Would you like some fries with that snark?

Social media is calling for heads to roll after the McDonald’s corporate Twitter account mocked President Trump and called for the return of former president Obama.

The 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 sent out at 8:16 a.m. ET Thursday morning, and was briefly pinned to the top of the McDonald’s account before being deleted.

Numerous people captured a screenshot of the offensive tweet before it mysteriously disappeared.

McDonald’s posted a response more than two hours later, claiming its Twitter account “had been compromised.” The fast-food giant said it was investigating the matter.

President Trump has a long history with McDonald’s. The billionaire starred in a McDonald’s TV commercial in 2002, and has posted photos of himself eating its fries and hamburgers during his campaign.

Interestingly, former Obama press secretary Robert Gibbs is now the executive vice president and chief communications officer at McDonald’s, which caused some to wonder if the Twitter diss was intentional.
