There are no more Christmas and holiday symbols on the cup. Are you offended yet?
Here’s What Starbucks says
“We have anchored the design with the classic Starbucks holiday red that is bright and exciting,”said Jeffrey Fields, Starbucks vice president of design and content. “The ombré creates a distinctive dimension, fluidity and weightedness.”
So far so good, ombre.
But that has some people up in arms
“The Starbucks coffee cup change smells more of political correctness than a consumer-led change,” British conservative MP David Burrowes told right-wing website Breitbart London
“What is it about Christmas that Starbucks are afraid of celebrating?” the Christian Institute’s Simon Calvert told Breitbart.
“Haven’t they heard it’s the most wonderful time of the year, and the season of good will to ALL men? They should get involved and stop being scrooges.”
Some People Are Mad
