However, an exceptionally huge situation was noticed soon afterwards, when the self-described Evangelist Joshua Foyerstein published a now sadly familiar tirade on Facebook, slamming the election of the design of the coffee chain. He exclaimed in the video: "do you realize that Starbucks actually wanted to remove Christ and Christmas from their own completely fresh cups? That's why they are elementary red!"
Feierstein wasn't alone in his own anger. In the same year at the election rally, the old candidate Donald trump has criticized the cups, suggesting that in fact that Starbucks "no more"good Christmas". No more."
"Perhaps we are in the footsteps of boycotting Starbucks," trump added.

"They have a good set of images that play at Christmas from a reddish and greenish point of view," said Egan. "But if you look at a star, for example, it just has the ability to freeze the star of David."
Egan said, in fact, that she thinks, in fact that some groups, these as limited Christians, have all chances to actively find fights with the plans of Starbucks because of the positions that the firm took on specific tasks, this as same-sex marriages.
