The Internet Is Not Happy (Again) About Starbucks' New Cups Right Before The Holidays

Who could forget the red cup controversy of 2015? Many customers were convinced that Starbucks was anti-Christmas for removing winter-themed graphics from their holiday cups. And it looks like history is repeating itself this year. Well, sort of.

On November 1, Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz announced new green cups. He released a statement explaining that the cup’s design of more than a hundred people drawn in one stroke is a reminder of our “shared values and the need to be good to each other.” He added that the design was created to be a symbol of unity, especially during this election season.

Naturally, social media freaked out that these cups were replacing the traditional red holiday cups. One Twitter user called the design “political brainwashing,” while others blamed it for ruining Christmas.

While we can’t say definitively that these are not the official Starbucks holiday cups, there have been leaked photos of red cups that might also be for the holidays. Hopefully we’ll have an answer soon! At least so the Internet can relax for a hot sec.
