Kendall Jenner's tone-deaf soda ad actually made people like Pepsi more

In a teaser for the next episode of Season 13 of The Incredible Kardashian Family, the young woman does not hide her anguish: she is afraid that her latest collection of clothes in collaboration with her younger sister, Kendall + Kylie, Bad reviews.

Kendall Jenner and A$AP Rocky are getting cozy in the desert.

"Generally speaking, the bigger the celebrity, the more they have the ability to say no to things", says Gil Eyal, CEO and founder of marketing firm HYPR, who has worked with hundreds of celebrities and brands, including Pepsi (but not the Kardashians).

The Pepsi spot, which the company debuted on April 4, saw Jenner joining a protest, and ultimately offering a can of Pepsi to a gruff police officer as a peace offering.

In 2014, Gilliam received playing time in 14 games after multiple injuries affected the offensive linemen. The 6-foot-5, 315-pound Gilliam has started 29 games over the last two seasons, mostly at right tackle.

According to that report, Kendall "was hanging out alone on a corner couch in the VIP area with Hailey Baldwin and staring at her phone". I think Pepsi's main point was to show that we are all people.

So should Kendall and Pepsi be shamed for their attempt? Nah.

If the global embarrassment and brand damage from Pepsi's ill-conceived Kendall Jenner ad wasn't bad enough, now comes news that police in the U.S. aren't happy how they were depicted and are threatening legal action. The model has returned to social media for the first time in more than a week and there was no mention, whatsoever, of her incredibly tone-deaf Pepsi commercial. She is co-hosting a party thrown by the dating app Bumble, in Rancho Mirage.

"There are consequences for outlets that get sneaky - Kendall will be immediately pulled from the interview and the outlet will forever be persona non grata".

The ball took a touch before grasping his fifth goal of the football season right into the bottom corner from close range. The Tunisia global found the bottom corner of Darren Randolph's goal directly with a corner to draw his side level.

The ad was misguided, but not mean-spirited, and both Pepsi and Kendall seem duly chastised for their ignorance.

In its apology, Pepsi also admitted that they missed the mark on this commercial. The ad is only 2 minutes and 39 seconds long and even in that small amount of time Pepsi was able to mock multiple movements and offend multiple people, all while making light of series situations many of us are now facing. The creation of the advertisement itself shows how far removed wealthy, white individuals are from the reality of issues such as Black Lives Matter; in the name of profit, corporations will approve the manipulation of political movements without understanding them.

Jenner is yet to comment.

It is also a statement on how CONCACAF - once synonymous with corruption - has cleaned house, according to Montagliani. Canada has only ever qualified for one men's World Cup - in 1986. "I would assume this would be the same", he said.
