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.”
