Cardi B

A Pepsi Super Bowl commercial featuring Bronx rapper Cardi B, Steve Carrell and rapper Li'l Jon is causing controversy, as many viewers say the commercial is racist.

The 30-second commercial features Cardi and Jon with Carrell in a diner, as Carrell frequently asks the question, "is Pepsi OK?"

Jon responds with his signature catchphrase "OKAYYYY!" While Cardi says, "OKURRRRRR!"

Carrell attempts to repeat both catchphrases before deciding he needs his own catchphrase.

The commercial will be featured prominently during the lead up to the Super Bowl on Sunday, Feb. 3.

Cardi declined to perform during the Super Bowl halftime to show solidarity with Colin Kaepernick, who is an unsigned free agent.

Cardi performed on Saturday, Feb. 2, at the Super Bowl Music Festival with pop singer Bruno Mars.

Li'l Jon also performed at the Music Festival on Thursday, Jan. 31, along with Migos, Li'l Yachty, Ludacris, Ciara, T.I. and more.

    First I have to say that Steve Carrell is looking bae af ???

    And this is NOT racist. Of course I despise Pepsi but saying this ad is racist is such a reach. They got famous people saying their own classic sayings. It’s a cool concept if the product wasn’t so unhealthy ?

    The king and queen of ratchet on full display.

  • Idare2bdiffrnt

    .... The word "Racist" is thrown around so much that soon it will lack any weight.

  • IamAllnatural

    Somebody please explain how this is racist. It’s annoying but not racist.

  • Mazey1

    Tell the WHOLE truth Any White man looks bae to you. He could be a fat slob, broke deadbeat bum or KKK racist and you'd still lick his feet.

  • CPA

    What’s the controversy?

  • CPA

    Who’s saying it is? I’m busy, I guess I missed something?

  • Gloria

    It is best to speak with knowledge rather than ignorance. Figure out who you are. God bless you as you go.

  • Sushi

    Funny how they threw up the 3 6's in this commercial, and I bet no one will catch it.. Interesting. ...

  • 11pink123

    I’m still looking for the racism.....

    Do cardi and them know the NFL still making money off them???

    Dummies trying to bring down the NFL...they thought they had that kind of power, what narcissist..

    With the slavery contracts they signed, The NFL can call up they labels and force them to perform, if they really wanted too.. Guess these celebs forgot they were owned, they let the Diamonds and Gucci get to they head.. to busy trying to flex and forgot the reality is they are well kept slaves...

    All of them need to shut up and never speak on activism again...including
    KP... can’t even turn down a super bowl party or commercial, how they gone fight for justice... lol ? yeah aight!!!

    Shout out to all the people who never fell for the theatrics, kept it 100 and about to watch the super bowl...???????

  • Bonita

    Agree. It's not racist, but definitely stereotypical.

  • Sushi

    It's not about race, but look at the commercial again......

  • CPA

    Caught it

  • Mia

    Nope you missed nothing.. when nothing to talk
    About they make things up

  • Sushi

    And see how they are throwing race in it...... ok, I see what you did there....it's about separation of the masses. ....

  • Dollmeshia Dee-Dee Clark

    Racist ??? maybe I’m a lil slow....enlighten me please?????

  • Dollmeshia Dee-Dee Clark

    3 6’s???? Maybe I’m just clueless .... where n when

  • Rayne

    She’s very pretty in this commercial. Steve got new chompers cause his top lip is even smaller and it’s not the ‘stache either lol

  • Alextra Ballard

  • Rayne

    You sure we not related ? that was nice nasty lmfaooo????

  • CookieMobster

    Why does every thing gotta be "racist" now? Folks hollering this is racist, that is racist, that away stuff that is truly racists. If a white woman calls you a n!gger and tells you she won't serve you food cuz you are black, well THAT is racist. This shot is NOT.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Um sho nuff missin somn....As long as yall direct deposited my money,the hell with the so-called controversy

  • Eileen

    I saw the show "Atlanta" that is the most ratchet show on planet earth! The bm are all trifiling the bw have no standards and it is simply a sad pitiful show full of not stereotypes but real black folk acting so simple .The boys and men want to rap no planning for the future nothing...smh

  • Y me?

