Do players get salty a lot in Overwatch? Is it as bad as League of Legends?

Salt exists, but it's not nearly as bad as LoL.

You can always leave voice chat or mute bad actors quickly, salt exists most in lower-ranking games. Gold & Plat is often the 'salt zone' whereas higher ranking games tend to have more people that can provide actually constructive criticisms.

It's an online game, so of course there is a lot of salt. Anonymity is the father of toxicity. That said, I'd say no game comes even remotely close to the toxicity of league.

It's a popular online game, so you're going to run into some toxicity from time to time. That being said, it's not as bad as LoL/Dota 2 etc. - you'll typically run into more incompetence than toxicity (at least in non-ranked play).

I haven't played much, but it hasn't been too bad from what I've seen.

Go play Black Desert Online and then try saying that.

It's toxic in competitive most of the time.

Stick to Quick Play or Arcade if you want to have fun.

If you stay out of Comp then it’s usually fine. You don’t run into a lot of toxicity in Quick Play, although you will at some point.
