People were so furious about this Pepsi ad that Pepsi pulled it after just one day. Watch it here and decide if it's offensive:

"Just had a woman stub her lit cigarette into my face at Caboolture Court... Charming," Bernhardt tweeted.  

Bernhardt told Daily Mail Australia that she had "a bit of a red mark ... but I don't want to blow it out of proportion, it's gone now. It certainly wasn't something I was expecting when you're doing your job."
