Who is Kendall Jenner?

A model, I guess. I think she's a Kardashian half-sister, too. I think, don't hold me to that, I'm not certain.

I have no respect for companies which pull ads due to snowflakes crying about them.

I don't give 2 flying f#s about the commercial's imagery, but I do like the song. A lot. Anyone know who's song that is? I'm not all that up to date with music, kind of stopped paying attention past the mid-to-late 90's.

Congrats, OP. Your snowflake whining tuned me on to a new tune. Backfired on ya, didn't it?


That is hilarious. You sure showed them.

Half sarcasm, half seriousness. Whiny pants whines about a commercial, commercial sucks but music's pretty good. Well shucks, son! Posting a thread to whine just made me pay attention to the music in an ad I in all likelihood would have not seen anywhere otherwise (we don't watch the idiot box) Opposite results achieved!

It's known muslim women cannot touch non-family men or at least dating, a handshake is pushing it. That hug was extremely out of character for a muslim(Yes I am assuming a women wearing that on her head is muslim).

Commercial really typified lefties, protesting nothing. feel goods all around.

Protests can be PRO.

They don't need to be ANTI.

Not enough white hetro-males were represented in the video, but that's OK, we are the actual Lions, we are the actual movement.

If that comment triggers you (the reader, not the OP), then you have a massive issue with reality and life, deal with it correctly (Hint: do the opposite of what CNN, MSNBC and Buzzfeed tell you to think and do).

Everyone I don't like is a whitey-hatin' racist Hitler.

That is a stretch. A stretch that far would also claim Trump used Bigly correctly.

the pro version of a demonstration, is a rally or parade. Filled with Joy, Laughter, fun

Protest are filled negative emotions, fear, hate, anger, violence

The white hetero males were at work paying taxes and building things including society in general.

Just because you have Money, or come from a family of Money doesn't mean you can't 'Protest' or be against inequality, oppression, even capitalism etc.

It's the liberalized versions of it that give it a bad name, the Hashtag activism or those that donate to Charity and feel they have "Done their part".

It's the Celebrities that get Equality and humanitarian awards for giving a speech with buzzwords thrown in and praised for it when they could be using their money to build communal centers etc for those marginalized people they are exploiting for their own ego

I am pretty sure you have misread the OP and probably most of the comments here. As far as I can see no one is whining, they posted how it was removed due to someone else whining. OP and most others are just pointing out how ridiculous and stupid it is. No manufactured outrage here brosephus.

Well I liked the vid as it shows tons of people coming together and I suppose showing that riot police being there for no reason can be chilled with an icy cold Pepsi......

And omg she was HOT HOT HOT HOT with that blonde hair. I wasnt sure what she looked like prior as I do not watch tv, so I thought that was her. She's cute without the wig but my word, with the wig..... I only wished I looked as beautiful.

In that light, maybe Pepsi thought they found a clever way to not take a side, but instead to ask everyone, particularly protestors, to just chill.

"Protest Civil Rights for Women and Minorities" sounds like a sign a white male supremacist would wave. You are right you need to reprint the sign.

At best its an asexual(I know Im using it wrong on purpose) sign, The hipster activist or White supremacist could use that sign.

that "commercial" is a clear indication all creativity has been lost in that area of business.

Hmm, you may be onto something here. One sign, many protests. I could make millions in the coming years! What should the back side say? Probably something ambivalent about Jews and Muslims.
