme, which is essentially “Pepsi can stop protests and create peace.”

The ad is set around a protest march that Kendall Jenner happens to see as she poses for a photo shoot with a blonde wig on.

Inspired by her desire for equality and, hell, her love of Pepsi, Kendall rips off her wig and heads outside to join the rally.

Jenner makes her way through the crowd of protesters (not before giving a cute smirk to the boy who coaxed her outside to join the rally in the first place) and proceeds to grab an ice-cold Pepsi before handing it to one of the dozen or so police officers monitoring the rally.

The police officer takes a sip, looks at his fellow cop, and smiles – as if to say, “Hey, maybe we should protest too?”

And this is only the shortened version of the ad. There’s a ~2.5-minute special as well that features a woman in a hijab looking at photos and a man playing the cello.

People were also upset with a key moment in the ad – Jenner handing a Pepsi to a police officer – which many have pointed out has a striking resemblance to the iconic photo of Black Lives Matter protester Ieshia Evans being arrested.
