Pepsi is facing backlash after dropping a protest-themed commercial starring Kendall Jenner on Tuesday.
One particular scene, which shows Kendall joining the protest and coming face-face with an officer to give him a Pepsi, has also drawn comparisons to the award-winning photograph taken during a Black Lives Matter protest of three cops in riot gear confronting a peaceful female protestor.
Pepsi has since released a statement about the commercial that reads, "This is a global ad that reflects people from different walks of life coming together in a spirit of harmony, and we think that's an important message to convey."
