One group saw an out-of-touch Hollywood celebrity and corporation glorifying a liberal agenda.
Another saw an out-of-touch Hollywood celebrity and corporation profiting from the fight for civil, LGBTQ and immigrant rights.
Both of them agreed: Kendall Jenner’s new Pepsi ad is complete garbage.
Good on you Pepsi, you managed to bring Liberals & Conservatives together in a WTF were they thinking moment. 😒

In case you missed it, Pepsi released a new commercial where, um, a guy plays a cello and then nods at Kendall Jenner in the middle of a protest and then she stops modeling to give a police officer a soda and then people cheer … or something.
This pretty much sums it up.
Conservatives complained about it.
The Pepsi commercial is proof that corporations and popular media is completely on the side of the Left
Yet Liberals believe they’re rebels

Liberals complained about it.
And so, for a few brief moments, the country came together.
Pepsi did the one thing no one else could do… unite liberals and conservatives on an issue.

Ahh for one day, liberals, Democrats, Republicans and conservatives alike can ALL agree that the Pepsi commercial was trash.

Just as Obama said, there’s not a liberal America and a conservative America; there’s the United States of America.
And they all think Kendall Jenner and Pepsi shouldn’t exploit the very pressing problems facing this country to make a profit.
