Kendall Jenner Is Finally Breaking Her Silence On That Whole Pepsi Mess

"It feels like my life is over."

Posted on

Hey, remember when Kendall Jenner fixed America by giving a police officer an ice-cold, refreshing Pepsi®?


Back in April, Kendall starred in a highly controversial ad campaign for the brand, in which she left a modeling shoot to join some sort of rally, recreated a famous image from a Black Lives Matter protest, and proved we're all only one soda can away from ending police brutality.

She should have brought a Pepsi

The ad was quickly pulled, but not before receiving major backlash — even from the daughter of Martin Luther King Jr., Bernice King.

If only Daddy would have known about the power of #Pepsi.

At the time, many people called for Kendall to apologize, but the model never released any sort of statement on the issue.

Last month, Kim Kardashian tried to explain her sister's silence on the matter, but it...didn't do much to help:

I'm just like, "This is wrong. You need to speak up." [Kendall] 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.

But in the trailer for an upcoming episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kendall finally — and very, very briefly — opens up about the controversy.

"it feels like my life is over," she says.


"You made a mistake," Kim replies.


... And that's all E! is showing for now. It's a pretty short clip, but it's the first public acknowledgement she's ever really given, so....we'll take what we can get??


The full episode will probably go deeper into the issue, and it'll be interesting to hear what Kendall has to say about the whole fiasco after choosing to go silent for months. Cuz people haven't exactly forgotten...

Did Kendall ever even apologize for the ad? I'm genuinely asking,,,,,

people still consider kendall jenner relevant ?? y'all forget about that pepsi commercial that she didn't even apologize for ????

Well, at least it doesn't look like Kim's gonna let her off easy.
