A word that contradicts itself because you're accusing someone of ''hating'' what you like then go off and say you hate them. Therefore, you're a hypocrite. It's also overused by most people (dumb asses) who listen to mainstream rap & pop.
7th Grader: Hey did you listen to that new song all the 7th graders are talking about?!

Smart guy: Yes, and it sucks horribly!

7th Grader: You're just a hater!

Smart guy: And you're a ignorant little kid...

not a word but is still used far too much and each time is increasingly annoying. Said to be jealousy, but could be someone who just points out the stupidity in what someone else is doing, successful or not.

side note to people who use this term, just cause someone doesnt like a certain artist or person it does not mean they are mad they are successful- it might just mean they dont like their music and or style or how they go about things.
me- "man lil wayne sucks dick"

hip hop fan- "o yous a hater"

me-"actually he is a very intelligent person who doesnt use his influence on today's youth as wisely as he could."

hip hop fan- "o yous a hater man"

"Hater" is an insult often used by people who are too emotionally attached to a celebrity to accept any criticism of that celebrity no matter how true the criticism is. It is also often used even if the "hater" qualifies their criticism with a positive statement that far outweighs any negative statement made. To call someone a "hater" is an implicit accusation of jealousy, bitterness, and (in some cases) racism. In situations where the "hater" is actually more financially, academically, or socially successful than the accuser, the irony of that fact will always fly over the accuser's head.
Example 1:

A Miami Heat fan: "Steve Nash is one of the best point guards to ever play the game of basketball, but I think that Shaquille O'Neal deserved the 2005 Most Valuable Player award more than Nash."

A Phoenix Suns fan: "You're just a hater".

Example 2:

Me: "Eminem is possibly the best white rapper to ever live, but he is not the greatest rapper of all time."

An Eminem fan: "Shut the #@!$ up, hater."

A label applied to people who are more negative than positive when discussing another person. It most commonly refers to individuals whose negativity is so extreme that it is all-consuming. However, there are various levels and forms of being a hater, ranging from completely dismissing any positive traits or actions, to merely painting a less than flattering picture by using words with negative connotations. Hating is often attributed to jealousy, but just as often, it seems to stem from some other source.

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.
