There's been a major controversy brewing over Starbucks' recent decision to go with minimalist, red seasonal cups this year instead of its more stylized holiday cups of the past. Many have come out against the change, arguing that Starbucks' move is part of a "War on Christmas" in America and an overall assault on Christianity.

An older version of the holiday cup:

This year's cup:

Social media personality and noted Christian evangelist Joshua Feuerstein was livid over this change, and so was presidential candidate Donald Trump.
