The Hartley Hooligans are a pair of sisters, Claire and Lola Hartley, born with microcephaly, a medical condition which is signified by a head circumference several standard deviations below the average. The sisters, both of whom have various other medical conditions due to their microcephaly, have become infamous on the Internet for their physical deformities as well as what is seen as an exploitative attitude from their parents.
The Hartley Hooligans blog was created in 2005 by Claire and Lola's mother Gwen Hartley, though it remained mostly inactive until 2011; in 2012, the blog was voted #17 on a poll about the funniest parenting blogs by the website Circle of Moms. A Facebook page for the girls was started on February 9, 2011, the same day the first new post to the blog in several years was posted, which has over 6,700 likes as of July 2015. On August 21, the first video of the girls was uploaded to Gwen Hartley's YouTube account, which had remained dormant since its creation in 2007.
In 2014, the girls rose to prominence with the video "World's Smallest Ninja", in which their father Scott Hartley plays with Lola as if she were a ninja to the amusement of an off-screen audience. The video has over 160,000 views as of July 2015.
Starting in Spring of 2015, the Hartley Hooligans began to become a regularly posted subject on the imageboard 4chan, notably on /b/. One of the earliest notable threads about the family comes from April 26, 2015. Since then, Hartley Hooligan threads have become a mainstay on the board, often containing various image edits based around ablistic and pro-euthanasia humor as well as a general disdain for their parents.
Claire Hartley was born in 2001 and was diagnosed with microcephaly at three months old. Lola was born in 2006 and was diagnosed with the same condition while still in the womb. The sisters also have an older brother, Cal, who is not affected by microcephaly.
