McDonald's says account 'compromised' after scathing Trump tweet

McDonald's says account 'compromised' after scathing Trump tweet”

Supporters of US President Donald Trump are boycotting McDonald's after the fast food giant's official Twitter account denounced the President as "disgusting".

McDonald's then tweeted that twitter notified them their account was hacked.

The tweet was posted at 9:16 a.m. and pinned to the top of the account.

The tweet called for a return of Barack Obama, who's former press secretary, Robert Gibbs, is the executive vice president and global chief communications officer at McDonald's.

The rogue tweet was posted Thursday morning as a response to Trump's personal account.

The President, a fan of both fast food and Twitter, had not responded but is notoriously prone to engaging in disputes on the social media platform.

The tweet was deleted shortly after it was issued and McDonald later tweeted an update.

McDonald's has not immediately replied to a request for comment.

Last year, Trump told CNN's Anderson Cooper that he enjoys McDonald's meals including filet-o-fish, Big Macs and Quarter Pounders with cheese.

McDonald's CEO Steve Easterbrook has previously spoken favorably about Trump's presidency, specifically about his proposal to reduce business regulations.

Where were you when McDonalds became The Resistance? "I think you're better off going there than someplace you have no idea where the food is coming from. It's a certain standard", he continued.

It wasn't the first time Twitter had a problem with high-profile accounts being hacked.
