Pepsi’s decision to pull a controversial ad has left a sour taste in Kris Jenner’s mouth, RadarOnline.com has learned.
The ad, which features Kendall Jenner handing a soda to a cop at a protest, was slammed on the internet and beyond by people who say it trivializes real social upheaval, like the Black Lives Matter movement.
Pepsi pulled the ad Wednesday, just a day after it premiered. And according to a new report, that didn’t go over well with Mama Jenner!
“Kris Jenner is livid,” a source told Naughty Gossip. “She thinks that Kendall is being made to look an idiot and is frightened that her daughter is getting blamed.”
It’s also set to cost Kendall some sizeable bank!
“Kendall was to make money every time the ad ran,” the source continued. “Now she will not and Kris is livid. Kris is also frightened other brands will not want to use Kendall now. This could cost her millions and maybe end her career.”

According to Naughty Gossip, Kris wants Pepsi to pay Kendall in FULL for the ad, and throw in some extra cash for the “distress that she is suffering.”
Meanwhile, Pepsi issued a statement apologizing directly to Kendall.
“Pepsi was trying to project a global a message of unity, peace and understanding,” the message reads. “Clearly, we missed the mark, and we apologize. We did not intend to make light of any serious issue. We are pulling the content and halting any further rollout.
“We also apologize for putting Kendall Jenner in this position.”
