Donald Trump may not be enjoying a Big Mac anymore

McDonald’s may have just lost a customer in Donald Trump following a derogatory tweet slamming the President of the United States as “disgusting”. It also made fun of his small hands.

The tweet reads:

The fast food giant said its Twitter account was hacked and swiftly deleted the post.

It was re-tweeted nearly 200 times and pinned to McDonald's profile before someone realised the account had been compromised.

McDonald’s took to Twitter to dispute the tweet: “Twitter notified us that our account was compromised. We deleted the tweet, secured our account and are now investigating this.”

This is not the first time a fast food brand has been hacked. Back in 2013, someone broke into Burger King's Twitter and changed its Twitter image to the McDonald's logo.