    That was cute. I'm glad she's benefiting from making okurr popular because usually white culture vultures come in and steal the vernacular and take all the profits

  • Coy little wink
  • Gloria

    And I keep hearing it's a really good show

  • Peppermint Patty

    Eileen if you dont gone over to yahoo news with that late ass commentary....donald Glover is the shit!

  • Coy little wink

    The festival is not televised?

  • Dreadboi

    looks like someone got they third eye open..

  • Sushi

    Look, you better, They put it in your face, and it is so subtle, if you're not sharp, you will miss it....

  • seun

    Except my fave though. Fenty beauty just made 570 million in sales in its first year according to LVMH's financial reports. And she hasn't toured in 3yrs. Rihanna's cash flow must be good.

  • Mazey1

    I sure hope you find a white boy willing to marry you so that you don't waste the time of some clueless black guy who doesn't realize you bedwench fantasies. lol

  • Eileen

    thats right he is sh-t I am entitled to my own opinion the acting is great but the true story behind it is real and sad there are black folks like that for real!!!

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    The commercial just aired. I didn’t get racism but OK!!!!

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    My thoughts exactly! I was thinking that on yesterday. If u boycott, boycott everything

  • MsPam

    The good thing about the commercial is that we don’t have to hear her mouth. One word is great!

  • Peppermint Patty

    So you agree it's greatness....that'll b all

  • Peppermint Patty

    It is don't pay this daisy in a room of roses no mind....check it out and u b the judge

  • Coco17

    Me either, they reaching for real.

  • Nina Ross

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    How did Gladys do? I missed it

  • Coco17

    Yep, dont get the talent. But glad she's winning. You know they love to build people up to bring them down. Its how it usually happens. Long as she stay humble she will be ok.

  • Coco17

    Gladys did good and looked very pretty.

  • Y me?

    True. The fact that she was even included is def a low bar, but in today's climate even that is something

  • Topic Influencer

    Neither will be the revolution.

  • Topic Influencer

    It's not televised. And you taking from NFL vs giving/volunteering. Those shows pay. Super Bowl half time does not. It's akin to them doing a regular ticketed concert

  • Topic Influencer

    Excellent

  • OvertheMississippi

    Flawlessly!!

  • Thingamajig

    It’s not racist, it’s just silly and they’re capitalizing off of Cardi B because she is popular. I don’t know why on earth they even bothered to put lil Jon up in there.

  • TwitterFingerz

    I know it was. My girl

  • millz

    How about Steve Carrell throwing up the ? ??

  • the guest

    Adorable commercial.

    Someone in Hollywood LOVES this woman Cardi B.

    Comparatively speaking to other latina stars, in two years she's more visible, established, successful than Jlo, Salma Hayek, Sofia Vegara, Rosie Perez all were in the first 10 years of their careers. Those latina stars were on the grind for years to attain Cardi's level of fame. I don't think Jlo has ever had a Pepsi commercial? Cardi is just getting started too. She will be making movies, they will be giving her a sitcom, and that's not even including Spanish television. Think about how famous Michael Jackson and Britney Spears were before they got Pepsi Superbowl commercials. I'm just illustrating how unreal her meteoric rise is especially as a female rapper. Somebody very powerful at the helm of Hollywood loves that woman.

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    Here is a rub, she admitted she started saying okurrrrr from watching none other than the Kardashians !!!! Someone commented on Instagram that she stole the catchphrase and she responded ! But guess what I am happy about they did not Trademark it and they did not make one dime crime her saying okurrrrrr and she is killing the game with it!!!

  • the guest

    But not without her. That's the key. Years ago they would have had some white star doing a version of her vernacular.

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    I’m not riding the Cardi train. I just can’t because I’m honestly not interested but I’m happy for her. Make money.

  • the guest

    Caught it. Not accidental either.

  • Thanos of Titan

    Why are there no details or explanation of why the ad is considered racist? How did you ascertain that "many viewers say the commercial is racist?" What basis, reference or source brought you to this conclusion? These simple details would make a world of difference. You seem to be the only site "reporting" on this. I mean no offense, but this post seems incomplete and not very credible. Posts like this undermine the legitamacy of this site. Fake news?

  • lovelygamour

    she is signed to CAA agents. they wanted to get in on reality tv and they did it with a bang. this couldve been joseline but she didnt want to be a clown and people thought she was a man.

  • Sushi

    Ok you cought the 3 6's....mmmmm I know right..... She has crossed over....

