McDonald’s had to yank a tweet today after a hacker used the chain’s official Twitter account to call Donald Trump “a disgusting excuse of a President.”

“Also you have tiny hands,” the post asserted.

The post was reportedly pulled a few minutes later. McDonald’s acknowledged to the media that its account was hacked and said it was investigating the breach.

 

 

The hijacking followed a flurry of hackings yesterday by political extremists who castigated the governments of several nations as Nazis. The victims included the web form of Starbucks Argentina, Forbes and Duke University.
