Life is not all Rainbows, Big Macs and Multiculturalism. With so many self glorifying liberal Z-list celebrities and irrelevant brands (looking at you Starbucks) attacking the 45th president of the United States with far left ideologies and threats of employing illegal migrants over American citizens (again, looking at you Starbucks) it seems the evil capitalist Golden Arches empire, has now also stepped foot into this food fight.
McDonalds literally, has literally declared ‘’beef’’ with President Donald Trump. We’re not joking.
On March 16th, McDonald’s official corporate Twitter account posted a rather not so nice message describing Trump as a “disgusting excuse of a president”.
So, was it a case of the crafty Hamburglar up to his sneaky tricks, a Burger King under cover spy or a rogue McDonalds employee, simply stating what many of the McBrand actually think over there? Hmmm, something smells fishy here and it’s not a Filet-O-Fish.
Speaking of Filet-O-Fish, Trump is actually a fan of the Ronald McDonald franchise; he has gone to say that “I think the food is good. I think all of those places, Burger King, McDonald’s, I can live with it,” he said.
So to attack the “loving it’’ President is not a very clever marketing idea, especially when Trump has previously starred opposite McDonald’s alumni charterer Grimace in a commercial advertising the brands Big N’ Tasty snack, as well.
After the incident, McDonalds soon released a statement claiming that their account had been hacked stating that ”Twitter notified us that our account was compromised. We deleted the tweet, secured our account and are now investigating this’’.
The full supposedly hacked tweet read: “@realDonaldTrump You are actually a disgusting excuse of a President and we would love to have @BarackObama back, also you have tiny hands.”
The tweet was pinned to the top of the chain’s Twitter feed for the entire McUniverse to see.
McDonald’s moved quickly to delete the tweet from its feed, but seemingly just as “quick” as its fast food service, because it was simply was not quick enough, because by the time it was removed, its 151,000 followers had already sent the tweet to go viral.
McDonalds should know by now that nothing really dies on the internet, regardless of who flipped the burger with this tweet, sales of Big Macs are now set to fall drastically, with many Trump supporters promising to boycott the iconic fast food brand after tweeting messages including, “It’s McWar” and “We’re not lovin’ it”.
Some have even gone as far as to encourage McDonald’s shareholders to sell their stock and turn their back on the crumbling franchise for good.
If the boycott does take place this will indeed be the final nail in the coffin for Obamacare, I mean with obesity down, who needs a healthcare plan, right?
Maybe McDonalds should keep out of politics and learn how to cook a decent burger instead, and if it is an inside job, we hope someone gets fired and loses their McPension over this. Sorry Hillary, but this is one hacking job you can’t blame the Russians for.
