Twitter Adds Redskins Logo Head to HTTR Hashtag

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:

They have been and always be losers except for one brief period in their football history. What they need to do in order to be "Winners" again is to honor their owners people. Dan Snyder should rename the team the Washington Kikeskins in honor of all the jewish people in America. When he does that then you will see this teams luck turn around. Go Kikeskins!!!
