Kendall Jenner Still Doesn’t Know What She Did Wrong in Pepsi Commercial

Fear no longer, America. Kendall Jenner has opened up about that Pepsi commercial and we can now proceed with our lives without constantly wondering how Kendall is doing.

During Sunday’s premiere of Keeping Up With The Kardashians (Nine Months Later), Jenner’s reaction to the backlash was captured by cameras for millions to see.

For those that don’t recall, Jenner cured the world’s problems with Pepsi and people were like, “that’s not how this works.” Pepsi ended up pulling the commercial and Jenner was criticized for doing the commercial in the first place.

Here’s what Jenner had to say on the episode (via Cosmopolitan):

“When I first got this offer, I mean, it’s a huge company … the people I was following were so iconic and amazing….to get something like that, it was so exciting. And I trusted everyone, I trusted the teams. But after I saw the reaction and I read what people had to say about it, I most definitely saw what went wrong. I was so stuck and I really didn’t know what to do that I completely shut down.”

The only Pepsi commercial that stands out as “iconic and amazing” to me is that Britney Spears one. And it’s only iconic and amazing because I was a teenager and Britney Spears was hot. And let this be a lesson to you, Kendall. Read the script for yourself or watch the playback instead of trusting others.

“I would never purposely hurt someone, ever…if I knew that this was gonna be the outcome, I would have never done something like this. But you don’t know when you’re in the moment…I just felt so fucking stupid. The fact that I would offend other people or hurt other people was definitely not the intent. And that’s what got me the most. Is that I would have ever made anyone else upset.”

Not buying this excuse considering that a month later she thought it was a good idea to put images of herself over pictures of 2Pac and Biggie in order sell t-shirts. Like, you didn’t know that was going to upset people as well?

For the rest of the episode, the Kardashian clan felt sorry for Kendall, told her that she would be a better person for it, blamed others, and made her out to be a sympathetic figure.

Notice she didn’t actually apologize for the commercial or admit it was a mistake. She apologized for the backlash and how she feels bad for hurting others.

Have a Pepsi, Kendall.
