Kendall Jenner has remained tight-lipped about the controversial Pepsi advert which caused a worldwide backlash and forced the soft drinks brand to cut the video entirely.

However, some of the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star's thoughts have now been revealed in a behind-the-scenes video from filming.

The advert sparked criticism from Martin Luther King's daughter and the 'Material Girl' herself, Madonna after it posed Kendall Jenner as a leader of a protest, which saw her confront police by dishing out a Pepsi.

It was widely criticised for portraying a white, privileged heroine, and seemingly hopping on the back of real-life campaigns such as Black Lives Matter and the Women's March in order to sell soda pop.

Pepsi has released an official apology about the advert, as well as to the model herself, however she has yet to release an official statement following the controversy.

Despite, this the 21-year-old had plenty to say about the advert before everyone pointed out how distasteful it was.

Speaking on the making-of video published by Pepsi, she said: "It's really exciting, I think it's an honour to follow in some of the most iconic people's footsteps, it's really cool and I'm really excited about it's a dream come true.

"I've always dreamed of being part of some commercial, and to be a part of Pepsi is awesome."

Moving onto some of the themes behind the campaign, Kendall seemed all for them, explaining: "I always try and stop myself and take a step back and be in the moment.

"I love spontaneity and just picking up and doing something when I have a moment to, and I also just think surrounding yourself with things that you love."

Some users on social media have placed the blame solely with Pepsi for the controversial advert.

Meanwhile, others have questioned Kendall's decision to get involved considering the content.

Meanwhile Coca-Cola have been kinda loving all this Pepsi drama, and you can tell they're totally enjoying all the praise over on their Twitter account.

Digital Spy has reached out to Kendall Jenner's reps for comment.
