The whole Pepsi thing was a Russian false flag op to distract us from the real issue of Barry Manilow coming out.

Looks like the powers that be at Pepsi finally had enough of the backlash against their, um, ill-advised new ad featuring Kendall Jenner ending civil unrest by giving some pop to a cop:
They’ve pulled the ad and apologized for pissing off so many people — and for hurting Kendall Jenner’s impeccable reputation:

Pepsi’s not garnering much sympathy even after that apology. Nor, for that matter, is Kendall Jenner.

@pepsi this is bad damage control. People of color must be part of the review and decision-making process. Jenner should know better.

@pepsi You apologize to Kendall Freaking Jenner?? What the hell for?? Is she an adult? Did she cash your paycheck? Did she say "this is wrong"?

Word of advice: Pepsi, next time you feel like getting woke, go back to sleep.
