McDonald's calls Donald Trump a 'disgusting excuse of a president' in 'compromised' tweet
McDonald's official Twitter account was compromised earlier today, resulting in a controversial tweet about Donald Trump posted to its 3.39m followers.
A tweet has appeared on an official McDonald’s Twitter account calling Donald Trump a “disgusting excuse” for a president and saying it wants Barack Obama back.
The message lasted less than half an hour on the McDonald’s Corporate Twitter Account before being taken down, suggesting it wasn’t sanctioned by the company.
In full, it read: “@realdonaldtrump You are actually a disgusting excuse of a president and we would love to have Barack Obama back, also you have tiny hands.”
The fast food chain posted a follow-up tweet to explain that their official Twitter account had been compromised.
One wonderful consequence is the resurfacing of this fabulous ad Trump did for McDonald’s a fair few years ago.
Twitter notified us that our account was compromised. We deleted the tweet, secured our account and are now investigating this.— McDonald's (@McDonaldsCorp) March 16, 2017
