What Was Pepsi Thinking?: The Pepsi Commercial Controversy

There is a great deal of outrage towards the recent Pepsi commercial that was released. If you have not seen it, then you can watch it below.
Personally, after watching the commercial, I was disappointed in Pepsi. I was disappointed because they basically made it seem as though the current issues in the U.S., including police brutality, can be cured by a Pepsi. Even though they did not mean to portrayed this (or at least I assume). They should have at least apologized to the people they offended; instead they decided to only apologized to Kendall via Twitter.

  1. Personally, I think that it was a poor marketing gesture on Pepsi’s behalf. I do not feel that it was an intensional misstep but I do think that large corporations like Pepsi, must be mindful of the sensitive times that people of color are facing. Handing a police officer a can of Pepsi will no change the tensions in this country when it comes to race barriers. Kylie Jenner should have declined when presented this particular opportunity. Maybe should is ignorant to what is going on in America as well.
