McDonald’s in a tweet on its corporate account called President Trump “a disgusting excuse of a President” on Thursday morning.
The tweet, which was briefly pinned to the top of the account before being deleted, mocked Trump and called for the return of former President Obama.
“@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 read.
McDonald’s later tweeted that it had been informed the account was “compromised.”
Trump was once in a commercial for the fast food giant, and has posted images eating McDonald’s food on his social media accounts during his campaign.
Former Obama press secretary Robert Gibbs is the executive vice president and global chief communications officer at McDonald’s.
Twitter notified us that our account was compromised. We deleted the tweet, secured our account and are now investigating this.
