Kendall Jenner 'feels bad' after Pepsi Black Lives Matter advert controversy

Kendall Jenner 'feels bad' after Pepsi Black Lives Matter advert controversy
From BBC - October 1, 2017

Kendall Jenner says she feels "really bad" if she offended anyone after appearing in a controversial Pepsi advert earlier this year.

She was accused of undermining the Black Lives Matter movement after handing a can of the soft drink to a police officer during a protest.

Speaking in a new episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, the model says she'd "never purposely hurt someone".

"I just feel really, really bad," Kendall tells Kim Kardashian.

"I feel really bad that anyone was ever offended. I feel really bad that this was taken such a wrong way and I genuinely feel like [rubbish].

"I have no idea how I am gonna bounce back from it."

Kim Kardashian is then seen comforting Kendall and telling her she will learn from the experience.

"This is the first time you have had a scandal," the 21-year-old says. "This is your first real experience with something like this.

"This is just gonna be the biggest lesson learned for you."

In the Pepsi advert, Kendall Jenner leaves a photoshoot to join protesters calling for love and peace, before handing a can to police as a peace offering.
