Kendall Jenner's Pepsi ad has been pulled after a huge backlash on Twitter.
The soda company says, “Pepsi was trying to project a global message of unity, peace and understanding. Clearly we missed the mark, and we apologize. We did not intend to make light of any serious issue. We are pulling the content and halting any further roll out. We also apologize for putting Kendall Jenner in this position.”
This comes only a day after Pepsi defended the ad, saying, "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."
People did come together on social media -- to hate on the commercial, which had Kendall joining a street protest and giving a police officer a refreshing Pepsi. Critics called the spot "tone deaf" and "insensitive."
