Kendall and Kylie Attend Travis Scott Concert at Coachella

Kendall and Kylie Attend Travis Scott Concert at Coachella

A source familiar with Jenner's deal with Pepsi tells ET that the commercial was only slated to air overseas, not in the USA, but it ended up making the rounds online, with even the 21-year-old model tweeting it out.

Alec Baldwin has defended Kendall Jenner over her controversial Pepsi commercial.

In the now-pulled advertisement released in early April, titled "Live for Now Moments Anthem", Jenner, 21, ditched a photo shoot to join a group of attractive protesters in the street.

She wore her silky chestnut tresses stick straight and parted down the center for a dramatic effect. The pic was snapped as she was leaving the Travis Scott concert.

The younger sister of Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian dressed casually in a vintage jean jacket and printed grey tee.

Kendall rounded out her laid-back look with plain white sneakers and dark movie star shades.

But Baldwin had plenty to say over social media.

Kendall Jenner is facing the music following her horrendous Pepsi ad drama. "She is spending a quiet weekend with her family".

The commercial, which was called Live For Now Moments Anthem, unfurled a freaky sequence in which Kendall joined in a metropolitan protest, later handing a policeman a Pepsi, triggering gleeful applause from the crowd.

Reaction to the ad was swift, with a variety of people (from Lena Dunham to Martin Luther King, Jr.'s daughter) weighing in to call it tone-deaf (or worse), and outlets including the New York Times covering the controversy.

Pepsi apologized for its universally panned ad, admitting that it "missed the mark", and was remorseful to Jenner.

A survey published by Morning Consult shows that more than half of the 2,200 young Americans surveyed viewed the ad positively and 44 percent of the survey respondents said that they viewed Pepsi "more favorably" after watching the commercial.

Attendees should know that there will be no harassment of Kendall, as security will be out in force at both parties.
