McDonald’s Holiday Cups Are Slightly NSFW Because They Look Like … Well, You’ll See

Updated

It wouldn’t be the holidays without a controversy over seasonal coffee cups.

McDonald’s is the latest company to cause commotion after releasing their version of the red cup for their McCafé. The holiday design reads “Warmest Greetings” over two white mittens and colorful snowflakes and stars.

It seems innocent enough until you see the version making its way around Reddit with a few scribbles drawn to look like hands. The slight variation does wonders to transform the design into looking like a person spreading their butt cheeks for the camera. (Good luck unseeing it.)

Author Sam Sykes shared the image on Twitter and it has since been retweeted more than 13,000 times.

“Now how the hell are Starbucks cups in the news again and no one’s talking about a guy spreading his cheeks open on McDonald’s cups,” he wrote. The image is tripping up plenty of people who are now unable to see McDonald’s original intention.

Starbucks was under fire last year after releasing a minimalist red cup design sparking a “war on Christmas.” But the McDonald’s controversy is asinine (sorry) in a whole different way.

A representative for McDonald’s could not immediately be reached for comment.
