There's A Reason Kendall Jenner Never Spoke Out About That Pepsi Controversy

"She was not trying to make excuses or be dramatic..."

So remember that whole Kendall Jenner Pepsi ad fiasco?

At the time, Pepsi issued a apology for the ad and Kendall's big sister Kim Kardashian spoke out about how "awful" Kendall felt about the whole thing.

However, Kendall herself never made an official statement and people weren't happy about that — to say the least:

kendall jenner is cancelled in my book. because, she hasn't issued an apology for her pepsi ad.

can y'all believe the nerve of kendall jenner for completely sweeping the ugly pepsi ad under the rug & not even attempting at an apology

kendall jenner: is apparently "devastated" at pepsi ad backlash also kendall jenner: issues no apology, pockets the money from it

In a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Kim gave some more insight about why Kendall kept quiet after the scandal:

We're not perfect, but you see these things in the media, like Kendall and [her Pepsi ad that was accused of trivializing Black Lives Matter], where I see her at home crying, but in the media she looks another way because she's not addressing it. I'm just like, "This is wrong. You need to speak up." She was like, "I don't ever want to show that footage of me crying." She was trying to not make excuses or be dramatic, but that was what she was going through at the time.

Kendall still has yet to say anything publicly about the incident, but I guess that gives us a little more insight into the whole thing for now...
