A lot of people are seeing red after drinking from Starbucks’ new holiday cups. But it doesn’t have anything to do with their solid-coloured shade.

The coffee chain unveiled its new holiday cup design late last month, and we already reported that we thought it was pretty boring. The company describes it as a “two-toned ombré design, with a bright poppy color on top that shades into a darker cranberry below,” but really it looks like one of those red, plastic cups that you likely drank out of back in your college partying days.

At the very least, one would assume that selecting a cup like that, while boring, would at least be a safe bet, right? After all, how could people possibly get offended over a simple, minimalistic, boring old red cup?

Yeah, well…about that.

“The Starbucks coffee cup change smells more of political correctness than a consumer-led change,” U.K. Tory MP David Burrowes told Breitbart London. “What is it about Christmas that Starbucks are afraid of celebrating? 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.”

That’s right, Burrowes believes Starbucks has gone and declared war on Christmas…with cups. And he’s not the only one.

Starbucks REMOVED CHRISTMAS from their cups because they hate Jesus … SO I PRANKED THEM … and they HATE IT!!!! #shareUse #MERRYCHRISTMASSTARBUCKSFollow –> Joshua Feuerstein

Some people actually plan on boycotting the store

No snowflakes=no business

But isn’t red a Christmas colour?!

Some people just seem confused about the whole thing

Others were quick to point out some flaws in the argument

But this guy was just dropping truth all over the place

It just goes to show: Christmas should be about a lot more than some coffee chain’s newest cup.

Happy holidays!
