Generally, a hater can be described as a person who dislikes and defamates a person, group, or concept for various reasons. There are three types of haters in the world, their categorization based upon their reason(s) for said hating. All of the following are said to engage in the consumption of Haterade.

1. The Hillbilly Hater - This is the hater that no one really takes seriously because of his ancient views and racial superiority complex. The Hillbilly Hater wishes there were still lynchings every weekend at McAveddy's farm and blames the Jews and Mexicans for his own lack of wealth. You know you've met a Hillbilly Hater when he claps and cheers when watching The O'Reilly Factor. This hater is not limited to any one race or ethnicity, but applies to anyone who blames another group of people for war, poverty, famine, termites, and his insufficient phallus.

2. The Compensator Hater - Possibly the most infuriating of haters, the Compensator Hater makes negative connotations or outright talks trash on peers and often friends not out of any true hatred, but to make himself look less pathetic. Jealousy is a key factor and cockblocking is his forte. If a girl shows interest in you and not him, you can be sure this hater will go behind your back and tell her that you already have a girlfriend. Because you work out at the gym and have a stronger physique than the Compensator Hater, he will spread false rumors about how he "heard" that you might be on steroids. This one, however pitiful, is to be avoided at all costs (or better yet, exposed).

3. The Trend Hater - This one can be heard bashing things in a culture that he or she perceives as lame. This can be done because the music, films, hobbies or food he or she likes isn't really popular, or out of genuine animosity toward a particularly annoying trend. This hater can be a jackass who rants about the glory of everything "underground", but some are integral in bringing honest-to-god ridiculous things to a halt. It is only acceptable to be a Trend Hater if your hate is directed at the right things, such as poseurs, wearers of pink shirts, anything emo, and anything that insults your intelligence or your heritage. Those who hate what is popular only to project an image of "I know what's cool and you don't" should be regarded merely with laughter and ridicule.
Hater 1: Yisterdee that ther durn'd junglebunny kiss'd mah daughter while a wetback jump'd muh fence and a hebe stole muh hard errn'd dollur!

Normal Person: Wow, you're an idiot.

Hater 2: Uh, Jenn, you might wanna know first that Steve has Genital Warts and does steroids. It'd be best if you stayed away from him. Just looking out for you... baby.

Normal Person: Do something with your life instead of bringing people down, loser.
--------
Hater 3: Harold and Kumar go to White Castle? That film was so pedestrian. I prefer the unmarred young talent of IFC films, thank you very much.

Normal Person: Haha, way to deny yourself something good because it's popular.

...All real-life examples of the three types of haters.

1.
A person that simply cannot be happy for another person's success. So rather than be happy they make a point of exposing a flaw in that person.

Hating, the result of being a hater, is not exactly jealousy. The hater doesnt really want to be the person he or she hates, rather the hater wants to knock somelse down a notch.
Susan: You know, Kevin from accounting is doing very well. He just bought a house in a very nice part of town.

Jane (hater): If he is doing so well why does he drive that '89 Taurus?

4.
A term used by others, usually being suburban "gangsters", whose lives are absolutely and undeniably defined by what others think. These people "rumble" often and think of themselves as original and/or indestructable. People that use the term "haters" are the lowest stage of the evolutionary scale. They bleed the fastest and have thought processes similar to that of a mentally underdeveloped cat.
"Why you hatin' on me?"
"These haters be up in my grill!"

5.
A person that develops a strong dislike for another, solely basing their own opinion on personal judgment rather than objective merit. The formation of a hater's contempt commonly arises from jealously and/or resentment. Individuals that make fun of, or "hate," others for justified reasons cannot be legitimately classified as "haters;" although many faggots attempt to rationalize their own situations by doing so. Additionally, the word "hater" is frequently overused, mainly by members of the rap and hip-hop communities.
John is a hater of the 'Jersey Shore' MTV cast because they have more money than him, not because they are incredibly fucking annoying.
