Official McDonald's Twitter Roasted Trump, Company Says Account Was Hacked
Donald Trump, despite being elected the President of the United States, tweets like an angsty teenager who had their haircut roasted online by strangers. Or at least, that's how I would describe it.
In fact, he's been trolling people on Twitter for years. He trolled people way before he was officially running for President. In my opinion, it's kind of pathetic.
But now that he actually managed to get elected, he's become an even bigger target for Twitter beefs. Our 45th President, and what I would call a national embarrassment, isn't just receiving hate from Alec Baldwin and Snoop Dogg, but for a few minutes on Twitter, he was the subject of McDonald's ire as well.
It all started with this tweet that came from the fast-food chain's official Twitter account that was quickly taken down.
"@realDonaldTrump You are actually a disgusting excuse of a President and we would love to have @BarackObama back, also you have tiny hands."
In case you've never looked at the official McDonald's Twitter before today, this is the kind of tweet you'd expect from the burger giant.
Politically charged rhetoric against Trump isn't something that Mickey D's is really known for.
After 20 minutes or so, McDonald's noticed the Trump-sulting tweet pinned to the top of its page and couldn't take it down fast enough.
Not before amassing more than a thousand retweets, however.
People were lovin' it.
The media snafu actually looks like its good for business.
And it's not like people are going to forget what happened anytime soon, either.
No matter how hard corporate tries.
Some are seeing upsides to the tweet as well.
While others made some incredible jokes.
McDonald's provided an official response to the tweet, saying that the company's account was compromised.
Which is good news for Donald, because the man seems to love his fast food, especially his Mickey D's.
He seems ambivalent about Diet Coke, though.
Do you think McDonald's actually had its account hacked? Or was an employee just looking to lose their job that day?
