Chipotle's Twitter Account Hacked - offensive tweets about President Obama

http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/chipotle-twitter-hackers-tweet-obscenities-article-1.2107394

Chipotle’s Twitter feed took an unsavory turn early Sunday when hackers seized control of the account and tweeted a string of slur- and profanity-laced messages.

The hackers changed the Mexican restaurant chain’s avatar to a swastika and sent out offensive tweets calling President Obama the N-word and targeting U.S. government agencies, according to The Daily Dot.

Another now-deleted tweet claimed that burrito chain could be closing all of its restaurants by the end of 2015 because Twitter user @TheCeltic666 “poisoned” the meat supply.

The @ChipotleTweets bio was changed to “The official Twitter account of @TUGFeds and @TheCeltic666,” according to NBC Bay Area. Both accounts mentioned have been suspended.
