The former Olympian opened up about the controversy during her candid sit down on Andy Cohen‘s SiriusXM radio show on Wednesday.
And believe it or not, Cait didn’t quite understand what all the fuss was about over the exploitative ad! She explained:
“I saw [the commercial] and thought ‘That is so cool!’ It was cute and I guess I didn’t see all the things other people saw.”
The “things” other people saw were a company exploiting protests like Black Lives Matter — and painting them as fun social gatherings ripe with attractive millennials — without highlighting the violence, social issues, or emotional strife behind such movements.
Of course, one doesn’t have time to grasp the full scope of things when living in the Kardashian fast lane. Here’s how the gig went from Kendall’s standpoint, according to her father:
“Kendall said, ‘I’m a model, they hired me to go do this.’ She went down and shot the thing in a few days somewhere├óΓé¼┬ª then it came out and all hell broke loose. I felt sorry for Kendall.”
The 67-year-old added that Kendall was especially caught off guard by the backlash because Pepsi’s initial consumer tests of the ad “came back with 72 percent” approval.
Hopefully, Cait learned a thing or two from this for when she dips her toes into the world of politics!
Do U agree with Caitlyn’s take on Kendall’s Pepsi ad?
