On Tuesday, April 4th evening, the Pepsi launched a new commerical on Youtube, which draw many controversial commends. The commercial appears to draw inspiration from the countless marches and protests that have taken place recently, with one of the most popular celebrity, Kendall Jenner as the main figure, who handing a police office a can of Pepsi to solve the social issue.
Whether or not this commercial is “offensive” is up for debate, but it’s certainly one of the most cynical ads that has ever appeared on Internet.
Twitter and other social media platform have used the hashtag #KendallJennerpepsi frequently to discuss the topic. Some people really get mad about the message in the commercial, and some other think there is nothing wrong with it. Some of the social media users also think that the commercial is actually a successful move to draw attention. Some even think that the crowd should not focus on this meaningless argument, but more focus on the real major issue happen in our world. Some tones are very mad, and some are using humor to laugh about that.
It’s interesting that how one hashtag can involve so many different thought on it.
There was nothing wrong with the commercial #KendallJennerpepsi