  • the guest

    I do not like the show Atlanta. I know the back story of racism and stereotyping by the white people who cast it.

  • Sushi

    I see where you were going , and I get it, that could have been Joseline, but they will use anyone that will cross over...."sell your soul"....

  • Sushi

    Nah, you are right......separation of the masses ......

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Im hoping that whomever it is that has love FOR her (she has a DAMN good mgr) saw her struggle trying to convince a SIMP a$$ dj to give her time in the studio and believe in her saw her overall DRIVE to get heard and show the talent she possesses.

    Ive ALWAYS like Cardi because she reminds me of some of my homegirls from the NYC but I never bothered to watch her performances until this weekend.... She puts on a GREAT show and can rap!
    I wish her ALL the success GOD has in store for her! SHE DESERVES IT ???

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Her new face looks FANTASTIC!

    I don't think it's racist, but it is ignorant.

  • the guest

    AMEN to everything you wrote!!!! Cardi is a hard worker and through all her fame she remains humble at heart. I find her humility impressive. She’s on top of the world and just getting started. I can’t wait to see her take all five those Grammys she’s nominated for.

  • the guest

    She’s not playing. This girl was READY for her time in the sun.

    She made it popular but it originated with RUPAUL and the drag queens

    The kartrashians stole it from RUPAUL

  • Harley

    Wish RUPAUL could have got his coins since he originated Okuuurrr

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Cardi's stacking those coins, I'll give her that much.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    I didn’t think it was rascist, how both speak. I could get what someone might feel about the commercial or the black and brown person’s articulation, and what it might infer!

    Cardi looks great!

  • Darkandlovely617?

    This week is going to be fun, need to release some stress after the past few weeks we’ve had

  • Rhyme and Reason

    She’s moving product, topping the charts, has the desired demo, MAJOR crossover appeal, fashionable, charismatic , the non-intimidating sexy, dumb, Latina persona, like Sofia Vargara (one of the highest paid women on network television)!

    Reality TV, the Kardashians, and other pop-cult sensations (Youtubers), paved the way for Cardi B’s meteoric rise!

    90s and 2000s artists had to do way more for much less!

    The last artist, I recall browning up like this was Lady Gaga, and she still did more having a multiplatium album, Bad Romance!

    I’m sure she can act, look out for an Oscar buzz! YES, she is loved by some or many Hollywood movers and shakers, just being paired with Steve Carrell speaks volume or the plans for her future!

  • MissMy2Cents

    There are couple of ways to look at this commercial. I think it's aligning Pepsi with who is cool at the moment! In a few years, someone else will be the face. However at this moment, if Cardi say's it "okurr" and Lil' Jon says it's "OKAY" then it must be a great drink. I think it pokes fun at white folks wanting to use urban lingo/dialects or immerse in urban culture but be struggling.

  • HotInCleveland

    A commercial with her aired? Didn’t know until this blog. Anywho, this game was BORING. Grateful for for friends, good food and drinks.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    She was born a Star, her lot in life, God’s will because so many work hard, or even harder, and won’t get even an ounce of her success!

    Some things are destined to be. When I saw her AMA performance, I saw a Star being introduced to the world at large!

    And, this comes from not someone riding her wagon, but the truth is truth, and she’s deserving because we all are when we work for it or even if it’s handed to us, God’s Plan!

    Exactly.. satan got them so blinded, they can’t even see your point... they that selfish.

  • 11pink123

    Why?? They work they whole life for this, the NFL ain’t shot one black person, if anything they have Brought black men out the hood and kept them from getting shot... put that energy where it belongs, the police station.. the NFL ain’t got nothing to do with police shootings.. they don’t even use the police themselves.. they use FBI agents to travel with the teams..

  • Dreadboi

    oh trust I know what you mean..Sometimes is obvious but many either don't care or choose to deny what they saw/see..

  • 11pink123

    They still owned it don’t matter what kind of money they make... That’s why they end up dead when they refuse to go on tour or want to quit... the labels still expect to make money off of them, alive, dead, gone, rich or broke.. So if the NFL said we want Rihanna and we will to give you x amount of $$$ her label would’ve produced her or she would be dead..

    Them record labels are the mafia, once you signed that contract, you pretty much joined the drug cartel.

But now..its just .increasingly boring and no originality or credible quality performances.....this game sucked so bad its as if the rams gave up immediately....

  • Svetlana????

