Remember the Pepsi advert that was branded a “clusterf**k of stereotypes” before being promptly yanked off air? Well, Kendall Jenner, the heroine of campaign, has finally detailed how she felt in the wake of the criticism via the medium of her sister, Kim Kardashian.
Speaking during an episode of ‘Watch What Happens Live’, Kim explained: “She totally understood at the end of the day, and she felt really awful for it and she just wants to move on.”
Don’t we all. Sadly, we don’t have a magic Pepsi can to hand to see us through the turbulent political times.
She added that Kendall would never purposefully try to hurt people. She was just, on this occasion, woefully ignorant.
“I think any time someone does anything they don’t have bad intentions of doing it a certain way,” Kim continued. “Especially [because] Kendall’s so sensitive. She would never mean for anyone to perceive anything in a negative way.”
“I didn’t see it until it had already gotten the attention, and so you obviously have a different perspective when everyone’s just saying something,” she said. “I think I was travelling, and I landed and I just saw all this stuff come up.”
Pepsi also personally apologised to Kendall for “putting her in this position”. The model’s life has indeed moved on, and she was most recently seen wearing a selection of ridiculously glamorous outfits in Cannes over the past week. No word yet on what “the conversation” actually was, nor whether Kendall ever intended to “join it”.
