Haters gonna hate

"Haters gonna hate" -- an Internet meme and modern proverb. What's a "hater"? What's the history? And what's with "hate"? Read more about it in this NPR story.

"Haters run the gamut — from disrupters at political rallies to sign makers at sports contests, from erudite misanthropes to semiliterate missive senders, from stand-up comedy hecklers to dish-served-cold revenge-seekers.

They can be passionate or passive-aggressive. They can be smart or stupid. But nowadays they seem to be everywhere."
