Model and Kardashian-clan socialite Kendall Jenner has starred in a new Pepsi ad that has spawned outrage for its tasteless exploitation of the cultural divide.
The ad portrays Jenner leaving a photo shoot to wade through a crowd of strangely well-behaved protesters, only to give an armed policeman a can of Pepsi. The policeman drinks the soda to a chorus of cheers.
As silly and cynical as the commercial may be, liberals on Twitter were disturbingly quick to paint the police officer as the “bad guy” in the video, tweeting memes and photos showing Hitler and other despotic figures of violence given Pepsi.
The subtext is not hard to define – liberals aren’t satisfied with the Pepsi-Cola corporation acknowledging protests and calling for unity. Instead, they would be more comfortable if policemen were portrayed as Hitler-like devils.
