Leave Starbucks Alone; There's no Christmas Cup Controversy

I don't care about the Starbucks red cup controversy. Maybe that's a lie. I do care. I care that it's even a thing. People love to find anything to get mad about, especially things you shouldn't be mad about.
These are the reasons why I think this "controversy" is dumb.

It's absurd to expect every company, school or organization to share the same values as you. Starbucks never disowned Christmas; it even stated it wanted the cup design to be all inclusive in its Nov. 8 press release.

"In the past, we have told stories with our holiday cups designs," said Jeffrey Fields, Starbucks vice president of Design & Content. "This year we wanted to usher in the holidays with a purity of design that welcomes all of our stories."

Let's not forget that its stores look pretty Christmas AF, and it's not even Thanksgiving yet! They even have a special edition Christmas Blend coffee and an advent calendar!
The style is chic. I kinda like it. It's ombré and minimalistic, which is pretty in style, and Starbucks is just trying to stay on trend. Starbucks just needs to do one big hair-flip and continue to slay because we all know we can't live without it anyways.
