Journalists were reportedly warned not to ask Kendall Jenner about that Pepsi ad


Kendall Jenner, like many celebrities, hit up Coachella last weekend. Naturally, journalists wanted to ask her a few questions. But there may have a been a few they couldn't ask.

Any questions about the now-infamous Pepsi ad featuring Jenner were off-limits, TMZ reported. A reporter who tried to ask a question about Pepsi or the ad would deem their outlet "persona non grata." 

Jenner has not spoken publicly about the ad or the backlash that resulted from it.

Jenner critics, meanwhile, argue she deserves to take responsibility.
