McDonald’s may be in some hot fryer oil with President Donald Trump after a Twitter hack this morning.

As NPR reported, McDonald’s executives woke up to find that the chain's corporate account had tweeted negatively about Trump, saying that the company wished President Barack Obama still held the White House.

"You are actually a disgusting excuse of a President and we would love to have @BarackObama back," the tweet said.

McDonald’s later deleted the tweet, which had been pinned to its social media page.

McDonald’s apologized for the tweet later in the morning.

Trump supporters immediately rushed to the president’s defense, igniting the hashtag #BoycottMcDonalds on Twitter.

Trump made headlines about a year ago when he told CNN that he enjoyed fast food chains, like McDonald’s. He also celebrated the Filet-O-Fish and Big Mac sandwiches.

"It's great stuff," he said.

Trump also once posted a picture of himself eating a McDonald’s meal on his private jet.
