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.

As for the rest of us, we’re just eagerly awaiting the impending response from Wendy’s.
