the coffee chains’ recent revival of their original 35-year-old logo which depicts the legendary siren as a bare-breasted beauty has proved a little too racy for some.
A Christian group has called for a boycott of the global coffee chain because the new logo now shows the mermaid naked from the waist up, with only two thin locks of hair preserving her dignity.
‘The Starbucks logo has a naked woman on it with her legs spread like a prostitute,” complained Mark Dice, founder of the group Resistance.
“Need I say more? It’s extremely poor taste, and the company might as well call themselves Slutbucks.”
This is what happens when there are no more “Harry Potter” books to protest. I didn’t even realize mermaids had legs.
