The daughter of Martin Luther King has made a rather blistering comment on Pepsi's controversial advert starring Kendall Jenner.

"'Join the conversation" - that's the most corporate message of all time.

" We clearly missed our goal, and we apologize", said the brand in a statement, adding that she put on hold throughout the campaign".

Kendall Jenner is reportedly "devastated" after the massive backlash against the Pepsi ad that she was involved in.

Soon after the ad was released, however, it trended on Twitter in the USA and many users slammed it for how it chose to deal with the serious social issues featured in the video.

Critics say the image of Jenner handing the officer a Pepsi evoked a photo of Black Lives Matter protester Ieshia Evans approaching an officer at a demonstration in Baton Rouge past year.

Pepsi may have pulled the ad, but we can't stop watching.

"So far we don't know what has caused all of America's hot extras to take to the streets, but I'm guessing it's a protest for Attractive Lives Matter", Colbert said. The true topic of discussion was the Pepsi ad that was released this week featuring Kendall Jenner. In a glorious providential heroine, the young woman approaches a police officer and hands her a can of soda.

A spokeswoman for Pepsi said: "Pepsi was trying to project a global message of unity, peace and understanding".

However, Kendall is expected to be able to recover from the controversy, with a source close to the dark-haired beauty insisting it has not done irreversible damage to her reputation.

But people on social media had a different perspective on Kendall's role in the commercial, saying it's outrageous for anyone to try to absolve her of responsibility.

"Pepsi should fire its ad agency". "She's just in the commercial". "I think it's going to be a cautionary tale for a lot of other marketers who have to be very careful about how they try to sell things".
