The Starbucks holiday cup  has stirred up a great deal of controversy this year. People on social media are responding negatively towards the solid red cup design that Starbucks choose. Many christian Americans believe Starbucks is trying to strip the Christmas message  from the brand and holiday spirit. The controversy continued  beyond the Internet and into the domain of politics on Nov. 9, when Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump suggested that a boycott against the company. In response to the continuing debate over the red cup, many are using the hashtag #ItsJustACup to point out that there are many bigger issues people should be focusing on. I believe that Starbucks is not trying to remove Christmas from their brand but they are appealing to their customers. Every Starbucks customer isn’t Christian and everyone doesn’t celebrate Christmas, it’s only fair that the company stays neutral.
