#TrumpCup: Trump Supporters Troll Starbucks into Calling Out President-Elect’s Name for Drinks
Trump’s relationship with the coffee company is complicated, to say the least. Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz endorsed Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election, whereas Trump once told supporters to boycott the company because they didn’t say “Christmas” on their red cups for the holiday season.
On Wednesday, a Trump supporter received major media attention after he was filmed yelling about anti-white and anti-Trump “discrimination” because his Starbucks order took too long. In what may be a response, Trump supporters are using the hashtag #TrumpCup to taunt Starbucks employees and make them call out the President-elect’s name:
1) Go to Starbucks & tell them your name is Trump
2) If they refuse take video

Ask for Trump on a cup = SJWs call the cops.
Start a riot = SJWs call it expressing yourself.

So, refusing to write Trump on a cup is ok.
Refusing to bake a gay cake is not ok.

You can do this at restaurants where you're waiting to be seated also. They will call out trump when a tables available. #TrumpCup

Of course, there’s a certain irony in attacking a company by giving them business.
Starbucks didn't serve a Trump supporter, so now other Trump supporters are getting back at them by… buying Starbucks? Morons. #TrumpCup
