Sarah Palin on Tuesday weighed in on the social media buzz surrounding Starbucks's red holiday cups, describing it is a "non-controversy." 
Palin wrote on Facebook that "some grinches on the Left take things too far in attempts to make all us jolly revelers look ridiculous, lumping us in the same box concerning misplaced outrage over a coffee cup's non-controversy."
The 2008 Republican vice-presidential candidate said that her daughters spent time working as baristas and encouraged followers to "enjoy your festive cuppa'joe."
Palin included an image of her 2013 book, "Good Tidings and Great Joy: Protecting the Heart of Christmas," which focuses on "the true meaning of Christmas."
Other political figures have weighed in on the coffee company's sleek red design for its holiday cups, which in previous years have featured reindeer and ornaments.
"Do not buy in to the media hype surrounding this story!!" Bristol Palin wrote on her blog on Monday. "It is just another attempt by the LEFT to make Christians look stupid."
