A certain sugar-water corporation released an advertisement Tuesday starring celebrity and model Kendall Jenner. This advertisement was so un-woke it amazingly united the internet into 24 hours of anger. The left hated this advertisement for appropriating the Black Lives Matter movement, and the right hated the advertisement for promoting leftist social protest. So the sugar-water corporation pulled the ad!
It's a very, very tiny meaningless victory in a time when it feels like there is no justice. The advertisement will never live to sell another 12 ounce can of soda! But, nothing is gone forever on the internet. Those images survive so the likes of Stephen Colbert can point out that those signs are so generic they might as well say, "We Are All the Core Demographic."
As Colbert points out, it's the little details that made this commercial so absurd. Like, look at the face of the woman to whom Jenner hands her blonde wig? Why the hell did that guy bring a cello to a march?
But the biggest question of all is: What caused all of these beautiful people to take to the streets and choose Jenner as their leader? As Colbert said, "I'm guessing it's a protest for Attractive Lives Matter."
