‘Compromised’ McDonald’s Twitter account disses Trump
The McDonald's fast food chain says their Twitter account was compromised. They took the tweet down, but not before netizens saw the tweet and took screenshots.

MANILA, Philippines – Getting insulted online is nothing new for controversial United States President Donald Trump.  This time, however, it came from an unexpected source: McDonald’s official Twitter account. 

The twitterverse exploded on Thursday, March 16, when the fast food company’s official Twitter account, @McDonaldsCorp, tagged Donald Trump in a tweet calling him a “disgusting excuse of a President” and saying that they “would love to have @BarackObama back.”


McDonald’s eventually took the tweet down and issued a statement saying that their account was “compromised” and that they are now investigating the matter.


Netizens were quick to catch on though, with screenshots of the tweet quickly going viral, generating all kinds of reactions from Twitters users.

While some called for a boycott of the fast food chain, some praised the fellow behind the tweet.
