It’s been a bad year for the world’s largest coffee franchise who mixed business with politics and made a series of unfortunate decisions that infuriated even their most loyal daily customers. What began with a promise to go against President Donald Trump’s immigration plan by hiring thousands of Muslim refugees, instead of actual Americans looking for a job, ended up with the worst public relations debacle on the planet when actual feces was found in their drinks – presumed to be from unclean customs in Islam. Now, the coffee giant is ending what’s probably their worst year in business, by going out on “bang” after debuting their holiday cup with a disgusting secret message on it. This can only end in a massive loss of revenue with a huge “f-you” to our president and everyone who supports him.
Liberals love to hijack the Christmas season by changing everything about the real reason for the season to meet their sensitivities. President Trump has changed all that this year in a major way by making a long-overdue declaration that here in America we’re going to say “Merry Christmas” again. This is a major problem for lefties who don’t want to see “Christ” in Christmas or for attention to be taken off their agenda. That’s where the new Starbucks holiday cup comes in to secretly stick it to every Christian celebrating Christ’s birth.
Fox News reports:
Starbuck’s newest holiday cups are getting second looks after a Buzzfeed article suggested that they might be “gay.”
The cups feature a busy print of holiday favorites like mittens, presents and Christmas trees, and above the logo, two unseen people are holding hands.
Since the cups launched in October, however, people have taken to Twitter with hypotheses that the androgynous hands may belong to a pair of lesbians.
The idea may have sprung up from a video campaign Starbucks launched, advertising the return of the holiday cups. In the video, two women are seen standing at a table holding hands. The campaign claims, “The holidays mean something different for everyone.”
Many Twitter users seen to have jumped to the same conclusion about the hands, with one person writing, “We’re loving @Starbucks’ new festive ad with a lesbian couple.”

Another wrote, “Great new #christmas campaign from @Starbucks featuring #lesbian couple on the Holiday Cup.”

Critics, meanwhile, are also responding to new hypotheses about the cup, with one on Twitter writing, “The new Starbucks cup has lesbian couple on it. Rom 1:26 ‘because of this, God gave them over to shameful lust’…”
Always letting me down ?

Another called for a boycott, saying, “This Year’s Starbucks Holiday Campaign Features a Lesbian Couple,” followed by the hashtag #BoycottStarbucks.

Starbucks has not confirmed the legitimacy of these suspicions, but did respond positively to a tweet applauding them on their “Christmas campaign … featuring lesbians.”
Despite not owning up to their questionable design that leaves a lot up to interpretation, the company is still defending putting political messages on their Christmas (holiday) cups. In a statement about the purpose of the annual cups, Starbucks claims that they’re just trying to encourage the “spirit of the season.” It’s a nice excuse for their hidden agenda since nothing says “’tis the season” like divisive politics.
“Each year during the holidays we aim to bring our customers an experience that inspires the spirit of the season, and we will continue to embrace and welcome customers from all backgrounds and religions in our stores around the world,” the statement reads.
This isn’t the first time that Starbucks has divided the country with their holiday cup and ruined a perfectly cheerful season with their controversial social statement. They lost a lot of customers last year after rolling out the green cup which sparked nationwide outrage. “One week before Election Day, Starbucks has unveiled a new cup in the U.S. that it says is meant to be ‘a symbol of unity,’ Chicago Tribune reported. “The green cup features a mosaic of more than 100 people, including a coffee farmer and barista.”
“Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz calls it “a divisive time in our country” and says in a statement that the coffee giant wanted to come up with a symbol to serve ‘as a reminder of our shared values,’” the Tribune explained.
If Starbucks really wants to bring people together during this special time of year, they would put politics aside and simply stick to non-denominational images and messages on their cups. The company should really be more focused on what’s going in the cup, in that it doesn’t have traces of feces, rather than what’s on the outside of the cup. However, as long as they are making new winter designs, an appropriate picture they could have used would be a snowflake sine it’s on par with the season and it befitting of the company’s liberal image.
