Kendall Jenner is the star of Pepsi‘s new commercial and the new ad has upset some fans.
The 21-year-old model is seen joining the resistance and handing a can of Pepsi to a cop, which causes the crowd to erupt in cheers. Fans feel that the commercial is appropriating the resistance.
The commercial starts off with Kendall modeling in the doorway of a building while a protest marches past her. She decides that she wants to join the resistance and rips her blonde wig off, wipes her makeup off her face, and then walks into the street to march with the people. She then grabs a can of Pepsi and walks over to the line of policeman and hands one to a cop.
The cop then pops open the can and takes a sip, which causes the crowd to erupt in cheers. “Live bolder, live louder, live for now,” is then shown on the screen before the commercial ends.
Kendall approaching the line of police has been compared to the photo of protestor Ieshia Evans approaching the police during a Black Lives Matter protest in 2016. She was arrested though, and Kendall is not.
