McDonald's tweet calls Trump 'disgusting excuse of a President'

McDonald's tweets to Trump 'You are actually a disgusting excuse of a President'

"We deleted the tweet, secured our account and are now investigating this", the company said.

McDonald's did not immediately respond to a request from the Globe for comment on the tweet, but the company posted a follow-up message saying its account had been "compromised".

The @MCDonaldsCorp account posted a tweet indicating that the controversial tweet was not something the company approved. Now, the conservative Twittersphere is afire with #BoycottMcDonalds hashtags and Euro-Twitter is full of "I'd love to see Americans not eat McDonald's" jokes.

President Trump is known to be a McDonald's fan. That's the way it looked Thursday morning when a tweet was posted slamming Donald Trump with insults, both on a personal level and as the president of the nation. Before Puzder withdrew, Easterbrook said that Puzder's experience as a fast-food executive provided him with a good understanding of entry-level jobs and overregulation affecting small businesses.

Eagles sign free agent WRs Alshon Jeffery, Torrey Smith
Jeffery caught 52 passes for 821 yards and 2 touchdowns in 12 games for Chicago past year despite serving a four-game suspension. Regardless, it was a classy and professional statement put out by Jeffery that offers some closure for his time with the Bears.

McDonald's also made an appearance on Trump's campaign in an Instagram of the then-presidential candidate eating a burger and fries from the fast-food giant. Not only are they beholden to spruiking their product day in, day out, they also have to avoid pushing out content which would even mildly perturb their core audience.

"Fortunately for McDonalds, a majority of Trump supporters live off their value menu and will be unable to protest their product", one Twitter user wrote.

Mr Trump, who appeared in a McDonald's commercial in 2002 alongside Grimace in Trump Tower, is yet to make a statement.

McDonald's isn't the first company to publicly distance itself from Trump, with Skittles and Tic Tacs both politely rejecting his claims in the past, but this has definitely been the most direct.
