Here’s How Kendall Jenner’s Family Plays Into That Whole Pepsi Dumpster Fire

no title

This was probably the worst week ever for Kendall Jenner and her PR team AKA Kris Jenner.

After all the backlash from that extremely tone-deaf Pepsi commercial, it sounds like the 21-year-old supermodel is leaning on her family for support.

A source close to the KUWTK family tells People:

“Kendall is still abroad working. She has been in constant communication with her mom and sisters. Everyone is being very supportive and ready to give advice. Kendall is young and certainly not used to being involved in such controversy.”

“She has been very upset. She feels terrible. She loves being a model. To get a Pepsi gig was a big deal. She was very excited. She never expected it to receive such backlash. She hopes people understand that she wasn’t involved in the creative process.”

OK, she’s not thaaat young — and she was clearly fine with being the “voice of the generation” when she thought she’d be received as a hero after this ad. Too many celebs these days use their platform for “good” only when they think it’ll benefit their career. At what age can we finally start holding them accountable?

But we digress.

The insider goes on to say:

“Kendall loves modeling. She just wants to do a good job. She has no desire to be a part of something controversial. She is very aware of the backlash and [is] not happy. They are coming up with a plan on how to deal with it. She has been talking to [her mother Kris Jenner] about it.”

And we wait for her and her family’s response.
