When Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz vowed to hire 10,000 refugees at Starbucks locations both in the US and abroad, his promise was met widely with applaud.
Some Trump supporters on social media didn't feel the same way though, and started using the hashtag #BoycottStarbucks to protest Schultz's pledge.

Conservatives didn't get too far before people from the other side of the conversation chimed in, and shut them down in the best way.

None of the #BoycottStarbucks people actually drink Starbucks because they were already boycotting over red cups.

Pretty big fan of the #BoycottStarbucks movement. Now I can get my delicious coffee in a slightly shorter and less racist line.

Starbucks isn't alone in its pledge to defying Trump's ban: Nike has also issued a statement saying that the brand "stands together against bigotry and any other form of discrimination."
