Kendall Jenner is leaning on the support from her family following a Pepsi commercial controversy. The brand withdrew the advertisement due to a backlash, which saddened the 21-year-old model.

“Kendall is still not happy about the controversy,” a source told PEOPLE. According to the news outlet, Kendall Jenner was working overseas when the commercial was launched and it instantly got negative feedback from the social media community.

Kendall Jenner planned to lie low until things cooled down, and she still talks about her controversy many times. "She is spending a quiet weekend with her family,” the source added.

The Victoria's Secret model keeps a steadfast communication with her mother, Kylie Jenner, and with her siblings. The "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" clan is highly supportive and is prepared to impart some pieces of advice to Kendall Jenner. "Kendall is young and certainly not used to being involved in such controversy,” a source of the family added.

“She has been very upset. She feels terrible. She loves being a model. To get a Pepsi gig was a big deal. She was very excited. She never expected it to receive such backlash. She hopes people understand that she wasn’t involved in the creative process,” the source continued.

According to Mic, Kendall Jenner air traveled to Los Angeles from Paris on Friday, Apr. 7 to find comfort from her family. It’s a time for her to be with the other "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" members while the newest controversy she is facing circulates online.

The advertisement was entitled “Live for Now Moments Anthem.” It featured Kendal Jenner while taken with photo shoot to be with the group of people who are having a rally in the street.

The commercial ends up with Kendall Jenner passing a can of Pepsi to a police officer. The law enforcer opened the top, took a gulp and is welcomed by the strange yells of regard from the protesters.
