Burger King's social media team is having a bad day, as Anonymous group LulzSec takes over its Twitter feed.

Burger King's Twitter feed has become the talk of the Internet today, and for all the wrong reasons. 

The fast food chain's tweets were taken over by a pro-McDonalds' voice assumed to be associated with Anonymous affiliate group LulzSec shortly after noon EST on Monday.

The account was suspended about an hour later. 

Burger King's profile had its header and bio replaced in addition to their tweets commandeered (and subsequently mocked — see our Storify below). 

There is no news yet as to whether Burger King has contacted Twitter to get control of its account back, but the company has so far remained silent about the hacking, The Next Web reported.
