Madonna has joined the ranks of celebrities criticizing Pepsi for its commercial featuring Kendall Jenner which some saw as an appropriation of the Black Lives Matter movement.
After the backlash, the soda company pulled the ad Wednesday and apologized to anyone it may have offended. (RELATED: Accused Of Being Too Nice To Cops, Pepsi Yanks Kendall Jenner Protest Ad)
Madonna, who had her own Pepsi commercial pulled back in 1989, took a jab at Pepsi with posts on Twitter and Instagram Wednesday afternoon.

“When you wake up and realize that Shit just really doesn’t make sense!.” the 58-year-old pop singer said in one post. “Side Note: My Pepsi commercial was pulled 30 years ago because I was kissing a black saint! #ironic,” she added.
She later posted an old photo of herself holding a Coca-Cola can and captioned it with nothing but a gold medal emoji, clearly suggesting that Pepsi’s competitor is number one for a reason.
Madonna’s 1989 Pepsi ad featured the singer’s hit song “Like A Prayer,” and although the ad itself wasn’t controversial, the music video for the song was. The “Like A Prayer” video, which featured cross-burning and Madonna kissing a black saint, was released a day after the Pepsi ad ran, and it caused such an outrage they decided to pull the ad.