    Cardi B is a moron and her okurrrr thing is just the dumbest thing ever. Steve carrel imitating it is racist? That word is thrown around tooo much

  • 11pink123

    One thing ppl don’t understand is male Entertainers, especially rappers have always been jealous of football players

    Athletes make more money in a shorter period, look better, taller, get more girls and don’t have to sale they soul or suck D—k to get it...

    So to me the rappers are just taking this opportunity to try and stop the athletes shine...

    When they protest Warner brothers and Sony, then I will take them serious...

  • And then there is that!

    Or it could be just an okay sign to go with the okay Pepsi commercial that included the people who are known for saying okay????? just my thoughts but what do I know https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/5f54bbe6d9bb917223a4d863ad058c0a82049c7ea5ec138a8f23d3d43bba64e9.gif

  • the guest

    The NFL won’t admit it but KP’s protest has hit the morale and spirit of the game hard. The worst thing the NFL did was write KP’s protest off as not viable.

    The NFL needs to right this and hire KP. They will see a rise in morale and spirit. Right now the NFL is held back by its own
    stubbornness.

    Even those who don’t agree with KP don’t have the same level of zeal and passion there once was for the NFL. I never liked and never watched football. But I used to feel the excitement around the Super Bowl and the halftime show that was noticeably less in the air this year.

    Or a really great investor. You pump enough money into any entity and you too can create a star. When the investors funds dry up, so will Cardis fame

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Yep!

    But, also this is a ploy to just focus on the Latino/Hispanic market, as hip hop currently dominates music genres. Cardi is just a beneficiary (timing) of this paradigm shift!

    They’re already searching for the next Cardi B. (Commodity) trust! It’s her turn! Entertainers are influencers, look at the white girl rapper, and what she helped beauty company Copycat sell in one day?

    Black R&B is all but, gone, like how gentrification took over Black and Brown Hoods!

    We are being erased (in the music biz) first Black female artists, and then white rappers are coming, and claiming their top spots.

    The Grammys has Alicia Keys hosting, then Janelle Monáe and Diana Ross performing. I guess we have to wait on Beyoncé and Rihanna to drop new music, sadly! Where are our new superstars? Ella Mai’s isn’t even getting, the machine treatment, as she would have in another decade!

    “They” tried it with Black Actresses with Eva Mendez and others, but Keri Washington slayed with Scandal, Olivia Pope, Octavia Spencer and Viola Davis, Tracy Ellis Ross, Taraji, Regina, Angela and others WORK!

  • T Willis

    Really? Because they announced during the super bowl that Adam was donating the $500k that they paid him to the boys n girls club.

  • T Willis

    Exactly.

  • 11pink123

    The super bowl was boring because the Rams were playing.. If the Pats were playing the Cowboys, Saints or Seahawks or something, it would’ve been lit..

    Rams have no super stars on the team...They don’t have loyal fans cause they just moved here and the joy of them going was shattered cause the refs was caught cheating.

    Rams has a young inexperienced team compared to the Patriots...

    It did not take rocket science to know it wasn’t going to be a competitive game...

    Also it was more about the white boys this game, no black standout superstars this game, maybe the NFL is low key trying to be funny and make a point... . It would be real funny if they stop drafting niggaz...?. What would you do if you were in there shoes?

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Your point is well taken!

    The Kardashians are living proof! No matter how many lies they get caught-up in, missteps, bad publicity stunts, they continue until someone pulls the plug!

    Just like they have for so many. The McCarthy Era blew me away, so I know a great investor can cease funds or becom an enemy!

    Cardi isn’t doing major tours yet, so she’s not quite in the money yet, she has an investor, otherwise, she would be amassing serious debt, given her past occupation, she has backup, I hope so!

    Her upcoming Las Vegas Residency, endorsement deals and merchandise will make her some serious cash!

    The sitcom “the office” on nbc? Cmon Sandra

  • 11pink123

    I know but wtf... like why they can’t think for themselves??? omg... it’s so sad to know that some people are really this naive.. ?????

  • the guest

    The NFL like any business also depends on good will of its branding for success and the good will of it's branding has taken a hit. Morale IS own and low morale translates to lower profit. That is a universal business principle.

    Most people don't care about racism to the extent of protesting, white and black, but when KP took his cause to the level of addressing unethical NFL employment policies and targeting and blacklisting whistleblowers, his protest traversed race.

