Kendall Jenner 'Feels Horrible' Amid Pepsi Ad Controversy

"Clearly, we missed the mark and apologize", the company said in a Wednesday statement. "She's trying to do something good and I'm not pissed at her".

Seth Meyers and his "Late Night" crew filmed an alternative ending for the ad that had a black protestor, instead of Jenner, approach a riot police officer with a result that was not quite as touchy feely. Critics accused Pepsi of co-opting some of the serious issues protesters are challenging today.


The move came on the same day that Pepsi was forced to apologise for a controversial ad featuring Kendall Jenner. "Even though she had nothing to do with the production and the message of the campaign, she will be blamed for this since she is the face".

Pepsi initially supported the add, commenting, "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". "She chose to be a part of that ad. Pepsi needs to apologize to the protestors".


The supermodel and soda company were criticized for trivializing the Black Lives Matter movement with their protest commercial, prompting the clip to be pulled and an apology to be issued to poor Kenny. She tweeted a photo of her father being confronted by a police officer at a protest march and wrote: "If only Daddy would have known about the power of Pepsi". We are pulling the content and halting any further roll out. She definitely saw the commercial before it went live.

But while this controversy was embarrassing to Kendall, it likely won't hurt her career. Insulting on social networks, she loses every hour a few more followers. Now I'm going to share something that Seth Meyers did. "I do appreciate it but. please folkks do not do that for your own safety", he said. Though the scene seems to be set in the USA, filming actually took place in Bangkok.
