One of the silliest stories so far from the upcoming Christmas Season… Starbucks launched their new red holiday cup and…well…they’re red…and that’s about it. no snowflakes, no reindeer, no santa, no tree and it the land of outrage that is Social Media – people are ANGRY!!!
An guy posted a video on his Facebook page saying that Starbucks “wanted to take Christ and Christmas off of their brand new cups. That’s why they’re just plain red.” He said he “tricked” Starbucks into acknowledging Christmas by telling the Starbucks barista his name was “Merry Christmas” so the barista would write it on the cup, and he encouraged other customers to do the same. Starbucks said it took a cue from customers who have doodled on its cups and is encouraging customers to “create their own stories” on the cups’ blank canvases.
