McDonald’s mocked for Black Friday Twitter fail

It has became a tradition almost as sacred as Thanksgiving itself, that after the food is done, restive Americans battle each other to fierce combat in the quest for deals on Black Friday.

Now, McDonald’s is facing mockery after their own Black Friday initiative seemed to stall out of the gate.

“Black Friday **** Need copy and link****,” the company tweeted early Friday morning.

As of 9:00 a.m. eastern the tweet was still live with more than 9,000 retweets.

Representatives for the fast food icon were not immediately available for comment.

The Internet, however, had plenty of comment!
