South Africans have joined thousands around the world in sharing their shock and outrage at a Pepsi advert that seemed to suggest that societal ills could be solved by drinking the cold beverage.

The ad, which shows Kendall Jenner joining a protest and handing a policeman a Pepsi to ease the hostility, was slammed by viewers across the world this week.


Many accused it of trying to cash in on social issues and being “disrespectful’ to civil rights movements such as Black Lives Matter.

The advert topped the local trends list and drew sharp reactions from Twitter users, including radio personality Poppy Ntshongwana.



Other’s saw the lighter side of the controversy.
