Protests broke all over the US after the death of George Floyd. A videotape from the incident showed that Floyd had been struggling to breathe after a police officer knelt on his neck. Unable to breathe, he tried to make his uneasiness known but it resulted in no reactions from the cops. Unfortunately, Floyd was pronounced dead and protests erupted all over the US, seeking justice for him and other African Americans who were murdered recently.

Among many places, people have come out of their houses and started protesting in Beverly Hills. With signs saying black lives matter and calling for justice, people did not shy away from getting their voices heard. However, one person that everyone thought was missing was Kendall Jenner. She came under a lot of fire when she did an ad for Pepsi. The ad was made under their "live bolder" campaign and featured Jenner. The ad started with protests taking place in Beverly Hills with many people joining eventually. Calling for peace and ending brutality, the ad showed Jenner offering a can of Pepsi to the officer as a peace offering.

As the cop accepts the offer, people break out cheering hinting that the protest has ended. The ad came out in 2017 but received a lot of backlash at that time. Many people were upset that the ad made a mockery of all the protests that people did around the world to call for justice. 

At that time, there had been a protest to showcase how black lives matter and this ad seemed to come out at a wrong time. Years after the incident, it looks like people have still not forgotten the ad. Fans had been questioning where Jenner was as people took to the streets to protest.
