Kendall Jenner Was Paid To Protest For Pepsi And Twitter Hates Everything About It

Kendall Jenner Is An Actual Paid Protestor For Pepsi featureIn a new commercial that’s being almost universally condemned as “tone-deaf,” Kendall Jenner has set the stage for a social media firestorm. In a desperate bid to connect with the current youth culture of political protest and resistance, Pepsi had Kendall break away from a high fashion photo shoot, change her outfit and join a street march.

Kendall then becomes the protestors’ de facto leader as she breaks through the crowd to come face-to-face with a line of police. As a photographer in a hijab snaps pics, Kendall hands the officer a can of Pepsi and all of the world’s problems are solved.

Kendall and Pepsi got roasted for the ad on social media, as users mocked the ad’s simplistic worldview and the use of political protest as a backdrop to sell a product. The prominent, token-style placement of people of color in the ad wasn’t enough to stem the tide of criticism.

Watch Kendall’s ad below, plus see some of the most hilarious, savage and incisive tweets about the situation.

Are people being too sensitive about the ad?

Taylor Swift Shows Support for BFF Selena Gomez’s “Song of Summer” VMA Nomination

The 2015 MTV Video Music Awards are quickly approaching and a new category has been added. The new category, “Song of Summer” features all of the hottest songs from the summer and the winner will be chosen based on fan votes. Selena Gomez is among one of the nominees and BFF Taylor Swift has her back.

Despite having her own hit “Bad Blood” up for the same award, Taylor showed support for Selena in a tweet which Selena later retweeted.GoodForYouSelenaMTVNomDoesn’t look like Selena has returned the favor yet. However, we’re also sure she won’t be totally bummed if Taylor wins, since Selena appears as Taylor’s co-star and nemesis in the “Bad Blood” video.

Also nominated is Demi Lovato’s “Cool For Summer,” but we’re just guessing that we won’t be seeing Taylor or Selena tweeting about that one. Other nominees include 5 Seconds of Summer’s “She’s Kinda Hot” and Fifth Harmony’s “Worth it.” Check out the full list of nominees for this fan-vote category.

Who will you be voting for?
