#ItsJustACup Surfaces Amid Continuing Debate Over Starbucks' Red Cups

The hashtags #ItsJustACup along with #AreYouSerious surfaced this week and had followers disagreeing with those who claimed the coffee giant's red cups weren't festive enough.

Some even called the plain red cups part of a "War on Christmas" and the hashtag #MerryChristmasStarbucks emerged.
