People Think Starbucks Holiday Cups Are Anti-Christmas

According to people with tons of time on their hands, the new Starbucks holiday cups are an anti-Christmas symbol. Insert eye roll here.

This year (also known as the year that Starbucks ruined Christmas) Starbucks holiday cups, which swap in for the traditional green cups in honor of the holidays, feature a simple red ombre design. Naturally, people are very upset about this, as they believe Starbucks has done away with Christmas symbols because they are launching a "War on Christmas" with their political correctness.

Oddly, Starbucks rarely puts Christmas symbols on their cups at all - most of their holiday cups feature "wintery" things like snowflakes - so this controversy feels completely misplaced. Starbucks is a huge international company, so it makes sense for them to want to be neutral about the holiday season. Of course, this neutrality is now making certain people, like pastor Joshua Feuerstein, call Starbucks out for being "anti-Christmas."

Starbucks REMOVED CHRISTMAS from their cups because they hate Jesus ... SO I PRANKED THEM ... and they HATE IT!!!! #shareUse #MERRYCHRISTMASSTARBUCKSFollow --> Joshua Feuerstein

Sadly, Joshua isn't alone in his outrage over cups. Some people are demanding that Starbucks brings back Christmas by telling them that their name is "Merry Christmas." If I roll my eyes any harder, they will be in the back of my head:
