Kendall Jenner is under fire from the Twitterverse when the model unveiled her debut Pepsi ad on Tuesday.
The ad titled “Live For Now Moments Anthem” with the help of Skip Marley’s Lions quickly became the subject of criticism when the pvblic saw the throng of millennials marching through the streets, carrying signs such as “Join the Conversation.”
The ad was accused of appropriating Black Lives Matter, using it to sell soda.
“Live bolder, live louder, live for now,” reads the ad’s concluding message.
Well, the pvblic really didn’t want none of it.
So we should just give Putin & Assad & Trump a can of Pepsi & everything will be fine?