    He has placed the NFL into question and that is a successful protest and not good for business. To have artists turn down the Superbowl Halftime is an indicator for the NFL to re-evaluate.

  • Jethro

    You woke up on a Sunday for this??? ?

  • Jethro

    Because there's nothing to get. Fake News.

  • Jethro

    Damn, and I actually Liked your post above. SMDH. What Kaep protested is what we're protesting, and it has nothing to do with the NFL or the national anthem. Wake up!

  • brooks hill

    dont care about KAP, and it was a defensive game.rams QB shut down by BELLICHEAT. fake fans were bored by this but they dont know football so they say stupid comments like the nfl is rigged. dont watch halftime show because its not football. never cared about halftime shows.

  • KcoolMuziq

    The NFL needs black ownership.

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    No wonder they are not going after her then ! He would have destroyed them if they tried to trademark it or his fans would have . He is unbothered I’m sure by Cardi. I am not sure how much longer she had if she doesn’t really pull all this together and it expand at the same time .

  • SpiceGirl

    Best commercial for ME...was the "FUMBLE" commercial

  • https://www.instagram.com/nymagee/ Ny MaGee

    What's racist about it? I'm asking the "fake" woke Black people....

  • WutizstillHERE!

    So I didn't watch the game but. I thought the commercial was cute. Dude from the office character has always been stupid and culturally aloof so it all ties in..

  • PetiteButterScotch

    All i noticed was the 666 “a-ok” sign steve did I

  • Kim’s Original Face

    Papoose brought up a good point. Folks were fake outraged about Colin but still supporting the NFL events. You refuse to perform at half time but performed at an NFL event and didnt Kraft hop on stage and dance ??? and it wasnt just Belcalis.

    I didnt watch the game instead I watched widows how was the halftime show yall?

  • Lady_Elle

    I liked the commercial it was cute.

    Cardi-B & Jon had little to no lines... and got paid!

  • Ayeola George

    waiting for the response cuz im lost.

  • Tiff J

    I'm going to guess it's racist cause it's showing 2 blk people "butchering" / speaking incorrect English. But I just think we make English cooler when we put our own spin on things. Like Jay Z has said we ARE the culture. WE move the culture forward. OKURRRR!

  • Fatty4387

    That was an event for prison reform that Jay-Z and meek organized kraft was an instrument in getting meek out of jail he is a Democrat and meek is the one that dared him to hop on stage with cardi

  • Kim’s Original Face

    Thank you for clearing that up Fatty!!

  • Kimocha

    I missed the game and the half time performances.... How were the half time performances anyway?

  • Fatty4387

    People were coming for meek about that and he cleared it up

  • Kim’s Original Face

    Im glad! Because he has been making good progress I saw that clip and was like wait a damn minute what is goings on cheaaaa

  • Logan Roberts

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    People always looking for something to be mad at ?????

  • ViolettaBliss

    Nothing out of the ordinary to see here just some regular cooning for $$$$.

  • Trace da Ace

    why is this controversy??? I saw the commercial and did not think much of it...am I missing something????

  • Trace da Ace

    half time show was borrrriiingggg AF.....

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    The halftime show was tragic

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Shut up

  • Reenaface

    Lackluster and underwhelming. Travis rapped two verses, Maroon 5 took over the show but their performance was lackluster, Big Boi was okay...

  • Reenaface

    Me too. I caught that.. good eye.

  • Kimocha

    What songs did Big Boi perform??... Does he even have any recent music out??

  • supastar

    so we ignoring the fact that mercedes benz stadium is next to the Coca Cola factory and Pepsi made all the commercials.

  • Blak

    that commercial was just so weird to watch. It made no sense at all just a bunch of stereotypes in a room trying to make sense out of nothing. I don't even want to see this garbage again.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    It wasn't as racist...it was just jigaboo and caricature-like..I feel the same way about Cardi like I do Tiffany Haddish..they both perpetuate the stereotype that we aren't anything but neck rollin' eye poppin' birds...but Im an honest hoe and I cant hate on the coinage that Cardi got from Pepsi just for clicking her tongue...

  • SweetTEE

    It was literally 2 verses from I love the way you move. Sleepy Brown performed the chorus. I knew he wasn't staying long when I didn't see dancers...it was so boring.

  • Dollmeshia Dee-Dee Clark

    i was wondering the same thing...i asked my hubby was it against the rule for Coca Cola to advertise this year?

