The cringeworthy new ad, which sees Jenner break a tense stand-off between police and a group of protesters by giving one of the coppers a can of pepsi, has attracted universal condemnation.

The world has blasted Pepsi for attempting to mine the protest culture for commercial gain and for choosing Jenner.
