McDonald's called Trump a 'disgusting excuse of a president' and Twitter is lovin' it
Someone at McDonald's posted a brave tweet today in which they called President Donald Trump a "disgusting excuse of a president".
The tweet, which was briefly pinned to the @McDonaldsCorp Twitter account, also stated "we would love to have @BarackObama back" before finishing with "you have tiny hands."
It was however deleted quickly.
We saw you McDonald's, we all saw you
Very disappointed in McDonalds for taking this down. Was really excited to see if Trump supporters were going to dare call for a boycott... pic.twitter.com/DYo5OvfKV3— Nolen Gertz (@ethicistforhire) March 16, 2017
Listen to them. If anyone knows what's disgusting, it's McDonalds. pic.twitter.com/IxTEzjDEvM— James Felton (@JimMFelton) March 16, 2017
Although, there was also fears raised for the future of their social media manager.
When I was 17, I quit my job at McDonald's by running the drive thru shirtless for an hour.— Josh Raby (@JoshRaby) March 16, 2017

Some people, as was to be expected, called for a boycott of the restaurant.

Terri Hickey, McDonald’s US spokesperson said: “Twitter notified us that our account was compromised. We deleted the tweet, secured our account and are now further investigating this.”
