Most American cities are filled with protestors who support the Black Lives Matter movement. They are doing so to seek justice for the racism and police violence carried out against George Floyd. While this has turned into a major civil right movement in history, people are making use of their social media platforms to call out brands over racist remarks and claims. 

Amid the protests and social media battle, trollers are back at it and poking fun over this Pepsi commercial from 2017. For the ones who are new here, Kendall Jenner was slammed by enraged people across the world. In the commercial, she's seen at a protest (just like the one now). She emerges from the crowd and offers a can of Pepsi to the officer. The officer takes a sip and suddenly joins the crowd. Everyone is happy and this shows that a simple gesture calmed down the tension between the police and the protestors. 

This ad was so badly slammed for oversimplifying protests and movements for corporate profits. It reached a point where Pepsi had to take down the commercial and apologize for the same. 

Back then, the supermodel also said, "I just felt so stupid… the fact that I would offend other people or hurt other people was definitely not my intent."

Now, that the Black Lives Matter protests are taking place across America, trollers and raged people are using their social media presence to take us back to 2017 with stills from this Pepsi commercial. 

Diet Prada, the infamous fashion watchdog also posted a photo with a man mimicking Kendall's move from the as and offering Pepsi to an officer. They captioned the photo, 'When the world needed her the most..'
