Nearly two months after Kendall Jenner’s Pepsi ad prompted social media outrage, the first member of the Kardashian/Jenner clan is finally addressing the fiasco.
During an interview on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live,” Kim Kardashian opened up about how her sister felt about the negative backlash she received for being the face of a commercial that many felt trivialized protests associated with social justice movements.
“She totally understood at the end of the day, and she felt really awful for it,” Kardashian said of Jenner. “She just wants to move on from it.”
“I didn’t see it until it had already gotten the attention, so you obviously have a different perspective when everyone’s just saying something. I think I was traveling and I landed and I just saw all this stuff come up,” Kardashian continued. “I think any time someone does anything, they don’t have bad intentions — especially Kendall, who’s so sensitive. She would never mean for anyone to perceive anything in a negative way.”
