Pepsi faced significant backlash after releasing its ad, which starred Kendall Jenner walking through a protest with a can of Pepsi that she handed to a police officer as a way to resolve the conflict.

After many critics, including Madonna, pointed a finger at the Pepsi ad featuring Kendall Jenner and said it's not nice to use protests to sell products, Pepsi pulled the ad.

Over the weekend, Saturday Night Live comedians portrayed a clueless Jenner anxious to film the Pepsi ad, even as an increasingly nervous director tried to do a last-minute rewrite after talking with family members and a "black neighbor". In fact, Madonna herself was the victim of Pepsi pulling a 1989 commercial featuring the "Material Girl" singer almost 30 years ago after the controversy surrounding the "Like A Prayer" music video.

"She has been very upset", the source said. They noted the importance of not being in touch with current affairs and the audience as it may sometimes appear as insensitivity for some just like what happened to Pepsi's ad. By some estimations, the commercial was seen by 250 million viewers in more than 40 countries, according to People magazine.

The vote will allow the state to be considered for future tournament hosting, including the 2017-18 season. It said it will resume the boycott if legislators change state laws again, which could very well happen.


Kendall Jenner is leaning on the support from her family following a Pepsi commercial controversy.

The production company ThirtyRev wanted to teach Pepsi how to make a protest video.

A source told People that Kendall Jenner is not at all happy about the ad controversy that dragged her name and reputation in it. News, as soon as the commercial was aired, it didn't take long for Twitter users to speculate and compare the frame of Kendall coming face-to-face with an officer.

Meanwhile, as per Toronto Sun, the actors in the commercial said that most of the extras in the ad weren't even from the US.
