How an Advertisement for Pepsi Featuring Kendall Jenner Sparked Widespread Criticism?

To this day, Kendall Jenner maintains a large fan base on many social media platforms. The famous person is the second youngest of Caitlyn’s and Kris’s ten children.

The Boys decided to develop a parody of Kendall’s contentious Pepsi ad, and the reality star became a trending topic on Twitter while The Kardashians was a hit on Hulu.

Less than 48 hours after its first distribution, the corporation pulled the commercial off the air and the internet in the face of widespread backlash.

Some on social media said the ad’s objective was to sell soda by making light of the Black Lives Matter movement. Pepsi apologized and withdrew the ad.

Kendall’s Pepsi ad quickly gained popularity as multiple people made similar comments.

The American supermodel Kendall Jenner was the subject of criticism after her appearance in a Pepsi campaign in 2017.

There’s a scene in the commercial when Jenner abandons a photo shoot to join a group of protesters marching down the street; she then offers a police officer a can of Pepsi as the crowd cheers the seeming alliance between the police and the demonstrators.

A brand’s foray into public controversy could be compared to the experiments of a crazy scientist. The end result is frequently a mystery.

Every day, we are barraged by thousands of commercials across various media (television, newspapers, online platforms, billboards, etc.).

However, advertisements that spark debate tend to leave a more indelible impression.

YouGov BrandIndex found that immediately following the Jenner ad, Pepsi’s Purchase Consideration score with millennials dropped from 27% to 24%.

After the advertisement was taken down, Google Trends data revealed that interest in the name Kent returned to its pre-advertising levels.

Black anti-police-violence demonstrators felt that a Pepsi commercial starring American supermodel Kendall Jenner 2017 was disrespectful.

However, the number of searches for Tanishq nearly doubled after the site was taken down. It’s possible that the controversy surrounding Tanishq has improved the company’s reputation among consumers and retailers alike.

The terrible 2017 Pepsi ad is still fresh in the minds of many fans. Kendall, along with the rest of the protesters, cheerfully approaches the police and offers them a Pepsi as a “peace pact” in the commercial.

Inevitably, the advertisement was criticized for its insensitivity and lack of nuance.

Despite the fact that many people have moved on, Kendall is still frequently held responsible for the current political turmoil and climate of social unfairness.

With the support of NBC, this scandal became Kendall’s most famous to date; yet, despite attempts to portray a global coming-together over a Coke, the opposite was true.
