A McDonalds anti-Trump tweet sent throughout the twitter-verse was done by hackers says the company. 

The fast-food chain confirmed on Thursday that someone had hacked into their corporate account and made an entry unbeknownst to them.

The words in the post, since deleted, said Trump was a “disgusting excuse of a President,” and wished Barack Obama would come back.

It also took on a personal nature saying in closing, “you have tiny hands."

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

Several of Twitter's other high-profile accounts have been breached including Forbes Magazine and pop celebrity Justin Bieber.

McDonald’s does not offer much on social media about their political position, instead focusing more on their menu items and business practices.
