People are outraged by this Pepsi ad starring Kendall Jenner

  • Published on Apr 5, 2017
  • People are outraged by Pepsi's new ad starring Kendall Jenner. We asked Pepsi about the blowback and they said, "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.” This isn't Pepsi's first ad controversy. In 2013 the company pulled an ad accused of racism and normalizing violence against women.

    After seeing this commercial I realize I'm not cool and attractive looking enough to "join the conversation" Too bad. I'll stick with Hanson's soda.

    In the 80s I saw a jeans commercial (winner of 1988 Cannes Festival) in which models in protest were seized by trousers, raided by water jets and dragged by troopers. No one protested. Currently, just open a can of soda in a march that people pisses off. People have become very stupid!

    The most egregious part of the video is when that no-talent-ass-hat, Kendal Gender, handed a black woman a weave. 💁🏾Oh no she didn't!!

    So Pepsi tried to "recreate" that famous photo from the 70s, where a girl put a flower in the gun during a protest. And people get mad why exactly? In this one we see all kinds of people united and police officers are friendly and just stand there. Secretly, they would like to join.
    I may don't get it cause I am Greek, but I think this is just one more time where Americans are bored and they found something to get offended by just to nag about something.

    God, why is everyone so stupid? Why do people protest against cops? And why do other people try to solve those problems that people have with the cops by making a stupid fucking ad about a rich stuck up bitch giving a can of diabetes to an on duty officer because they think that will sell their product more? Hmmmm maybe they didn't realize that both sides would get pissed off about this ad and now their up shit creek without a fuckin canoe. Pepsi go back to putting ads on peoples youtube videos so they can make fucking money. And the rest of you I couldn't care less what you do just please think before you do it. Alright I'm gonna go put a gun in my mouth and pull the trigger now.

    Black Lives Matter is a racist, terrorist organization suppressing black people under the guise of racial equality. White males are 80% more likely to be killed by a cop than black males. NEVER equate BLM thugs with true 1960s civil rights activists.

    It would have been better if the cop had pulled out his baton and given her a wooden shampoo. Additionally, I've never seen a smiling protester. In real life most protester are ugly faced women and men who don't bathe. The only thing they give to police is aggravation. Not soda.

    the tag line Live for now.. selfish and with no grounds in reality what so ever basically the entire Identity politics or rater the people pushing it would love this to be all their sheep's motto, and what kind of protest is this seams more like a festival rather than a march for a cause a carnival of sort, protests involve a lot more vandalism and punching "national-socialists"

    So she wipes cum off of her face and takes off her wig after a long night of sucking dick for attention while brown people watch on then she hands a cop a can of aids. Great ad.
    My Pepsi ad idea is Hitler kicks a baby through goal post at a football stadium and on the big screen in the background you see Osama Bin Laden making out with Caitlyn Jenner while pepsi rains down. That is how you market.

      Between Shades Of Black a black friend of mine owes his life to a white cop. He was being robbed.

You realize that if they were doing that they could be sued for discrimination right?

      Orix Blue 9 months ago

      Trever Stears A big part is because of "black lives matter", Kendall hands her wig to a black person so it's apparently "racist". Also she hands a can of Pepsi to a cop so BLM don't like that either. in the end Pepsi pulled the whole add campaign and apologised to BLM because they did not like it.
