Kendall Jenner's Pepsi Commercial Ad Insults Protests Everywhere and Black Lives Matter

https://media1.s-nbcnews.com/j/newscms/2017_14/1955161/170405-pepsi-composite-cr-0807_14fe29bb715f07716b97c1c1bd550a82.nbcnews-ux-2880-1000.jpg 
Many are calling foul and condemning the Pepsi commercial featuring Kardashian clan member, Kendell Jenner. The ad clearly trivializes the efforts of many in wake of the many protests over police brutality and the senseless killings of Blacks over the last few years. What may be a bigger insult is that Pepsi released the ad on April 4th, the anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  The backlash even inspired Rev. Bernice King to voice her displeasure.




Here is the commercial in it's long form, which interesting enough has not be pulled from the internet but only on broadcast TV. It's followed by the responses to the ad.

More news...On Sunday 107.5 WBLS weekend host LaDawn Black announced she was moving on to a new opportunity and leaving the station. Black made a surprise return to radio this week at her old stomping grounds as a guest host on The AM Clique Morning Show this week on 92Q (WERQ-FM Baltimore). LaDawn hosted the very popular night show 'The Love Zone' until 2013 when she moved over to sister Adult R&B station Magic 95.9 as midday host.

iHeart's Power 99 (WUSL-FM Philadelphia) midday host Cappuchino exits the station. She's been with the station since 2012. 'Way Up with Angela Yee' is now heard on Power 99 as one of the 30 affiliates that carry the syndicated program across the country.

Questlove went to Instagram to celebrate the word “jawn” being recognized as an official word in the Merriam-Webster Dictionary. The dialectic term is native to his hometown. In Philadelphia and Eastern PA, “jawn” evolved as a variant of “joint,” originally denoting a place. “Jawn” has been used to describe almost anything that one need not or cannot give a specific name to. Suddenly jawn has become not cool to use.
