McDonald’s Corporation attacked President Trump on Thursday, tweeting that he is a “disgusting excuse of a president” and has “tiny hands.”
Not long after the tweet went live, the company blamed the tweet on a hacker.
Twitter notified us that our account was compromised. We deleted the tweet, secured our account and are now investigating this.

Do you believe it was a hacker or do you think McDonald’s is trying to cover up their true feelings due to public backlash?
This isn’t the first time a major company has gone political and paid the price for it. When Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank came out in favor of Trump and his policies, the company’s stock tanked and he received a lot of flack for his decision.
It would be nice if more large companies came out and voiced their political beliefs, so we can know which companies to boycott, like McDonald’s in this case.
