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 its 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 10 a.m. ET the tweet was still live with more than 11,000 retweets.
Representatives for the fast food icon were not immediately available for comment.
The internet, however, had plenty of comment!

This will probably get more awareness than their originally planned tweet…

And yes, we would like fries with that.
The company issued a statement via Twitter on Friday morning making light of the incident.
