On Tuesday, Pepsi released a fairly ridiculous commercial that featured Kendall Jenner removing a blonde wig, wiping off lipstick and drinking Pepsi that was vaguely done in the name of equality, unity and ending police’s mistreatment of people of color.

The commercial was … not received well.

A 12 oz. Pepsi contains 41 grams of sugar. For a little reference, this is what 42 grams of sugar looks like.

I appreciate Chandler keeping it real. As Twitter user @The_Drip pointed out, Chandler plays half his games at the Pepsi Center, and he still didn’t hesitate to criticize the brand.
