Colbert talks about Pepsi’s controversial ad on Late Show


The Late Show with Stephen Colbert started Wednesday night’s episode by talking about some topics, including the controversial Pepsi commercial.

In 2017, the vast majority of air time used by the CBS series The Late Show with Stephen Colbert has been spent talking about and making fun of President Donald Trump. However, there was something else that Colbert had to talk about this week.

During Wednesday night’s episode of The Late Show, Colbert started his opening monologue by talking about FOX News personality Bill O’Reilly, who is in hot water after it was revealed that he has settled sexual harassment complaints with five different women. Colbert also trolled President Trump for supporting O’Reilly since this is supposed to be Sexual Assault Awareness Month.

After a few minutes talking about Trump and O’Reilly, Colbert started to talk about Pepsi. The soda company release a controversial commercial earlier this week featuring Kendall Jenner and an incredibly confusing message about protests. Apparently giving a police officer a can of Pepsi means that you win a protest, or something. I don’t really know.

Anyway, you can check out Colbert’s entire opening monologue from Wednesday night in the YouTube video below, or you can jump to the 5:15 mark when he starts talking about the Pepsi ad.

Pepsi quickly pulled the advertisement due to its negative reception from a widespread audience. That’s definitely a lot of money down the drain for Pepsi, and the damage has already been done despite pulling the ad.

Who knows? Maybe President Trump was a big fan of the commercial and will start trying to end protests by giving out Pepsi to police officers.
