Hackers took control of Burger King’s Twitter account this afternoon and went on a juvenile rampage.

The latter has just happened to fast food chain Burger King’s Twitter account.

The hackers changed the Burger King avatar logo to that of McDonald’s and have been on a hilarious rampage ever since.
