‘Tis the season to pile on Starbucks, for this company is catching even more controversy. It’s only been about a month since the nefarious red cups squashed the Christmas spirit, though their critics were laughed off cable news networks (and even Donald Trump joined in the debate). Alas, the world eventually figured out that only a vocal few were genuinely offended by the red cup design.
This may be the case with the Starbucks polar bear cookies, which are making internet rounds. Some people find the design hilarious (because it is). See the scarf? Some people think it looks like a slashed and bloodied neck. These jokes are pretty fitting.
