‘KUWTK’ Fans Can’t Look Away From This ‘Unsettling’ Kendall Jenner Ad
When it comes to controversy and drama, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians clan doesn’t fall short of either of the two.
The sisters have always managed to place themselves front and center of anything that will provide them with money and fame.
While all the sisters each carry their own weight when it comes to their contribution to the family fortune, some of their endeavors usually bring them more hate and controversy than others.
Kendall found her fame through the reality series ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’
Kendall is one of the Kardashian-Jenner sisters who star in the reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians. The reality series debuted in 2007 on the E! Network. The show features the Kardashian sisters, Kourtney, Kim, and Khloe, alongside the Jenner sisters Kendall and Kylie. Their mother, Kris Jenner, acts as the sisters’ momager.
Occasionally the sisters’ brother Rob cameos alongside some of Caitlyn Jenner’s sons, Brody and Brandon. The show follows the sisters as they navigate their ways through life, relationships, careers, and family.
Viewers have seen the sisters get married, get children, and launch their products and careers through the platform. Kim and Kylie launched their cosmetic companies through the show and large followings on social media. Kendall rose to become one of the world’s highest supermodels in the world due to her family ties.
Kendall has starred in some controversial ads in the past
When Pepsi released their new ad featuring Kendall supporting the Black Lives Matter movement, fans everywhere were enraged. The ad featured a group of protesters marching happily while holding placards that read ‘peace’ and ‘love.’
Jenner appears wearing a blonde wig then gets beckoned by a man holding the cello. She takes off the wig and wipes away her bold lipstick to join the group of protesters. She then approaches a police officer and gives him a can of fizzy soda while people cheer on.
While there was nothing seemingly harmful about the model giving a police officer a soda in front of a whole crowd of marchers, the ad seemed to provide a false narrative of the protest happening in the United States at the time.
Most people were angered by the insensitivity and tone-deafness of both the soda company Pepsi and Kendall herself. Some people criticized the ad, saying that it trivialized the urgency of the country’s protests and racism issues and reduced the urgency of why people went to the streets.
Pepsi quickly pulled the ad down and issued an apology saying that they wanted to ‘spread love and unity’ through their advertisement. The soft drink company added that they clearly missed the mark´ and didn’t intend to make light of the serious issues at hand. Kendall even cried about the backlash in an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
The supermodel has once again found herself at the center of controversy
Kim recently came out with her new body shapewear line called SKIMS. The mother of four said that she curated the line to help people battling with body insecurities and help them find their mojo back. To help put the word about the body shapewear out there, the socialite’s sisters used their platforms to promote Kim’s clothing line.
While each of the sisters had their own things to say about their insecurities in the ads, Kendall’s ad caught many people’s attention. In a Reddit thread, fans quickly called the ad ‘unsettling and cringy to watch.’
One fan said that they couldn’t get over how awkward and cringy Kendall looked in the ad. Some called her introduction creepy, while others stated that the polaroids used at the beginning seemed like they were pulled out of a True Crime Documentary.
