Kendall Jenner is finally opening up about her Pepsi commercial from this past April.

The ad was ultimately pulled after drawing widespread criticism for its trivialization of police brutality and white supremacy.

Though Pepsi released a statement apologizing for the ad, the model and reality star never directly addressed her role. 

But she will apparently do so in the Keeping Up With the Kardashians tenth anniversary special.

In a new promo, Kendall is seen in a conversation with Kim Kardashian that Us Weekly reports is about reaction to the commercial.

"It feels like my life is over,” Kendall says in the clip. 

"You made a mistake," Kim responds. 

 

Upon its debut, the ad was immediately condemned by viewers for its offensive message. 

Pepsi eventually pulled the spot, releasing a statement that mentioned Kendall's role.

“Pepsi was trying to project a global message of unity, peace and understanding. Clearly, we missed the mark, and we apologize. We did not intend to make light of any serious issue," the company said.

 

"We are pulling the content and halting any further rollout. We also apologize for putting Kendall Jenner in this position.”

Kim opened up about suggesting Kendall publicly address the commercial In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

"I see her at home crying, but in the media she looks another way because she's not addressing it," she said. 

 

"The team and everyone's telling her not to, and I'm just like, 'This is wrong. You need to speak up,’” she continued. 

“She was like, 'I don't ever want to show that footage of me crying.'"

"She was trying to not make excuses or be dramatic, but that was what she was going through at the time.”
