McDonald’s ‘HACKED’ Twitter account called Donald Trump a ‘disgusting excuse of a president’


"Twitter notified us that our account was compromised," McDonald's spokeswoman Terri Hickey said in a statement to ABC News. "We deleted the tweet, secured our account and are now investigating this."

Twitter would not confirm to ABC News that it had communicated with McDonald's, saying only, "We do not comment on individual accounts for privacy and security reasons."

Trump, who is an apparent fan of the fast-food giant, appeared in a McDonald’s commercial alongside one of the company’s mascots in 2002. He was also spotted chowing down on a McDonald’s burger and fries during the 2016 presidential campaign.

The tweet likely kicked off a busy morning for McDonald's global chief communications officer, Robert Gibbs, who served as press secretary during President Obama’s first two years in office.

ABC News' Daniel Linden and Dennis Powell contributed to this report.
