Back in April, Kendall Jenner’s debut advert for Pepsi generated serious backlash for her and the soda company. Pepsi was criticized for the ‘insensitive’ commercial, with people accusing them of exploiting the Black Lives Matter movement and for casting a white model in the role of a peacemaker between protesters and the police
The Soda company apologized for the infamous advert and for putting Kendal, who was also called out on social media for accepting the ad, in such a controversial position.
The model has spoken put for the first time in an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians which aired on Sunday night. She said;
“I just feel really, really bad. I feel really bad that anyone was ever offended. I feel really bad that this was taken such a wrong way and I genuinely feel like s–t. I have no idea how I’m gonna bounce back from it.”
“I would never purposely hurt someone ever. I would, obviously, if I knew this was gonna be the outcome I would have never done something like this. But you don’t know when you’re in the moment, and like, it was the most…like it was…like it was so…like I just felt so f–king stupid. The fact that I would offend other people or hurt other people was definitely not my intent and that’s what got me the most, is that I would ever make anyone else upset.”
