It was once a word used to describe those who hate others for irrational reasons, for the sake of hate itself.

Today, the word is mainly used by those who are hated on, even though they may be hated for perfectly rational reasons.

So we have controversial figures like Kei$ha disparaging such "haters" because they point out her obvious musical, physical and metaphysical short comings, all of which are very much a matter of scientific fact. These people are no more "haters" than they are "people with perfectly valid opinions".
A: y all these haters be hatin????
B: It's probably because you are a disgrace to human beings the world over.

a word that is endlessly thrown around alot but people will never get to the source of the problem with the way they treat it. a hater is a person who hates a person for no apparent reason, and when you ask them, they cant explain why they hate you without sounding like a complete douche. what a hater is NOT, is a person who is just giving an insight or opinion or some discretionary criticism, without holding angry feelings on a personal level, and has a LEGITIMATE REASON to criticize.
the word "hater" has become a censorship discouraging critical thinking and encouraging conformity. this is a political issue if anything

A person who pretends to act happy for your successes than trash talks you behind your back. Someone who most likely dosen't have shit to work with and has to hate on people who move up in the world. This term could be used to describe anyone who hates on another person for 'good reasons. They will turn your good qualities around and make it look like something bad because they just arent happy with themselves and can't achieve anywhere near what you have.
Man, that Vitale is such a hater. He needs to stop drinkin that haterade and move on up in the world.

A person whose jealousy of another person success or achievements makes them verbally nit-pick any flaws no matter how small or just make up flaws in order to somehow try and belittle the successful person.

The term is more often than not used improperly to title a person who simply does not like something or someone because it’s not what they are into.
Hater: there’s no way John could score a chick that hot, he’s gotta be paying her
Dude: man, why do you have to be a straight up hater?

A pathetic term used by idiots to describe anyone who has a different opinion to them.

The people who tend to be considered 'haters' are people who express somewhat of a distaste to an object or person, usually justified by their own views fairly and accordingly.

However, fans of said object or person will often take this the wrong way and resort to abuse (usually over the internet) and call them a 'hater'.

The term 'hater' is most commonly used among pre-teen and teenage girls who go out of their way to 'defend' their teen-pop sensations i.e. Justin Bieber, One Direction, Lady GaGa, Rihanna, etc. They can't handle the fact that their 'idols' are generally considered repulsive and distasteful amongst the majority of people with taste and simply can't grasp why. Therefore they all jump to the conclusion that we're all 'haters' and we are jealous of their fame. Which is complete bull shit.

If you have any brain cells, do not use this word, because you will look like a fool. It's not even a word any way.
I think Queen are overrated. I got called a hater for that.

I don't like Justin Bieber. Or One Direction. Or Lady GaGa. Or Rihanna. Or Cher Lloyd. In fact, I don't like any chart music. This therefore means I am obviously a hater -_-
