Internet Troll Who Started The Starbucks Cup Outrage Went On CNN Yesterday And Got Murked
Original Video That Sparked The Outrage…
Yesterday On CNN..
(Source) The frenzy over Starbucks use of generic red cups for the holiday season without a direct ode to Christmas began with a video rant from a self-described “disciple of Jesus” and now the latest hero of the anti-political correctness crowd. But Josh Feuerstein has been at this for years, posting hundreds of videos of himself screaming mini-sermons into his Iphone camera. While he has almost 2 million followers on Facebook, (it’s not clear how many of those became fans after the Starbucks takedown went viral) most people had no idea who Feuerstein was before this week. It’s also unclear whether any notable Christian groups have joined his boycott, and some are vocally opposing it.
Feuerstein has long been on the radar of liberal groups, as the left-leaning Web site Daily Kos, detailed in an article Tuesday. They first learned of him when he recorded himself calling a Florida bakery to order a cake with the message: “We Do Not Support Gay Marriage.” When the bakery refused to fill the order, he and his followers cried discrimination and harassed the small business until it was forced to temporarily close.
Feuerstein told The Washington Post in an e-mail that he’s preparing a libel suit against the Daily Kos. He was unavailable to comment further at publication time. Feuerstein’s often incendiary views are part of his whole public persona. Appearing on CNN Monday, he says America is a Christian nation because why else would “Obama have to pretend to be one to get elected?” The other guest on the segment, Pete Dominick, a talk radio host, attacked Feuerstein as a “entrepreneurial bigot.”
Surprise, Surprise! This whole national controversy over Starbucks and everyone yelling at cups was all started because some internet troll who is notorious for trying to CREATE controversy in attempts to go viral. He never actually cared about the red cups, he never cared about Christmas or religion. The ONLY thing he really cares about is his YouTube videos getting millions of views and generating revenue off of them. It just sucks that people are so gullible and eat this shit up. Like one internet troll uploads a video showing how “upset” he or she is, and the rest of the internet gets together and has a big “I’m upset” party. The internet used to be a fun place. It used to be a place where you could escape the uglieness of real life. Now in 2015, all the ugliness has somehow opened the internet door and started taking ugly shits all over the place. Fuck the internet in 2015, fuck the internet trolls and fuck the people who believe the crap and jump on the bandwagon of stupid shit like Starbucks red cups. Last time I checked, red cups were supposed to be for alcohol. You know, fun stuff. Now when we talk about red cups, we think of Starbucks, religion and this internet troll…
Get the fuck out of my face.
