Wow, what a time to be alive in the fast food industry.
The day after unveiling a sleek mobile ordering service, what appears to be a rogue McDonald’s community manager (or perhaps someone from one of their many agencies) unleashed—and pinned!—a rage-filled diatribe aimed at President Trump from the brand’s corporate account.
The tweet was live for several minutes before being removed by the brand. A rep for McDonald’s told USA Today that their account had been “compromised.” Still, people have been having some fun with it.
