“I can’t remember anything about this picture but I still love it — the colors are all so vibrant,” she wrote. “It looks like Ky and I were riding on a little carousel. And, judging by the braids, we’re either on vacation or had just gotten back. Cuties!” Kylie, 18, also posted the pic on her app and Instagram.

Kendall has been receiving backlash all week for her involvement in the company’s new ad, where she ends a riot by simply offering a police officer a can of Pepsi. Many were outraged by the insensitive concept and believed it made light of social movements. In response, Pepsi pulled the ad and issued an apology.

We did not intend to make light of any serious issue,” the statement read. “We are pulling the content and halting any further rollout. We also apologize for putting Kendall Jenner in this position.”
