On January 29, the Starbucks CEO and chairmen, Howard Shultz, announced that the company plans to hire 10,000 refugees at different Starbucks locations around the world. Shultz sent an e-mail that slammed Donald Trump’s executive order banning travel from predominantly Muslim countries.

In response to Shultz’s letter, many Trump supporters have decided to boycott the popular coffee chain. Trump’s supporters have been using the hashtag #BoycottStarbucks all over social media. Mark Romano writes on Twitter, “Love your country. Save money. Drink better coffee.#BoycottStarbucks!”

However, many people are using #BoycottStarbucks to encourage people to buy more Starbucks in support of Shultz’s decision. Twitter user, @Indecisive_Mari, wrote, “I came on to #BoycottStarbucks thinking they did something terrible. Nope. They are being decent human beings. Thank you @Starbucks.”

Despite the #BoycottsStarbucks trend, the boycott isn’t working in the US, and Starbucks sales in the US keep rising.

Since Starbucks released their statement, Trump has been surprisingly silent on the issue and hasn’t tweeted about the uprise.
