Kendall Jenner’s infamous Pepsi ad is gaining traction once again due to the Black Lives Matter protests in the US.
The 2017 ad showed Jenner offering a can of Pepsi to a police officer in the middle of a protest as a peace offering. The officer then opened it and took a sip, and the crowd cheered wildly. The ad was dragged by social media users then for trivializing real social issues for a corporate cause.
As there are many actual demonstrations taking place recently, people are revisiting the commercial and questioning where Jenner had been when several of the protests were going on.
“Protestors in Beverly Hills? Holy s**t @KendallJenner, this is your time to shine with your Pepsi, sweetie,” one Twitter user joked. “Where is Kendall Jenner with the Pepsi when we need her the most?” another user asked.
Check out the jokes over Jenner’s resurfaced ad.

I can’t believe Pepsi thought Kendall Jenner giving a cop a Pepsi would make them reconsider killing ppl This commercial proved how privileged white ppl are. They think it’s up to them who gets to live and who doesn’t. https://t.co/tQXj5C8zzw— ItGIRL (@AaliyahJay) May 28, 2020
