You’ve got to hand it to dedicated supporters of President-elect Donald Trump; they know how to fight a good cause. They’re protesting against Starbucks.

Oh, wait.

It’s actually nothing to do with the coffee chain’s tax arrangements, and more to do with standing in solidarity with a man who had to wait a little longer for his vanilla latte and blamed it on ‘anti-white discrimination’.

In response, Trump supporters are making Starbucks staff write ‘Trump’ on their coffee cups when asked for their name.

Twitter user Baked Alaska kicked off the backlash, calling on people to film the incident if staff refused to write 'Trump' on their cup.

#TrumpCup has been trending ever since, with people posting proof of their brave attempts to sock it to the oppressed ethnic minorities living in fear since Trump was elected. Thankfully, the hashtag has been hijacked:

More: Trump supporters were asked if they believed in 'core American values' and the results are terrifying
