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?

A term used to deflect criticism and erect a mental dissonance that allows one to ignore further criticism in continued delusion of one's own competence, skill or talent.
In addressing someone's inability to sing in tune.

Person 1: You're not good a good singer.
Person 2: Nah, I want to believe that I'm good. Therefore, you're just a jealous hater and you're opinion is worthless.

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.

The most non-insulting "insult" in existence. It's a waste of breath to say it and a waste of energy to type it. This term is often used by pre-teen girls whenever someone insults their favorite teeny bopper singers. If you ever call somene a hater, find the nearest knife and use it pierce your lungs for polluting our air with that fucking stupid word.
Smart person: "Justin Bieber has no talent"

Pre-teen girl: "lik3 oMG fuk offf u hater ! !!"

Smart person: "Kill yourself"

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 -_-
