After the recent controversy around a tone deaf Pepsi ad, a young man in OR made a decision to let white people feel the sting of their own bigotry.
And this special someone is a man in Portland, Oregon, who after seeing the ad, chose to "join the conversation" by walking up to Mayor Ted Wheeler during a council meeting and handing him a can of Pepsi.
The man, who identified himself as a former Boston Globe reporter Carlos Enrique, was seemingly extending an olive branch to Mayor Ted Wheeler after condemning city council-goers for berating the politician.
After taking Wheeler through his thought process, Enrique told him that believes that the problem is "that the language of resistance has not been properly translated". "So this is for you".
"Whoa, whoa, not a good move, not a good move". Enrique then stood up reached into his pocked while saying "This is for you", pulled a Pepsi out of his jacket, and handed it to the mayor.More news: After takeover bid, Unilever announces major overhaul
'Woah, woah, woah, not a good move, not a good move, ' Mayor Wheeler said as police quickly approached Enrique.
"Not a smart move", continued Wheeler, who is also the city's police commissioner. Thank you. I do appreciate it, but don't do that again. For your own safety, don't do that, OK?
Instead there were gasps as the mayor accepted the Pepsi, two security officers rushed over, confiscated the cans, and escorted Enrique out of the council chambers. According to KGW, multiple city council meetings have been delayed or canceled in recent months due to protesters' actions.
Local news outlet Oregon Live reported that meetings of the council were the scene of many acts of protests recently.
