Twitter takes Pepsi to task over tone-deaf Kendall Jenner ad

Here’s an idea that actually saw the light of day: Appropriate Black Lives Matter marches across the U.S., add in Kendall Jenner pulling off a blonde wig to join in on the fun and break the race barrier by having the model hand a cop dressed in riot gear a soothing can of corporate cola. The crowd cheers!



That was the ad released by Pepsi on Tuesday, and Twitter quickly took the giant beverage company to task.





It's notable that a frame of Jenner facing off with a police officer seems to mimic the iconic photo of Black Lives Matter protester Leshia Evans being arrested.
