The ad that has been called by netizens and critics as cultural appropriation and a clear manipulation of the social justice movement has been pulled from the airwaves.
“Pepsi was trying to project a global message of unity, peace, and understanding. Clearly we missed the mark and we apologize. We did not intend to make light of any serious issue. We are pulling the content and halting any further rollout. We also apologize for putting Kendall Jenner in this position.”
Kendall Jenner has yet to release anything in regards to the controversy with this ad.
