Pepsi dropped a new commercial featuring Kendall Jenner, but just about 24 hours after they released it, they had to pull it because of backlash. The commercial shows a protest, nearby which Kendall Jenner has a modeling shoot. She leaves the shoot, grabs a Pepsi, and walks up to the police officers standing opposite the protest and hands an officer the can.

Once the officer drinks the Pepsi, everything is fixed and the protesters rejoice. The backlash against the commercial was swift and relentless, with people noting similarities between imagery in the commercial and a lot of images from actual Black Lives Matter protests.
