Twitter Adds Redskins Logo Head to HTTR Hashtag

Twitter now automatically adds Redskins Indian Head logo to Hail to the Redskins hashtag #HTTR

As the Washington Redskins celebrated the opening of a new NFL season in their stadium with the likes of Matthew McConaughey, who The Washington Post calls a ‘well-documented Redskins fan,’ some in Indian Country voiced their disappointment at Twitter’s addition of the Redskins Indian Head logo that automatically populates when typing the hashtag #HTTR, which stands for “Hail to the Redskins.”

For nearly an entire day the #HTTR hashtag trended on Twitter.

Though many fans lauded the #HTTR hashtag and excitement was high with the appearance of McConaughey, the Redskins lost to the Steelers 38-16. And some on Twitter saw some justice in that:

Vanessa Lamers @vlamers: The #changethenames are losing. It's called karma. #changethename#HTTR#ChangeTheName#stopracism#indigenous#nativeamerican#FootballisBack@NFL@Redskins#HTTR

tee antone ?@t6tina1: Come ON STEELERS beat that racial slur named team #HTTR#ChangeTheName
