Kendall receives backlash for Pepsi ad

Kendall Jenner has recently found herself in the middle of some drama due to her involvement in Pepsi’s new advert. The advert sees the model and reality tv star handing a Pepsi to a police officer during a protest. The advert also features a track by Skip Marley. In the advert, Kendall leaves a photo shoot to join a protest where activists are carrying signs that read ‘love’ and ‘join the conversation’. 

Social media is going crazy claiming that it is an image of appropriation of the Black Lives Matter. Others are saying that the advert is co-opt of the resistance movement. Pepsi defended this by saying that:

 

“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.”

Here is the ad so that you can decide for yourself:
