Honest Tea Scrubs ‘Think Big’ Trump Quote From Bottle Caps

Screen Shot 2015-12-29 at 10.14.46 AMThe bottled organic tea company Honest Tea Monday said it was phasing out bottle caps featuring a quote by Donald Trump, but insisted the decision had nothing to do with the Republican frontrunner’s politics.

Sunday, Honest Tea customer Paul Shapiro tweeted an image of the bottle cap, with the quote, “If you’re going to think anyway, you might as well think big. Donald Trump.”

Shapiro, who works for the Humane Society, told the Associated Press he doesn’t “think of organic green tea consumers as target demographic for Donald Trump.” Honest Tea’s official Twitter account replied to Shapiro, assuring him the company is in the process of removing the quotes from their bottle caps.

Seth Goldman, the co-founder of Honest Tea, said the move had nothing to do with politics, insisting the company was already in the process of removing Trump’s quote as part of their normal bottle cap rotation cycle. Goldman insisted “there’s nothing objectionable to the thought” behind Trump’s words.
