Christians Upset Over Starbucks Cups Are Trolling Baristas

That'll teach 'em.

Posted on

By buying coffees and telling the barista their name is "Merry Christmas" so it appears on their order.

Spurred on by evangelical Christian Joshua Feuerstein, people have been uploading images of their coffee orders to social media.

But that hasn't stopped people from trying to troll their local baristas.

Just look how Christmassy this is.

'Tis the season! 🎅🎄☕️

Some customers, however, are showing their support for Starbucks employees.

Starbucks doesn't hate Christmas or Christians. Cut the crap. #MerryChristmasStarbucks

While others are having their own ideas.

Still, many are determined to get into the Christmas spirit.

Im asking Starbucks to put Merry Christmas on my cup. #MerryChristmasStarbucks

After all, the best way to object to a company you disagree with is to continue buying their products.

#merrychristmasstarbucks They called my "name" and I said Merry Christmas to you as well @Starbucks
