Kendall Jenner's Pepsi Commercial Sparks Controversy for Appropriating the Resistance

Kendall Jenner's Pepsi Commercial Sparks Controversy for Appropriating the Resistance

Kendall Jenner‘s commercial for Pepsi was just released and the company is facing backlash as people feel the ad appropriates the resistance.

The ad is set to the tune of Skip Marley‘s song “Lions” and it features Kendall modeling in the doorway of a building while a protest marches down the street in front of her.

Kendall 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.
