An extra in Kendall Jenner's ridiculous Pepsi protest ad is speaking out about the experience.

First revelation: Almost everyone in the commercial wasn't American.

"I don't live in the U.S.A. Maybe if I lived there and knew the [issues] before then, maybe I would feel bad," the Bangkok-based actor told People. "But I didn't know anything, so I don't feel bad."

"People say things to me like, 'Why am I in the commercial?' and say that it is really offensive," he said. "It's like, I was just doing my job. They asked me to be in the commercial." He also adds that Pepsi officials discussed the direction for the ad with him beforehand, and he understood it to depict a message of "unity."

"The commercial had hip-hop dancers and we were all together as humans," he continued. "I think they tried to show the meaning that people from every country can be together. That's what I had understood, but maybe now I'm misunderstanding."

The actor added that Kendall was "nice to every person" on set and she "talked when people talked to her." So at least there's that?!
