Have you heard about the Starbucks red cup scandal? Apparently, some folks are really angry that the coffee chain’s cup for the Christmas season is all red and doesn’t says “Merry Christmas” on it.
Even Donald Trump weighed in on the controversy last night:

Although not everyone shares Trump’s outrage over the cup’s design:

If you're frothing over a red cup, might I suggest a Trenta-sized portion of pumpkin spice get-real? pic.twitter.com/ZGTZRXP42k

From the looks of it, last year’s cup didn’t say “Merry Christmas,” too:

So they’ve taken off snowflakes for 2015 and that’s what all the fuss is about?
