Frozen foods company McCain Foods raised eyebrows of Twitter users in Britain and around the world when a critical tweet appeared on its official newsfeed, listing "all the things" ruined by the UK Prime Minister Theresa May.
The list included "human rights, Europe, the NHS, democracy, LGBTQ rights, corn fields and ABBA." The last item on the list referred to Mrs. May using the Swedish band's famous hit ‘Dancing Queen' as background music while she walked on stage during the Conservative party conference on Wednesday.
The post was quickly deleted but not before it was saved by users online, who then shared it on Twitter. User Callum Mason said the tweet by McFoods was "rather unexpected."
Whoever does their Twitter might have tweeted it by mistake, maybe thinking they were logged into their personal Twitter account. Retweeting this could cost someone their job.— Christopher (@BlueprintPod) October 3, 2018

Well don't you sound like a lovely person. Should learn a thing or two from Mrs May and dance more. Might cheer you up.— Wagwan (@unoriginal_oped) October 3, 2018
The person that sent that is currently on a packing line in the blast freezer without a coat or gloves!— Stuart Anderson (@StuAnderson69) October 3, 2018
McCain spokesperson reportedly commented on the incident.
"This tweet was posted in error by a social media manager, and was not endorsed by McCain. It was immediately removed," the spokesperson said.
