Team Fortress 2 has 9 distinct characters. Scout, Pyro, Heavy, Demoman, Engineer, Medic, Spy, and Sniper. These characters are easy to remember but they are not locked to a single equipment setup.
On the other hand, Overwatch has 32 heroes and a lot of them have hybridized roles or are locked into a specific role.
If you look into the casual matches, you will be faced with competitive players and can be kicked from the game for not playing the game and being friendly which TF2 allows. If you play in a casual match, you can be friendly, use different taunts and get along with enemies in TF2. Yes! They can kick you from the game but you can join another match.

Tips For TF2 Players That Will Try Overwatch
If you are a Team Fortress 2 player and want to try to play Overwatch, let me give you some tips first before you start downloading Overwatch.
First, you must remember that Overwatch has a meta. If you played TF2 in only pubs, you will know that really, almost every character worked. In Overwatch, it does not work like that. Some players who are good at the game have made a team composition.
Second, you must understand that Overwatch has more objective-based gameplay. In TF2, especially high tower, the game was mostly about shooting others. While in Overwatch, the game is completely based on the objective.
Third, you must remember the ultimates. In Overwatch, every hero has a special ability called an ultimate. This ability requires you to do damage or heal to charge. When you are charged, you can use a character-specific potentially game-changing ability.
The reason why TF2 players hate Overwatch is that Overwatch is strict when it comes to trolling, and almost all Overwatch players are too serious when playing the game. You cannot play or joke around when playing Overwatch because the players might report, kick, or trash talk to you.
