“We’re guessing the @BurgerKing social media team is having a bad day,” tweeted @YourAnonNews, a Twitter handle used by the hacker group Anonymous.
The group claimed responsibility Monday for hacking into Burger King’s Twitter account, turning the logo into the famous golden arches and tweeting under, and promoting, the McDonald’s brand for over an hour and a half.
Anonymous called the hacking operation #OPMadCow and claimed Burger King“[j]ust got sold to McDonalds because the whopper flopped =[ FREDOM IS FAILURE.”
According to Business Insider, Burger King’s hacked Twitter account gained 20,000 new followers. However, the account has been suspended.
Another Twitter handle used by Anonymous tweeted:
“Anonymous Press @AnonymousPress: Also “Burger King’s Twitter” is trending worldwide… first time for everything @BurgerKing, you should be thankful as well! #BKHacked”
Not sure the powers that be at Burger King are lovin’ it today.