  • Dollmeshia Dee-Dee Clark

    you're not alone...smh

  • Dollmeshia Dee-Dee Clark

    same as the game......BORING!

  • Reenaface

    He performed " I like the way you move".

  • Jordan’s Memory

    It was stupid but it wasn't racist.

  • Kimocha

    Damn!... It sounds like it was boring as hell!

  • Kimocha

    That song is old as dust!

  • supastar

    I think they should have been first.

  • Reenaface

    I know, but the NFL needed Big Boi's energy to pull off the super bowl being that was an Alantan.

  • PetiteButterScotch

    I’m sure the subliminals were in full effect. Now only thing missing is a celebrity death following this mass ritual that is the super bowl...

  • Reenaface

    Stay tuned. We still have a few more mass rituals to get through. The Grammys are this weekend followed by the Oscars.

  • MsChocCookie

    Ignorant would be a more suitable word!

  • Jayde da Blade

    Lol...getting paper..

  • Mz_Opinionated

    People LOVE making something out of nothing

  • Karen Brady

    Corny commercial. Steve looks good. I miss The Office.

  • Karen Brady

    "I don't even want to see this garbage again." Same. I just saw it here and don't need to see it again.

  • Karen Brady

    She got it from the Kardashians. Why I even know this is truly a problem for me :-(

  • 11pink123

    But those same artist were all at the super bowl.. That’s what youre missing...so they’re protest is VOID... every seat in that stadium was full.

    Kap.. did not do anything but create more racism. And open the door for more white players to shine.. which is what white ppl want anyway.

    If the NFL was going to change, you would see a black owner and more black coaches..

    You gotta know when you got the power to fight someone. And first of all the NFL has nothing to do with the shootings... They have saved more lives by taking some black men out the hood..

    The NBA can fight the NFL, Warner Bros can fight the NFL, NBC can fight the NFL.. but 45 non factor players and 100 celebs who are slaves ain’t gone make the cut dear.

  • SweetTEE

    Girl, i kept waiting for the coloreds to return and save the show.

  • 11pink123

    But what does the NFL have to do with it?? That’s what we want to know... every sport sing the national anthem... so if you gone protest one, you gotta protest all... and Kap quit protesting, he said he can’t do it forever..all he doing is selling jerseys with his number on it.. you wake up...

  • 11pink123

    Never... but you should.. I know In cali the NFL has taken a lot of men that would be shot or dead out the hood and gave them a chance nobody else would... including men in my family.. so I’m sorry I’m not on bored.. they ain’t shot nobody... and they don’t even mess with the police themselves...The NFL uses FBI agents and military... if they ever use police it’s for security in the stadium. Never for the team.

  • HelloToni

    I like him better w/facial hair.

  • missmiami305

    I still watch the reruns on Netflix. Hilarious!!!!

  • Reenaface

    It's already starting, Kristoff St John from the Young and the Restless was found dead. There's one celeb, possibly two if we include James Ingram.

  • ?jessica?

    Everyone had their own way of saying "ok" what's wrong with that. If they had said it on different languages, would they consider that racist too IJS

  • Coy little wink

    Girrll...so Adam Levine's nipples were ok but Janet's one nipple for 2 seconds was unacceptable... hypocrisy!

  • Chuck

    Corny arse commercial, that didn't seem to have a racist undertone.

  • Let them eat cake

    but the kartrashians didnt start it some guy from ru pauls drag race did.

  • Musiclover

    I want a bedazzled Pepsi can like the one in this commercial , it’s so pretty.

  • Let them eat cake

    true but we are in a different climate today especially with social media and the superbowl has gone down hill sorry to say.

  • Dahl

    Pepsi sponsors the NFL...

  • Svetlana????

    She did it on her own actually

  • supastar

    Oh wow.. thanks for that information.

  • Nik

    I thought the commercial was funny. Move along. Nothing to see here.

  • Nik

    Yes, he is aging nicely. He looks like a grown man now.?

  • Nik

    Very! The whole Superbowl was a snoozefest.

  • gail fowler

    Really, how is this racist?

  • Li-Wright

    One thing I like about her is her smile. She has a $Million smile.

  • gail jones

    Lol @ clicking tongue

  • seun

    Rihanna actually owns her master's. That was why she was able to tell Trump not to use her music at his rally.

