“@realDonaldTrump You are actually a disgusting excuse of a president and we would love to have @BarackObama back, also you have tiny hands,” a tweet posted Thursday morning on the official McDonald’s Twitter account said.

The tweet was pinned to the top of the fast-food restaurant’s Twitter page, making it the most visible message on the social media page.

It disappeared within minutes.

In a message posted to Twitter about an hour after the initial tweet first appeared, McDonald’s said its account had been “compromised.”

“We deleted the tweet, secured our account and are now investigating this,” said the tweet, posted around 10:20 a.m.
