The Real Reason Why Kendal Jenner Is Laying Low Right Now

The Pepsi ad featuring Kendal Jenner was removed, but the backlash from it has made the reality star and fashion model want to stay out of the limelight.

According to a source that told People, Kendall is not happy with the backlash the Pepsi ad created and the 21-year old is taking it easy and relying on her family for it to pass.

“Kendall is still not happy about the controversy,” a source tells PEOPLE. “She plans on laying low until things calm down. She still talks about it a lot and has support from her family. She is spending a quiet weekend with her family.”

Jenner is now back in Los Angeles but was working abroad when the commercial was released.

In the ad, that Pepsi titled “Live for Now Moments Anthem” Jenner steps away from a photo shoot to join a group of protestors in the street. She hands a police officer a Pepsi can who after taking a sip, gets approval from the protestors.

Many have said the ad was in bad taste and offended the Black Lives Matter movement.

“Kendall loves modeling,” the source said. “She just wants to do a good job. She has no desire to be a part of something controversial. She is very aware of the backlash and [is] not happy. They are coming up with a plan on how to deal with it. She has been talking to [her mother Kris Jenner] about it.”

“[Kendall] has been in constant communication with her mom and sisters,” a Keeping Up with the Kardashians source previously told PEOPLE. “Everyone is being very supportive and ready to give advice. Kendall is young and certainly not used to being involved in such controversy.”

“She has been very upset. She feels terrible. She loves being a model. To get a Pepsi gig was a big deal. She was very excited. She never expected it to receive such backlash. She hopes people understand that she wasn’t involved in the creative process.”
