McDonald’s corporate account sent out a tweet about President Donald Trump that should result in someone receiving a pink slip.
The tweet stated: @realDonald Trump you are actually a disgusting excuse of a President and we would love to have @BarackObama back, also you have small hands.
According to USA Today, the tweet came from the verified corporate Twitter account of McDonald’s which has 151,000 followers. It was taken down several minutes later, but not before many people retweeted the uncomplimentary tweet.
Reaction on Twitter was swift, with many condemning the fast food company, and some calling for a boycott.
An apology & the person fired!

Give up McDonald’s. Go to Chick Fil A. Their staff is superb as is their fast food! @POTUS

McDonald’s said in an update on Thursday that its account had been “compromised” and that it was investigating the hack. “Twitter notified us that our account was compromised. We deleted the tweet, secured our account and are now investigating this,” it said.
