Bernice King, others weigh in on controversial Pepsi protest ad

Something like this but the oil rig should look fun and cool- oil rigs should be

FYI Pepsi has already pulled the ad and apologized for failing to do anything resembling anything.

"Pepsi was trying to project a global message of unity, peace and understanding. We are pulling the content and halting any further roll-out", a statement read.

The narrator continues: "What doesn't make the news is this: We carry each other forward".

"How nice of Kendall Jenner to stop in the middle of her photo shoot to end social injustices by giving that cop a Pepsi", one Twitter user wrote.

He also mocked the protesters' bland signs, which included messages like "join the conversation". In the commercial, after catching the eye of a musician who is walking in the crowd, Kendall rips off her blonde wig, scrubs the lipstick from her lips, abandons her glamorous photo shoot, and joins the march. Jenner then goes to the front line and offers a police officer a can of Pepsi.

The whole world watched as the corporation released a protest-themed ad gone terribly wrong on Tuesday.

The advert saw the 21-year-old model defuse a protest simply by handing a police officer a can of Pepsi.

In 1989, Pepsi pulled a commercial starring Madonna after the controversy surrounding the singer's "Like A Prayer" video.

As a fitting response to Pepsi's dumb ad, Martin Luther King Jr's daughter Bernice King tweeted, "If only Daddy would have known about the power of #Pepsi".

At least for now, the ad - all two minutes, 39 seconds, is still viewable on Jenner's YouTube channel. While Jenner was initially "honored" to be the face of the ad, she later deleted all her tweets promoting it. The ad was accused of suggesting that protestors and police would get along better if the former were kinder and being insensitive with regard to the Black Lives Matter movement.

So Pepsi took down the ad and apologized to Kendall.
