McDonald’s Says Anti-Trump Tweet Came From A “Compromised” Account

McDonald’s says its official Twitter account was “compromised.” The original anti-Trump tweet has since been deleted. “@realDonaldTrump You are actually a disgusting excuse of a President and we would love to have @BarackObama back, also you have tiny hands.” McDonald’s say the “compromised”account has been secured. The tweet was posted at 9:16 a.m. Thursday and pinned to the top of the McDonald’s Twitter account before it was deleted about 20 minutes later. No word on who slammed POTUS but about an hour later, McDonald’s tweeted: “Twitter notified us that our account was compromised. We deleted the tweet, secured our account and are now investigating this. I’m not sure if “compromised” means that McDonald’s Twitter account was hacked or a current or former employee acted on their own and went rogue with the post. In 2013 Burger King’s logo was changed to McDonalds by a hacker and Jeep was hacked saying it it had been sold to Cadillac. Yesterday several high-profile Twitter accounts were hacked with images of the Turkish flag and anti-German and anti-Dutch messages including Nazi symbols. The verified accounts compromised included Amnesty International, Forbes and the Atlanta Police Department.
