@pepsi Kendall get an apology + a paycheck for willing participation. You know they signed her up for the ad thinking it would be a huge succes

Show Full Article Pepsi needs to apologize to the protestors. (Jenner has yet to comment on the ad.)
DeRay Mckesson, a leading voice for the Black Lives Matter movement, tweeted,   “It’s incredible that @pepsi apologized to Kendall. Giving her a big ol check to *voluntarily* join them in their disrespect? We also apologize for putting Kendall Jenner in this position.”
On   social media, however, many people were unswayed by the apology, and   the implication that Jenner was blameless. We did not intend to make light of any serious issue. On Tuesday the soda maker yanked   the advertisement from YouTube and apologized to both consumers and Jenner in response   to widespread criticism that the spot came off as a cynical, tone-deaf attempt to   cash in on a movement   of political resistance. https://t.co/60yOA4yTi6

It's incredible that @pepsi apologized to Kendall. Pepsi’s mea culpa for its poorly received protest-themed commercial starring Kendall Jenner has   yet to quell the online backlash. — John Grady (@thejohngrady) April 5, 2017

@pepsi Lol at them apologizing to Kendall. Watch whiteness work. You know Kris was in Pepsi HQ like "y'all told me this was going to end racism" pic.twitter.com/BITkeIBcw4

The fact that Pepsi even thought Kendall Jenner being the face of that ad was a good idea really says a lot about their perspective lol

Pepsi did the right thing by pulling that ad! — Joseph Kahn (@JosephKahn) April 5, 2017

Pepsi pulling ad + also apologizes to Kendall Jenner – I was under the impression that she's a grown ass woman who was present for filming. We are removing the content and halting any further rollout. — Makho Ndlovu (@makhondlovu) April 5, 2017

@pepsi Kendall chose to do it… but you're apologizing to her… pic.twitter.com/sf7gm9KGFa

Kendall Jenner was actually the perfect spokesmodel for that Pepsi spot. Positioning without a position is what the Kardashians do. @Pepsi and @KendallJenner filming an American protest commercial in Thailand is like South Africa filming a history commercial in Norway

They apologized to homegirl for what? “Clearly we missed the mark, and we apologize. The rest of us get the classic "we didn't intend to…" charade.Typical.🚮
