Most simply, a playa hater is someone who openly criticizes, purposefully attempts to sabotage, or who indulges in any number of other activities/behaviors aimed at someone they consider a playa, or even at playas in general.

The derogatory aspect to the term comes in the idea that the person who's hatin is really only jealous -- they playa hate because they wish they could be as successful, or alternately wishes they could somehow have the playa to themself.

So, of course, quite often a playa hater is someone who at some point or other feels they were done wrong by a playa.
"I was trying to talk to this girl, but she was hanging out with this dude who's a total playa hater. Everything I said, he tried to turn it around to make me an asshole..."

See also "Player Hater." A hater, of which playa hater is but a subgroup, partakes excessively of criticism and negativity. The defining characteristic of a playa hater is that the hater's ire is directed at someone who has achieved some level of success (where success may be measured in terms of scrilla, macking ability, or general pimpness). It is inferred that the source of the playa hater's dislike is rooted in jealousy, and not some other justifiable reason.
