Burger King's Twitter Hack Is A PR Disaster For The Company

Business Insider

Someone has hacked Burger King's official Twitter feed and changed it to McDonalds. 

Everything from the page's logo to its header image has been altered to reflect its rival company.

No one from Burger King has appeared to catch on yet, but a quick read through the tweets shows that it's a PR disaster for the company.

Here are a few damaging tweets rolling out from the account:

We caught one of our employees in the bathroom doing this... #soldtomcdonalds #failurewhopper @mcdonalds twitter.com/BurgerKing/sta…
