Starbucks is under fire from some Christians who say the designs lack the Christmas spirit such earlier versions that featured such things as snowflakes, snowmen and holiday trees.
‘Look at this cup,’ DeGeneres said this week. ‘You might as well call it a Satan sipper’
She added: ‘Now this holiday season if you want Christmas with your breakfast you are going to have to do it the old fashioned way. You have to get really, really high and then you have to go to iHop and just stare at your pancakes and go, “I see baby Jesus in there.”‘
For those who want to stick with Starbucks, DeGeneres suggests wearing a pair of ‘Starbucks holiday vision glasses’ so that ‘you see Christmas everywhere you look. … Don’t wear them when you’re driving but if you do, let Jesus take the wheel.’
