Several hours ago, McDonald’s corporate Twitter account was hacked and used to insult US President Donald Trump.
The post referred to the ‘realDonaldTrump’ as “a disgusting excuse of a President” who has “tiny hands” and blatantly called for the welcome return of ‘BarackObama’.
Although the entry was swiftly removed and followed up with an official clarification by the brand, this didn’t stop the repercussion online. Trump supporters declared ‘#BoycottMcDonalds’ while others decided to have fun with incident.
See the humorous comments that surfaced below.
