Pepsi pulled its commercial featuring Kendall Jenner after many complained it was offensive. The ad came under fire because it was very like a Black Lives Matter protest and the model gets the two sides to get along when she gives a cop a Pepsi.
The company released a statement saying, "Pepsi was trying to project a global a message of unity, peace and understanding. Clearly, we missed the mark, and we apologize.”
Pepsi added “We did not intend to make light of any serious issue. We are pulling the content and halting any further rollout.”
Also, "We also apologize for putting Kendall Jenner in this position.”
Among those who slammed the ad was MLK’s daughter Bernice King who tweeted “If only daddy knew about the power of Pepsi" while sharing a photograph of her iconic father clashing with police on the front-line of a protest.
