Kendall Jenner is in the new global Pepsi advert campaign.
It came out on Tuesday.
The advert shows Kendall leaving a shoot to join a protest (in which no one is angry), sipping a Pepsi and handing it to police officers opposite the protest (who are just standing there, no riot gear, no conflict). The police officer smiles, everyone is happy, Pepsi earns 'perfect society elixir' status.
It's utter, utter tripe.
She only goes along to the protest, fresh off the set, chasing a woke bae, which seems like the least principled start to a cause ever.
My favorite part of the French Revolution was when the sans-culottes gave Marie-Antoinette this look: 😏 https://t.co/wtotsWdUmR
She also approaches the officer for no discernable reason other than brand exposure. There's no conflict to resolve. The protesters are just vibeing to the upbeat choons like it's Coachella does Baton Rouge.

The police officer (who doesn't check the can for an IED or signs of anthrax, or assault Kendall for approaching) takes a sip, after a good ten seconds of the two eye f***ing the hell out of each other.
Cop, after drinking Pepsi: "Officer-involved shooting is a problematic euphemism promoting victim erasure."
