By now we’ve heard that there is…. apparently… an issue with the new ombre red Starbucks holiday cups. If you’re like me, you pretended not to notice or care until enough articles were strewn all over your Facebook page and you had to open one and figure out what was going on.
Now that I have, and I don’t mean to be offensive or rude but….
There are people dying! People are fucking dying all around us. There is a houseless epidemic and it’s nearing winter. People are starving. People are fucking dying and we are sitting around debating a fucking holiday cup! Are you out of your fucking minds!?
It’s a goddam cup! Yes I got Starbucks within two days of the cup coming out because it’s pretty and I wanted to treat myself to coffee I can’t really afford and sugar I shouldn’t be having. But it’s just a cup. For many people it marks the start (though early I know but that’s a separate debate) of the winter season/holidays. Big woop!
Get off your high horse and look around you! There are bigger things going on then a cup. Those are things we should be worried about.
