Kendall Jenner’s new Pepsi commercial — in which she joins a protest or rally of some sort and then hands a cop a can of soda — is being torn to shreds online.
The commercial’s faced immediate backlash since being released on Tuesday, with many labeling it “tone-deaf,” a “complete disaster” or much worse. Have a look for yourself …
The spot is getting dragged partly because people are confused about what it’s supposedly depicting, and partly because others simply despise it.

So you mean to tell me this whole time all we had to do was offer a cop a Pepsi and they wouldn't kill unarmed Blacks during routine stops? pic.twitter.com/pvqNEpLTz6
