The election is over, but the country's biggest controversy continues — yes, we're talking about the Starbucks holiday cups!
Year after year, the coffee chain creates a new holiday cup and gets lambasted both for being exclusionary AND for being anti-Christmas.
As you might recall, there was a bit of backlash last year after the company decided to play it safe with a minimalist approach as the cup was simply red with no fancy design.
