Kendall Jenner Controversial Ad

Remember back in April when the internet lost its freakin’ MIND over Kendall Jenner and that controversial Pepsi ad? And how it was then pulled down for being so damn offensive? But then Kendall went radio silent on the matter, while sister Kim tried to defend her sister (and Ken’s lack of apology)? Yeah, it was pretty hard to forget tbh.

Well, six months later and Kendall has FINALLY addressed the ad, and what the eff actually happened. Because better late than never, right?

On the latest ep of Keeping Up With The Kardashians the model broke down as she spoke on camera about the matter for the first time.

"When I first got this offer... I mean, it's a huge company. The people I was following were so iconic and amazing," Kendall said. "Michael Jackson has done it, Britney Spears has done it, Beyoncé has done it, Pink. The list goes on. So to get something like that was just... It was so exciting."

But, when the backlash started, she quickly realised it has been a mistake…

"After I saw the reaction and I read what people had to say about it, I most definitely saw what went wrong. I was so stuck, and I really didn't know what to do, and I completely shut down."

"I would never purposely hurt someone, ever, and if I knew this would've been the outcome I never would've done something like this," Kendall added. "The fact that I would offend or hurt other people was definitely not the intent. And that's what got me the most, is that I would've ever made anyone else upset."

Notably, Kendall sounds like she regrets that people were hurt by the ad, stating that it was unintentional, but there’s no footage of her actually saying ‘sorry’ for taking part in an offensive campaign in the first place (which was the one of the biggest parts of the controversy).

Khloé then echoed her sister's lack of blame saying, "Kendall did a commercial, and it basically caused a huge controversy, and it sucks because Kendall's been taking the blame for it all."

"Kendall tries really hard to be socially conscious and aware of the jobs that she takes, and to really think about how things affect other people. So it weighs really heavy on her heart, and she's super sensitive to this kind of stuff. Kendall's intent is never to disrespect or offend anybody."

.... Anyone else reckon this kinda misses the point?
