The message read: “@realDonaldTrump You are actually a disgusting excuse of a President and we would love to have @BarackObama back, also you have tiny hands,” the tweet said.
McDonald’s promoted it as a pinned tweet on its account, which has more than 151,000 followers, before wiping it within minutes, before going back to their regular fun inclined messages.
The tone of the message itself was weird given that Donald Trump has never hidden his high regard for the restaurant chain and their marketing philosophy. the question remains,is this why big mac,an iconic American chain was targeted as a vehicle for the message?
The company later said it had apparently been hacked.
“Twitter notified us that our account was compromised. We deleted the tweet, secured our account and are now investigating this,” McDonald’s said in a statement.
The fast food-loving President appeared in a McDonald’s TV ad in 2002, in which he praised the business acumen of the purple blob Grimace character. McDonald’s again, enjoyed prominence during the past presidential cmpaigns as Donald Trump was shown enjoying a meal from the chain in his private jet, between stops.
