McDonalds sent out a very nasty tweet to Donald Trump early Thursday morning. However, thirty minutes later, the tweet was taken down and then they company tweeted that they had been hacked.
Here is the original tweet sent out, just after 9am:
More than an hour after the incident, McDonalds tweeted this:
Twitter notified us that our account was compromised. We deleted the tweet, secured our account and are now investigating this.

So was this a compromised situation? Maybe the work of an angry employee or perhaps it was a hackers? The incident has already started a boycott hashtag, #BoycottMcdonalds. So whether it was someone from the fast food company or not, their sales may take a hit.
