Hacker Calls Out Donald Trump From McDonald’s Official Twitter Account

McDonald’s needs to step up on their tech game.

A few months out of seeing one of their drive-thru intercoms getting hacked, the fast food chain’s Twitter account was apparently hacked this morning.

Whoever was able to get into McDonald’s Twitter account used it as a megaphone for their feelings about current President Donald Trump and how they’d like to see former President Barack Obama back in office.

The tweet was deleted within a half an hour, but not before getting over 1,000 retweets and picking up coverage across the Internet, according to NPR.

Trump supporters took to their usual internet outcry upon discovering the tweet, with many predictably calling for a boycott of the fast food giant.

McDonald’s has control of their account back now and announced that their account was hacked and that an investigation is being conducted to determine exactly who was responsible.

Now that McDonald’s has confirmed they didn’t tweet out the message, maybe the #BoycottMcDonalds tweets will stop coming?

I mean, President Trump does love himself a good McDonald’s burger.
