Apart from seeing Pepsi, I didn't get the message. I also do not understand, after reading the Elle magazine piece, how Pepsi is making fun of protests.

Pepsi is taking some heat on social media and across the internet for its new ad that shows supermodel/reality TV star Kendall Jenner walking off a modeling shoot to join a nondescript peace march. Some critics are accusing the brand of making light of political protests.

Yikes... Protests are serious business

Blacks hijacked the meaning behind the video making it about their cause.. when the video is about unity and equality for all... blacks think they are the only one oppressed in the USA, when Latins, Homosexuals, Muslims are all under attack. NOTE to Blacks.. it's not always about you.. get a life..

Oh yeah, Meanwhile in Canada :

Here's the so-called 'controversial' Pepsi commercial...

Personally, I found it boring and uninspired and don't really see what all the fuss is about.

Are you saying that Asian Parents don't adopt asian babies? Or that Asian parents are incapable of raising asian babies?

Racist,

Is Kendall Jenner one of these new-age flakes who has never done anything, and is simply famous for being famous?

I've never heard of her.

The Google says she is a model and television personality. She would appeal to the teen crowd, I suspect. Hence, her involvement with Petsi.

Is it just me, or do young people nowadays WANT to be outraged? Almost to the point where it gives them a sense of fulfillment and joy?

Perhaps giving them an excuse to put their own shiftless lives on hold for the moment, so they can point their hypocritical, self-righteous fingers at others.

Perhaps one of you can explain it better than I'm doing. But do you kind of understand where I'm coming from?

Nope. It only seems that way because my generation has had access to the internet at a younger age than your generation. People are the same, methods of communication have evolved since you guys were our age.

Or maybe this generation has had it grilled into them since elementary school that 'tolerance is a virtue'...to the point where the pendulum has swung so far the other way, that they themselves are now the intolerant ones...intolerant of free speech, free expression...etc.

(Sorry. Just thinking out loud here)

We are but a lot of the older guys think the same. Hence why baby boomers or gen-xers make these laws we dont agree with. Were on the cusp of taking over, this world is your generation's product.

Johnnny,

Would you not agree that 'seeing outrage around every corner' is a sad reflection of a cheated and misguided generation? It's a truly awful way to live in my opinion.

"Majority of the backlash was due to the scene with Kendall handing a Pepsi to the officer. If you look on social media the focus is more so on police brutality and recent protest, not only with blacks, but also latinos, muslims, LGBTQ, etc. The people who disliked the video aren't just blacks, far from it actually. Though I understood what they were trying to do, if you think about it, the commercial isn't about unity in equality for all, its just them saying "Hey kids! Pepsi is a symbol for unity and equality! Go buy some because protests are sooo in right now!"

Of course this is just my take on it. I saw the video without knowing about the backlash and I just laughed because I thought it looked ridiculous and poorly executed. I do think that a lot of people were over-reacting and I suspect the fact that Kendall Jenner starring (which I also don't understand given the supposed purpose behind the video, there are so many other role models to choose from) had something to do with it
."

Interesting take..

Good God is the world coming to an end over a Pepsi Ad?
I prefer Pepsi and it will make no difference to me at all.
Surely there are more things to get upset about than this
Little kids were murdered, gassed by their own government
and the people are upset about a Pepsi Ad is there something
wrong with this picture

"there is no such thing as bad publicity"

Apart from the fact that it's pretty dumb to think Pepsi is going to solve political problems, I think the issue here is the 'white person will save us'.

At least that Budweiser commercial was believable.

Thanks for telling us what "blacks think." I didn't know you were such an expert on the subject.

Not hard to see him sitting on the porch of the general store with the other good ol' boys, holding forth with deep insight and expertise on n*****s and what they think, do, and are.

The forum is filled with his comments denigrating all types of minorities. A few key words in the forum search engine turns up a plethora of his past comments.

As long as he gives the cop a Pepsi, he'll be OK.
