Jackson, Miss. (WJTV) – There’s a controversy brewing over the new holiday cup design for Starbucks.
The cups have a red, gradient design without Christmas ornaments on them like the coffee chain has used in the past.
A former pastor slammed Starbucks because of the new design. He even took to social media to tell people how to trick baristas into putting Merry Christmas on the cups.
Starbucks says the new design encourages customers to tell Christmas stories in their own way.
