Kendall Jenner Says Controversial Pepsi Ad Made Her Feel Like Her 'Life Is Over'


In a promo for 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' 10th anniversary special, the model addresses the controversy, saying, 'It feels like my life is over.'
Five months after Kendall Jenner landed in hot water due to the controversial Pepsi ad, the supermodel has now opened up about the scandal for the first time. The 21-year-old stunner dishes on her feelings about the difficult time in her life.

In a newly-released "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" promo for the show's 10th anniversary special, Kendall can be seen huddling on a bed with her sister Kim Kardashian and talking about the backfire. "It feels like my life is over," Kendall says.

Kim, who said that she was the "ringleader" of the family in a recent Interview magazine story, replies, "You made a mistake."



During her appearance on "Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen", Kim previously shared that the supermodel "felt awful" following the backlash after starring in the protest-themed commercial. "She totally understood at the end of the day, and she felt really awful for it," she explained. "She just wants to move on from it. I think anytime someone does anything, they don't have a bad intentions of doing it a certain way, especially because Kendall is so sensitive. She would never mean for anyone to perceive anything in a negative way."

Internet was enraged after the model and Pepsi used resistance protests to sell the soda in the infamous ad. Titled "Live for Now Moments Anthem", the ad saw Kendall giving a stone-faced cop a can of Pepsi and later uniting everyone.

People quickly took a jab at the commercial, saying that the imagery was tone deaf and evoked a widely circulated photo of Black Lives Matter protester Ieshia Evans last July in Louisiana. She was detained when she approached police at a demonstration in Baton Rouge. People also criticized the ad for making major issues such as police brutality among others seem like it could be solved with a can of Pepsi.
