From Pepsi to tequila: All the moments Kendall Jenner was tone-deaf

Kendall Jenner has once again fallen under public scrutiny. A public outcry rang out after the release of her new commercial advertising her new spirits company 818 Tequila yesterday. 

Specifically, the controversy was for the reported cultural appropriation of Mexican culture & dress in the commercial. Critics decried the move as Kendall Jenner exploiting Mexican culture to make a buck, reminding many of her Pepsi fiasco. Naturally, many took to Twitter to voice their displeasure as they did when Kendall Jenner released that now famous Pepsi commercial. 

But what are people saying about the commercial specifically, and what exactly happened in both cases? Luckily, we sipped through the internet to find the best reactions to the Kendall Jenner Pepsi fiasco 2.0. Grab a shot glass and let’s dive in. 

Not again 

Originally posted on Jenner’s Instagram yesterday, the ad showcases Kendall Jenner in braids with an oversized shirt, jeans, and boots with her on a horse for a large part of the commercial. This became one of the large points of contention for many people, as they claimed it feeds into an untrue stereotype about Mexican culture while also showcasing how she is exploiting Mexican labor as she negatively impacts them economically. 

This is not the first time Jenner has come under fire. Many compared this latest Kendall Jenner fiasco to her Pepsi commercial, which led to many people criticizing her for minimizing the many BLM protests that were taking place at the time. Kendall Jenner’s Pepsi commercial was eventually pulled, but the damage was done, leading to her tearful apology video. 

Though Kendall Jenner has disabled the comments to her original post for her spirits company, that didn’t stop many from voicing their displeasure at the commercial’s contents on Twitter. 

Twitter is not amused 

Many people had strong opinions about the commercial and Jenner’s choices both current & past. The best reactions to the commercial include: 

Yeah, she probably saw the writing on the wall on this one . . . 

Any chance that we can agree that every aspect of this is not good for Mexican culture? No? Ok then. . . 

It’s a real head scratcher why people are so upset, isn’t it?. . .

 We wish that was the case! 

You would think she would remember how that turned out but . . . 

It’s a miracle! 

This is what the kids call a bad look

Maybe time to go back to the drawing board . . . 

Again, probably best to go back to square one with your team. . . 

That’s pretty much it in a nutshell.
