Starbucks red cup controversy

Posted:

(CNN) -- A former pastor is slamming Starbucks for its latest holiday coffee cups.

The cups are plain red, without the Christmas ornaments the coffee chain used in the past.

Joshua Feuersten, who calls himself a social media personality, says that Starbucks hates Jesus.

He posted a Facebook video that tells customers how to trick baristas into writing "Merry Christmas" on the cups and he's asking those customers to later post photos of those cups on Twitter.

Feuerstein claims the video has more than 10 million views.

Starbucks says the cups are meant to encourage customers to tell Christmas stories in their own way.
