Alec Baldwin Jumps To Kendall Jenner's Defense In Pepsi Ad Fiasco

The model is a "very young, inexperienced woman in an awful business," he wrote.

Alec Baldwin believes Kendall Jenner is no soda jerk.

On Thursday, the actor defended Jenner’s appearance in a reviled Pepsi commercial that was pulled after severe backlash.

The actor, best known these days for impersonating Donald Trump on “Saturday Night Live,” said on Twitter that the 21-year-old model is inexperienced, and her management should bear the blame for the fiasco.

The ad, which features Jenner breaking the tension of a demonstration by handing a policeman a can of Pepsi, invited heaps of scorn for trivializing real protest movements and was removed by Pepsi on April 5. As of Friday morning, Jenner has stayed mum since the controversy blew up. 

But Baldwin had plenty to say over social media.

Not surprisingly, Baldwin inspired a spirited debate with other Twitter users.

Take this exchange, for example:
