Days after PepsiCo. Inc. officially cut ties with Lil Wayne, the renowned soda beverage company has decided to meet with late civil rights symbol Emmett Till's family.
According to reports, the face-to-face meeting will take place today (May 8).
PepsiCo Inc. officials will meet Wednesday with members of Emmett Till's family and the Rev. Al Sharpton. Sharpton continued to press for the meeting last week after the company's partnerships with Lil Wayne and Tyler, the Creator, of Odd Future to promote Mountain Dew sparked controversies. The meeting to be held at PepsiCo headquarters in Purchase comes as an outcry over offensive lyrics increases.
