McDonald’s has apologized after it sent an insulting message to President Donald Trump and said its Twitter account was “compromised”.
The company tweeted: “You are a disgusting excuse of a President and we would love to have @BarackObama back.”
Not long after the message was removed, McDonald’s tweeted: “We deleted the tweet, secured our account and are now investigating this.”
McDonald’s said that it had been notified by Twitter that the account had been “compromised”.
It was not clear whether this meant that the account had been hacked or taken over by a rogue employee.
