Pepsi is getting a lot of people talking but for not the right reasons. An ad they premiered with reality star Kendall Jenner had majority of viewers upset due to the insensitive attempt to make protesting cool and refreshing. Well yesterday Whoopi Goldberg and the ladies on The View got to chime in. Goldberg decided to a different stance on the matter by defending Jenner’s involvement.
“I don’t know if it’s offensive,” said Goldberg. “I think it’s maybe her trying to say something that says we’re all one. She’s trying to do something good and I’m not pissed at her.” Though Jedediah Bila criticized the commercial for making a protest look like a party, Goldberg said “sometimes these protests were big parties.” “That’s why when you watch ‘Forrest Gump,’ they’re on the Washington Mall, people got music going, not everything was dour,” she continued. “I don’t know if it’s tone deaf, I just think this is her way of saying ‘Hey listen, let’s be more inclusive.’ “Anything that tries to send a positive message as opposed to a lot of the crap that we see,” she added before trailing off to tell Sunny Hostin to “get [her] face better” over her reaction to Whoopi’s words.
