McDonald's corporate Twitter account posted an insulting tweet about U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday and deleted it after 20 minutes as the company said the account was compromised.
The company's answer came one and a half an hour after the incident. Officials said Twitter had been notified that the account had been "compromised".
"We deleted the tweet, secured our account and are now investigating this," McDonald's said.
A company representative said they are investigating the matter, while some social media users supporting Trump have started a new hashtag #BoycottMcDonalds.