  • 11pink123

    Black ppl fight with they mouth and fist. White ppl fight with money and power.

    Please don’t think because they are not loud about there response, they are not responding. Don’t be surprised when less black men get drafted this year.. or less highschool players get less scholarships. Don’t fall into the trap Satan has set in front of you..

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I have heard of The Office, but I never watched it. I only watch cable sports or TV Land.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I agree that today's football is boring. I lived for football back in the '80s when the Dallas Cowboys were America's team. I was a huge fan of Tony Dorsett. I played pool with U of M quarterback Vinny Testaverde in the Rathskeller at the University of Miami. Life was good back then - before the NCAA and the NFL changed the rules and made the game boring and unwatchable.

  • bemetoo

    Shit she paid for that million dollar smile

  • Sassie

    Don't see nothing racist about it. Nothing to see here people. Cardi cleans up REAL nice tho.

  • Sassie

    It's not.

  • Candance

    Racist where????

  • PetiteButterScotch

    Oh wow..but didn’t James Ingram pass away recently? There will probably be more within the next couple of days

  • Reenaface

    Yes, there probably will be more in the next coming weeks hopefully it isn't an elder.

  • HoneyHitchcock

    Don’t forget to include Sponge Bob ??

  • Reenaface

    Lol! I didn't what want the heck was going on with that one. Lol!?

  • HeaVen Sent

    These white folks big tripping and saltine about cardi..throwing the word racist at US as to downplay its true meaning ...soon as they call me racist for pointing out their racism ...I KNOW THEY ARE RACIST without a doubt

  • ca

    No Racist ! THEY have their own way of saying OK and as unique as we are ....Mr. Office does not have one !! Get pay gifted people of color

  • Pebbles

    Which viewers say this commercial is racist? I get it Sandra, controversy sells. Sandra, journalist, and bloggers are trying to create a negative buzz around this for rankings. Demonstrating that latino person can roll R's is not racist. Repeating the way Little J says Ok is not racist. Trying to imitate either one of them no no avail is not racist. But it got us to click so that is all that matters, right Sandra.

  • TheOwley

    It's a stupid commercial but still, I look at Coke and Pepsi and they both black, OK.

  • Tlowe89

    This isn’t a racist commercial. People are just trying to find a way to be upset. It’s a stupid yet cute commercial. Cardi and Jon looked good in the commercial. Pepsi cleaned them up nicely.

  • Jethro

    I just said it has nothing to do with the NFL or the anthem. Learn how to comprehend what you read, troll.

  • Prince Zuko

    Yeah I don't get it. It seems fine to me different people from different backgrounds who use Pepsi as a chase from time to time .......

  • speakinmymind

    Coca-Cola did not waste money on advertising when Pepsi is the official beverage sponsor of the NFL. As such, their contract has an exclusivity clause limiting advertising from Pepsi's competitors during NFL events.

  • speakinmymind

    The good ol days...

  • speakinmymind

    The good ol days...

  • 11pink123

    Well then what are you talking about?? My only point is the NFL ain’t got nothing to do with anything... so why should we not watch the super bowl...

    I get that you saying your keeping it going even the KP quit.., but again why are ppl protesting against the NFL if they have nothing to do with it..

  • 11pink123

    Well then what are you talking about?? My only point is the NFL ain’t got nothing to do with anything... so why would you keep protesting against them... and I don’t take grown men serious that use the word troll... So if looking for a response from me speak like a man.

  • Jethro

    Because he's not and never was protesting against the NFL or the national anthem, TROLL!

  • 1BlueStar

    If banning the super bowl why not ban every event associated with it?? Just asking...

  • Reenaface
  • Interred Ferguson

    Somehow, Pepsi ads always manage to bring the suck. Cardi B manages to be creepy AF, and look like a dude, through most of it. I realize people are going to have catchphrases, and that languages evolve as they always have. Even so, English seems more doomed by the day.

  • https://disqus.com/home/channel/sarah Sarita La Cubanita

    This has got to be the worst commercial I have ever seen. I don't care if these people are blue or green. Since watching it I now have a very negative view of Pepsi. Who wrote this crap? Please fire the writer! If a commercial's excellence shows how good a product is, this one screams out that Pepsi tastes like camel dung.

  • Dr. Spider

    Where is the explanation of how people feel this commercial is racist? I don't see it myself, but do try to see both sides.
