SNL has released a sketch mocking Pepsi‘s “tone deaf” ad featuring Kendall Jenner, which saw two sides of a protest unite over a can of soda. The advertisement was widely criticized for trivializing the struggles of people of color and subsequently pulled by Pepsi.

SNL‘s parody gives a behind-the-scene glimpse of how the disastrous ad came together from the director’s point of view.
