Pepsi announced today that they’re pulling their Kendall Jenner protest ad after all the backlash it received.
You’ve probably seen the ad already, which depicts protesters marching with inoffensive signs like “Peace,” “Love,” and “Join the Conversation.” It also features Jenner giving a cop a Pepsi.
The ad received a lot of condemnation and backlash. Even Bernice King had something to say about it:

Well, Pepsi has officially pulled the ad, saying they “clearly missed the mark” and offering an apology:
