Starbucks took some serious heat last year over their red holiday cups that totally lacked any seasonal flair, but that didn鈥檛 stop them from keeping their minimalist and somewhat nontraditional theme going strong. This year they鈥檝e released a green cup (yep, GREEN!) along with their holiday drinks, and folks are not pleased. Though we still have to wait for the official release of the annual red cups (if we will indeed see red cups this year), you definitely need to check out the hate the green cups are getting right now on social media.

Though there鈥檚 definite confusion as to whether or not these are the annually awaited holiday cups鈥

There鈥檚 no doubt at all that they鈥檙e not liked. At all.

Note to Starbucks: Whatever the actual holiday design is this year, perhaps it鈥檚 best to stick with red, that is, unless the backlash buzz is what you were looking for.

Do you like the green cup design (whether or not it鈥檚 the holiday cup)? Tweet us @BritandCo!
