Chipotle Apologizes After Twitter Account Hacked

Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc.'s Twitter account was hacked on Saturday, with hackers changing the avatar to a swastika and sending a series of racist tweets, peppered with swear words. At least one was directed at President Barack Obama, while others were disparaging of the CIA and FBI. The fast-casual restaurant chain managed to regain control of the account by Sunday and issued an apology to users by tweet. "We apologize for the very offensive messages sent out from our account earlier tonight. We were unfortunately hijacked temporarily," it read.
