Conservatives Protest Starbucks' Newest Holiday Cups, And It's Not About Jesus This Time

It’s just not the holiday season without a Starbucks cup controversy.

This year, conservatives are pointing out a very small detail of the current Starbucks cup design:

You see those two hands, top left? Well, the Christian right is CONVINCED those hands belong to lesbians and that the cups are pushing a gay agenda.

Oddly enough, Buzzfeed News seems to be responsible for drawing attention to this.

After Starbucks released a video featuring a lesbian couple…

…people happily tweeted that they believed the hand-holders on the cups are the lesbians from the ad:

Guess we will see how this controversy evolves over the holiday season.

Conservatives Are Smashing Keurigs In Response To The Sean Hannity Controversy

Alabama Senate candidate, Roy Moore, was accused of initiating a sexual encounter with a 14-year-old when he was in his thirties, in addition to making advances on three other teenage girls. The Washington Post broke the story.

Many feel that Moore got too gentle a treatment from Sean Hannity, with comments like, “Every single person in this country deserves the presumption of innocence,” coming from the Fox News host.

Before long, companies announced they’d be no longer promoting their products on his show.

The one advertiser that pulled its funding from the show that Hannity’s fans got most angry at, however, was Keurig.

As a result, his viewers decided to launch a campaign against the coffee maker by uploading #BoyCottKeurig posts.

Many uploaded videos and photos of them destroying their Keurig coffee makers. 

There was just a lot of hate for the coffee brand, with some people even going so far as to starting the “Keurig Smash Challenge.”

People got creative in their smashings.

Others are just straight throwing them in the garbage.

There’s a counter movement online, however, of people who are vowing to buy Keurigs now after the Hannity outrage.

Hannity, himself, seems to love these videos.

Twitter users pointed out that banning Keurig, along with other protests and crusades carried out by self-proclaimed ultra conservatives, is full of logical gaps.

Tiffany's Just Sent A Message To President Trump, And Conservatives Are Outraged

Tiffany’s Just Sent A Message To President Trump, And Conservatives Are Outraged

It’s been rumored that Donald Trump named one of his daughters Tiffany after the luxury jewelry brand. We don’t know if that’s true, but if it is that just adds an extra layer of interest to this story.

The company made a bold and direct plea to Trump via their social media accounts.

Not everyone was happy to see the jewelry company so unabashedly political.

Tiffany is causing a tiff.

First world problems?

A few people threatened to boycott.

Even with the voices of dissent, most people seemed to support the companies message and stance.

What do you think? Is it OK for companies like this to share their political opinions? If Trump did name his daughter after the store, do you think he will take this message as some kind of personal insult?

We’ll be watching.
