Which PR Crisis was More Damaging - Pepsi or United?

Pepsi, Sean Spicer, United Airlines: The best #OffendEveryoneIn4Words tweets

Kendall Jenner's Pepsi ad featuring her somehow stopping a protest by simply handing a policeman a Pepsi has been eviscerated by the public, including many Hollywood figures and late-night programs.

Kendall Jenner clearly has the ability to reach a significant amount of people, primarily those of the young and impressionable variety. "Blame her management." Of course, whether Baldwin knows it or not, her management is mother Kris Jenner.

2- I remember when my daughter Ireland and Kendall were little kids in school.

Borrowing images from the Black Lives Matter movement, the ad was widely accused of hollowing out, commodifying, and trivialising social justice movements to sell soft drinks and undermining the lived reality of minorities battling police brutality. In a almost three-minute video, Jenner is shown walking amidst a crowd of protesters before she plucks a can of soda from a cooler, marches up to the police line staring down the protest and hands it to a cop.

Pepsi issued an apology-and apologized to Jenner-and pulled the ad, but Jenner herself has maintained a low profile since the hubbub.

Alec Baldwin and Kendall Jenner pose backstage at the 2015 Fragrance Foundation Awards at Lincoln Center in 2015. About a quarter of respondents said it made them like her more, and about the same amount said it made them like her less.

MVP favourites Harden, Westbrook get first-round showdown
In the third quarter, he knocked down a pair of three-pointers to blow the lead out to 17 points, before returning to the bench. Meanwhile, Harden also delivered a resounding statement in Game 1 of the series showdown with his MVP adversary.

By now you've nearly certainly heard about the calamity of performative woke-ness that was the Kendall Jenner Pepsi commercial.

"Our Kendall sources tell us the model's got several interviews lined up when she hits up events at the festival", reports TMZ. In fact, she didn't address the Pepsi ad at all. Republicans favorability dips when the man playing a cello appears and decreases again when the woman in hijab grabs her camera and joins the protest.

" The model and her sister Kylie Jenner teamed up to host dating app Bumble's Winter Bumbleland Coachella party on Saturday, but the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star had a frown that refused to turn upside-down".

In their statement, representatives of the company said, "Pepsi was trying to project a global message of unity, peace and understanding".

Everyone agreeing instead of arguing about other political issues makes them, in a sense, united.
