Burger King's official Twitter account was hacked Monday and turned into a digital billboard for rival fast food chain McDonald's.
Whoever targeted the @BurgerKing account changed the avatar to the iconic golden arches and started sending tweets around noon like, "We just got sold to McDonalds! Look for McDonalds in a hood near you @DFNCTSC."
In the past hour, some posts from the account have contained racial epithets, references to drug use and obscenities. The account has also tweeted: "if I catch you at a wendys, we're fightin!"
Another was retweeted to say "Somebody needs to tell Burgerking that 'whopper123' isn't a secure password."
Burger King Worldwide Inc., which is based in Miami, suspended the account an hour later.
