Madonna's Unsurprising Opinion On Kendall Jenner's Pepsi Ad

With a clear divide between the protesters and the police, Jenner storms through the crowd, swiftly picks up a Pepsi can and hands it to a stern looking officer who can't help but smile with 12 ounces of carbonated liquid gold in his hand.

The commercial featured a model, Jenner, distracted by a peace protest that Twitter users have speculated is supposed to represent the Black Lives Matter movement; however, since this is never explicitly stated, it's unclear as to if Pepsi is even taking a stand to promote its message.

Madonna threw shade at Pepsi in a series of Instagram posts on Thursday.

An insider explained: "She has been very upset".

"Side Note: My Pepsi commercial was pulled 30 years ago because I was kissing a black saint!" But that doesn't mean the world has forgotten about that other PR disaster Pepsi dealt with earlier this month.

Trump drops China bashing during warm Xi summit
President Xi Jinping said both sides should make full use of the soon-to-be-established dialogue between the joint staffs of the two countries' armed forces.

The "behind the scenes" video, along with the original ad, has disappeared from Pepsi's website and YouTube channel.

Kendall Jenner is reportedly struggling to get over the failed launch of her disastrous Pepsi ad campaign - and the internet isn't making it easy.

Pepsi even canceled Madonna's endorsement deal to make sure people didn't view Madonna's own clips as part of the Pepsi marketing strategy.

A source told People that Kendall Jenner is not at all happy about the ad controversy that dragged her name and reputation in it. But, the commercial completely missed the mark and backfired into an insulting trivialization of protests and risks people of color take to stand up for themselves.

One of the actors in the commercial told People most of the extras in the ad weren't even from the US, and had no idea about the significance of its message. Madonna vs Kendall Jenner.
