One of my favorite Starcasm graphics of all time was the Farrah Abrahamburglar created for our post about Teen Mom Farrah Abraham’s Twitter account being hacked. Little did I realize I would be able to reuse it in an even more appropriate setting! Earlier today Burger King’s Twitter account was apparently hacked and the account’s graphics and name were all switched over to McDonald’s. The first sign something was amiss was the tweet, “We just got sold to McDonalds! Look for McDonalds in a hood near you @DFNCTSC”
That was followed by a series of ridiculous tweetegery that included the announcement of a new Bath Salt burger! (I wonder what they would call that in France?)
McDonald’s has claimed innocence in the matter, and even tweeted a bit of sympathy for their competitor: “We empathize with our @BurgerKing counterparts. Rest assured, we had nothing to do with the hacking.”
Anywho, the account has since been suspended (since the last thing a company would want is for their Twitter feed to be hilarious and interesting!), but I was able to do some screen caps before it disappeared and have all the Mctweets for you:
