For months now, the controversial Pepsi ad featuring Kendall Jenner has been causing debate on both sides of the spectrum. The commercial, which has been labeled as offensive, trivial and opportunistic, depicted a protest being quelled thanks to a can of soda. And, unsurprisingly, Pepsi has since pulled the ad and apologized.
However, one person has remained very tight-lipped about the whole furor: its star, Kendall Jenner. At long last, though, the 21-year-old reality TV star has responded to the controversy. And her take on the matter may raise a few eyebrows…
That ad and the ensuing fallout doesn’t mark the first time that a Kardashian or Jenner family member has been in hot water, though. Thanks in part to their relationship scandals and outré photoshoots, few modern-day pop culture figures can hold a candle to Kim, Khloé, Kourtney and their sisters when it comes to generating furor.
And let’s face it, part of their success stems from their wild antics. Even before E! first aired Keeping Up with the Kardashians in 2007, Kim Kardashian already had her own sex tape with ex-boyfriend Ray J surface. Indeed, that seemed to be the beginning of all the hubbub that now surrounds the socialite.
