Guy tries to be Kendall Jenner, gives mayor a peace Pepsi at city council meeting … it ends badly

A Portland, Oregon man found out first hand that bringing peace through Pepsi isn’t as easy as Kendall Jenner made it look.

Carlos Enrique, a protester at the Portland City Council meeting, made what could have been a fatal mistake with the soft drink, the Oregonian reported.

Enrique, who claimed to be a former reporter for the the Boston Herald, approached Mayor Ted Wheeler with his hand in his coat pocket and then pulled it out and reached toward the mayor.

“How could someone just endure people coming and berating you every week?” he said of the city council meetings that have been frequently protested.”What I realize is that the language of the resistance has not been properly translated to you. So this is for you.”

The startled mayor explained that in a bigger city Enrique’s move, which was an apparent mimicking of Jenner’s much maligned Pepsi commercial, could have resulted in dire consequences.

“Whoa whoa whoa,” Mayor Wheeler said. “Not a good move… Not a smart move. Thank you. I do appreciate it, but don’t do that again. Please, folks, do not do that. For your own safety, don’t do that, okay? I appreciate it.”

“Welcome to Portland,” he added. “If this were the Boston City Council, that would’ve ended differently.”
