Caitlyn Jenner Defends Daughter Kendall Jenner's Pepsi Ad


In a surprise plot twist, Caitlyn Jenner has found herself speaking out about a recent familial controversy.

Not one to shy away from saying the difficult thing, Jenner chatted with radio host Andy Cohen initially about her new memoir, and eventually (inevitably) about her daughter Kendall Jenner's Pepsi commercial.

All of this to say, the world is nothing if not messy today, and the Kardashian/Jenner family is following suit.

Kendall herself is reportedly devastated with the backlash and pulled of her personal promotion from her social media following the fallout.
