1. An expression of complete indifference to the target's opinions.

2. A pathetic attempt at a witty comeback, most commonly used by Deviantart/Youtube users who are unable to stand criticism.

Originally, this term was used sparingly, and only when it truly stung, much like "That's what she said". However, like "That's what she said", it has been spammed so far into the ground by the aforementioned "artists" that it's simply pathetic.
1. Someone overhears a jealous douchebag talking down on them, responds with an over-the-shoulder "Haters gonna hate", which shatters the trash-talker's massive ego.

2. Someone posts a mildly critical comment on a hypersensitive Youtube user's video, to which the user replies "FUCK U HATERS GONNA HATE FAG BLOCKED LOL"

Mantra for those unwilling or unable to accept any kind of criticism, or simply too mentally deficient to come up with an articulate response

What people say when caught in the act of doing something ludicrously stupid or otherwise wack.

It implies that the criticism their acts receive is due not to their own stupidity and naffness, but instead to some unexplained enmity on the part of whoever points it out.
Cornell is walking along the street with a set of clunky gold caps on his teeth, rendering himself almost unable to speak.

Bystander: What the fuck is that idiot doing with those pieces of metal in his mouth?

Cornell: Haters gonna hate

Bystander: Wait - now your trousers have fallen down completely!

Cornell: Haters gonna hate, fule, haters gonna hate
