Kendall Jenner & Pepsi Ripped Over New Ad: "Those Protestors Would've Been Dr. Pepper Sprayed" [Vide

Reality TV star Kendall Jenner and soda giant Pepsi are receiving massive backlash. The two powerhouses have felt the wrath of angry social media users over a new protest commercial.

The new ad shows Jenner using a Pepsi can to help fuel a peaceful protest.

The ad shows Jenner, 21, ditching her high-fashion photo shoot to join the masses and then appearing to bring an end to the protest by sharing a Pepsi with a police officer. When the officer drinks the Pepsi, the crowd erupts in applause. A description of the ad on Pepsi Global's YouTube channel describes the commercial as "a short film about the moments when we decide to let go, choose to act, follow our passion and nothing holds us back."

The ad immediately sparked widespread outrage from social media users over Pepsi's bad taste in jacking the Black Lives Matter movement for profits.




























Pepsi has since come forward to defend its controversial ad.

A Pepsi spokesperson said in an emailed statement: "This is a global ad that reflects people from different walks of life coming together in a spirit of harmony, and we think that's an important message to convey." (CNBC)
