Stephen Colbert has found the perfect solution to the Starbucks red cup controversy.
The “Late Show” host suggested that Starbucks should not only give in to demands to return Christmas imagery to their holiday coffee cups, but take it one step further.
“Remember Starbucks, Christmas is the season for giving — into any demand anyone makes on the internet, which is why I say don’t fight this,” Colbert said. “Give the customers a cup crammed so full of Christmas they’ll be picking tinsel out of their yule log for months”
Colbert then debuted his own Starbucks Christmas cup, complete with lights, ornaments, and a manger scene hot-glued to the lid.
He also mocked Joshua Feurstein, the man who posted a video online suggesting that Christians all across America should act against Starbucks until the original cups are returned. “Paul Blart, Mall Bro is right,” Colbert said of Feurstein. “And based on how fast he’s talking, I’m guessing that’s not the first cup of coffee of the day.”
