NYC lawmakers passed a soda ban that prohibits all sugary drinks served in cups larger than 16 oz, and New Yorkers are not thrilled about it.

“He’s a douchebag,” said a Manhattan Starbucks patron, who identified herself only as Brittney as she ordered a green tea Frappuccino. “He has money to waste … I wanna know if his kids go to public or private school.”

According to recent polls, a majority of the city’s residents oppose the idea, calling it an infringement on freedom of choice. More than 250,000 have joined the New Yorkers for Beverage Choice coalition, along with corporations such as Coca-Cola and Pepsi and major movie theaters.
