Candace Cameron Bure Smacks Down Starbucks Christmas Cup Row

"Full House" star and outspoken Christian Candace Cameron Bure has rallied to Starbucks' side after some religious people slammed its Christmas coffee cups.

The coffee giant has rolled out a simple red cup for the holiday season that has some Christians accusing it of a "war on Christmas."

They're upset that the cup doesn't have any Christmas images, or any of Jesus Christ.

One critic said, "Starbucks removed Christmas from their cups because they hate Jesus."

But Bure disagreed in an Instagram post that showed up on Monday.

Starbucks War on Christmas? It's a red cup, folks. Until Starbucks puts a baby Jesus or nativity scene on the cup while saying Merry Christmas, then pulls it because they say it’s offensive, let’s talk. I don't remember Starbucks ever being a Christian company, do you? A Santa, a snowflake, some holly, a polar bear, some jingle bells or plain red cup don’t define Christmas for me as a Christian. My relationship with Jesus does. So, I will joyfully sip on my Starbucks coffee, in a plain red cup, and instead of complaining about the lack of decorations, I will lovingly share the good news of Jesus Christ with friends and co-workers or anyone who's willing to engage in conversation. Merry Christmas to all!

Bure has certainly espoused controversial views in the past.

Earlier this year, she defended bakeries that refused to bake cakes for LGBT couples in a segment on "The View."

That had Raven-Symone shaking her head.

But let's be frank: Bure isn't wrong when she says Starbucks is just putting out a red cup.
