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.

CeeLo Is Now Internet's Newest Meme After Showing Up To The Grammys Dipped In Gold

Award shows are held to a really high standard nowadays. Having a handful of the greatest entertainers the world has to offer perform just doesn't cut it anymore.

Evidently, CeeLo Green was on the same wavelength as the rest of us. He showed up dressed in gold from head to toe, and set the bar high for anyone else hoping to be turned into a meme before the Grammys were over.

In case you missed it, this was the red meat thrown into the cage that housed everyone on the internet.

Once everyone got a look at his costume, things went from 0-100 real quick.

Other people showed up in over the top outfits, but they may as well have come in with jeans and a hoodie. For example, Girl Crush, who I just learned was a person because my fingers aren't as close to society's pulse as they once were, came in dressed as a ball pit. At the very least, she deserves an honorable mention.

But even though he didn't win any awards, he definitely won fans' attention and will forever be immortalized online in a plethora of dank memes.
