@BillRatchet tweeting about Pepsi’s ad with Kendall Jenner, which the company pulled Wednesday after it was dragged across social media. In the two-minute ad released Tuesday afternoon, Jenner is in the middle of a photo shoot when she throws off a blond wig to join a group of protesters. In the ad’s big moment, Kendall steps forward to hand one of the police officers a can of Pepsi. The officer cracks a smile, breaking the tension. Pepsi was criticized for its tone-deaf portrayal of protests and taking imagery from the Black Lives Matter movement. Here is a link to the video.

Kendall Jenner wasn't 'put' in any position. She signed a contract and cashed a cheque. She wouldn't be first on my list for an apology.

Twitter user @ngmferguson shared this image of the child, which went viral. Young Godzilla went to class at Indiana University with his mother because he was on spring break.

@aj82 weighing in on the nonsensical question: How would pants wear pants? Twitter user @bobby posed the question, asking social media users if pants would wear a pair of pants on each leg, or if pants would wear pants the same way as humans.
