A hacker used McDonald's Twitter account to attack President Donald Trump in an extremely derogatory tweet early Thursday.

Sent at 9:16 a.m. ET Thursday morning, McDonald's tweeted: "@realDonaldTrump You are actually a disgusting excuse of a President and we would love to have @BarackObama back, also you have tiny hands."

HACKERS HIJACK TWITTER ACCOUNTS WITH SWASTIKAS, 'NAZI HOLLAND' MESSAGES

The tweet, which was sent out to the 151,000 followers of the @McDonaldsCorp account, was retweeted more than 200 times, before being deleted.

In a subsequent tweet, McDonald's confirmed that the account was hacked. "Twitter notified us that our account was compromised. We deleted the tweet, secured our account and are now investigating this," it said.

McDonald's has not yet responded to a request for comment on this story from Fox News.

Following the hacked tweet, the phrase Big Mac was trending on the social network, in apparent reference to the exchange.

McDonald's is the latest Twitter acount to fall victim to hijackers. A slew of high-profile Twitter accounts, including Amnesty International, BBC News North America and the European Parliament were hijacked on Wednesday.

The tweets in Turkish, which included Swastikas, appeared to be a reference to the growing diplomatic tensions between Turkey, Holland and Germany.
