Pepsi just may have won the title for the most tone-deaf ad, ever. In a new spot, Kylie Jenner settles a volatile standoff by handing cops a Pepsi.
This really happened. Police brutality thwarted by a cold can of Pepsi.

Bruh, there’s even a brown woman in what looks like a hijab taking photos.
Needless to say, the Internet is absolutely frying Pepsi right now. Think about how many people saw this spot without anyone saying loudly enough, “This may be insensitive.” Or, “Black Lives Matter issues may not be solvable via a soft drink.” Or, “People may not think ‘stop police brutality’ when they see Kendall F*cking Jenner.”
Also, the spot dropped on the anniversary of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s ASSASSINATION.
Peep the reactions below and on the flip. Expect an apology, soon.

This Pepsi ad is so unrealistic. Those protesters would have been Dr. Pepper Sprayed. https://t.co/oNjjtm6eFu
