Kendall Opens Up About Pepsi Ad Controversy

In a rare moment of vulnerability from the supermodel, Kendall revealed her feelings about her publicly panned Pepsi commercial in a tear-soaked confessional. She confessed, “It’s a huge company. The people I was following … Michael Jackson’s done it. Britney Spears has done it. Beyoncé has done it. Pink … I trusted everyone. I trusted the teams. But after I saw the reaction and I read what people had to say about it, I most definitely saw what went wrong.”

Kendall Doesn’t Mention Why the Commercial Was Offensive, Calls Fallout ‘Depressing’

Kendall, who never specifically mentioned Black Lives Matter by name or articulated any specific reason the ad may have come off as tone-deaf, kept emphasizing her regret in starring in the protest-themed advertisement. She continued, this time telling sister Kim, “I feel really bad that anyone that anyone was ever offended … This was taken such a wrong way. … I have no idea how I’m gonna bounce back from it.” Kendall then mentioned the fallout from the commercial was “really depressing.” Kim advised her sister to be “real and honest” about the controversy and to look at it as an opportunity to “grow.”

Kendall continued to feel remorseful, stating, “I would never purposely hurt someone ever. … If I knew this was gonna be the outcome I would have never done something like this.” She continued, “It was so like, I just felt so f–king stupid.”

Kendall Says Caitlyn Shouldn’t Have Spoken to the Media

Kendall then lamented that Caitlyn talking to the press about the ad was misguided. Kendall told Kim, “My dad doesn’t actually know what happened. … She wouldn’t know. … She was not in the works of it and the behind-the-scenes of it.”

While on a private plane, Kim then vented to Khloé about the bombshells coming out of Caitlyn’s book — including her reveal that she’s gotten gender reassignment surgery. Kim appeared annoyed saying, “She ‘snipped.’ … Why couldn’t she have said that to us?” Khloé then snapped, revealing the root of her estrangement from Caitlyn, “It’s not ’cause you’re trans. That’s not why I’m not talking you. It’s because you’re a bad, mean person.”

Kris Hints at Regrets Over Marriage to Caitlyn

Kim, who was given a copy of Caitlyn’s memoir prior to its release earlier this year, revealed, “Clearly she gave me a different book with everything edited out that she didn’t want us to see.” Later, mom Kris Jenner Facetimed with Kim and Khloé while crying about the news. Through tears Kris said, “I never had any idea. … I never would have done this to my kids. … I’m always the last to know.”
