The advert shows Kendall ending a stand-off between protesters and police with a can of Pepsi.

Kendall Jenner’s managed to annoy most of the world with her latest project – an advert for Pepsi – after people have accused the ad of making light of the issues with police brutality and racial tensions in the USA.

People hit back on Twitter after the ad dropped last night, which sees Kendall ending a stand-off between police and protesters in the street by offering one of the officers a can of Pepsi.

Fans on Twitter were quick to spot the comparison between that and the real moment protester Ieshia Evans stood up to a line of armed police during a Black Lives Matter demonstration, which ended with her getting arrested. 

Twitter was awash with people mocking the advert for cashing in on an important movement: 

Following the backlash, Pepsi released a statement to AdWeek, reading, “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.”
