The husband of a cop killed on 9/11 has returned his late wife's Glamour Woman of the Year award because Caitlyn Jenner was given the same award last week.

The man, James Smith, told The Post he mailed the posthumous award given to his wife Moira back to the magazine after hearing Jenner would be honored.

A rep from Glamour defended the magazine's decision to give the award to both women.

"We were proud to honor his wife . . . in 2001, and we stand by our decision to honor Caitlyn Jenner," a Glamour spokeswoman said.

"Glamour's Women of the Year Awards recognize women with a variety of backgrounds and experiences."

WTF of The Day: Some Christians Are Upset Because Starbucks Christmas Cups Don't Have Snowflakes

Starbucks has just entered the "War on Christmas" with one bold, unthinkable move—having a red Christmas cup?

That's right. Some Christians are upset because the Starbucks Christmas cup for this year is plain red instead of decorated with snowflakes or Christmas trees.

As a form of protest, people have started using the hashtag #MerryChristmasStarbucks to spread the message of outrage.

And some people are saying their name is "Merry Christmas" at Starbucks so the barista has to write it on their red cup.

Starbucks REMOVED CHRISTMAS from their cups because they hate Jesus ... SO I PRANKED THEM ... and they HATE IT!!!! #shareUse #MERRYCHRISTMASSTARBUCKSFollow --> Joshua Feuerstein

Jeffrey Fields, Starbucks vice president of Design & Content, had this to say about the cups:

"In the past, we have told stories with our holiday cups designs. This year we wanted to usher in the holidays with a purity of design that welcomes all of our stories."

"Starbucks has become a place of sanctuary during the holidays," he said. "We're embracing the simplicity and the quietness of it. It's more open way to usher in the holiday."

It definitely sounds like Starbucks is out to destroy Christmas. eye roll

Controversy of The Day: Walmart Clothing Display Resembles Hanged People

Do you see anything wrong with this Walmart display?

A lot of people do. And they're calling it insensitive as best and racist at worst.

Some customers at a Walmart in North Las Vegas were outraged at a clothing display they say looks like people being hanged from the ceiling.

It may seems like a stretch to make the comparison—but is it really?

A local reporter went on the street to ask what people saw when they looked at the display.

"...A little like the Ku Klux Klan, black people hanging from the ceiling," said one woman.

Other said it looked like people being hanged, but some saw nothing.

Walmart has yet to respond to the situation, but the display has been taken down. Intent aside, it is clear that the display struck a chord with many who saw it.

Don't Do That of The Day: The Weeknd Says Taylor Swift Couldn't Stop Stroking His Hair

Taylor Swift just can't keep her hands to herself.

Singer Abel Tesfaye, better known as the Weeknd, says that when he first met Swift she kept "petting" his hair.

He described the bizarre encounter with Taylor Swift in Rolling Stone:

"But the whole time she was talking," he says, "she was kind of, like, petting my hair? I think she was just drawn to it — she must have been a little gone off a few drinks. And of course I'm not going to be like, 'Hey, can you stop?' I mean, it felt good! But when she started petting my hair, that's when I was like, 'I definitely need a drink.'"

For those clueless individuals out there, touching a black person's hair is normally a cultural no-no. And it really doesn't help Swift's image when she also makes music videos like this.

Word of advice, Taylor. Next time—just don't.

A 50-foot Norwood spruce in Reading, PA is the focus of ridicule this holiday season, with locals calling it "sad," "nasty," "pathetic," "ugly" and even comparing it to Charlie Brown's disaster of a tree.

"If there was a squirrel right now looking for a place to live in the Winter," said one resident. "It won't even go into this tree."

"I've never seen a tree look so horrible in all my life," said another person. "That tree is atrocious."

Don't hold anything back Reading...

As a result of all the outrage, city officials decided the thing needed to be put out of its misery, and after raising money from local businesses, it is scheduled to be replaced this week.
