Hashtag United have faced various challenges, since their inception in 2016, as a YouTube Football Team which has since grown and become a real-life team currently participating in the Thurlow Nunn Eastern Counties Premier Division after winning the league's First Division last season.
However, it would now appear that as hashtag's are being used by alt-right racists as a means by which to spew out their hateful racist rhetoric and pro white supremacy evil, and therefore the side which is run by YouTuber Spencer Owen will face accusations of hatred and fascism if they do not change their name during the summer month's and before the Thurlow Nunn Eastern Counties League AGM.
Hashtag's are now being seen to be code for HH or Heil (Nastyman) with also links to 88 (as the hashtag features eight lines protruding out) and 'ash' which is obviously a link to the deaths of Jewish people at places like Auschwitz. Therefore, Hashtag United will need to act quickly in order to make a suitable name change which does not now allude to any connections nor connotations with fascism and hatred.
Hashtag United have also been previously criticised within social justice communities for being too white and not being diverse enough, as well as not having a Women's team and paying them the same as the more woke Lewes Football Club do.
Nobody from Hashtag United has yet commented on this issue, but it is hoped that Spencer Owen or a club employee will soon speak on this issue.
