ABC "First watch, I felt bad for her. Additional watches have revealed that she is responsible for all of her misfortunes."—u/jasenzero1"Not only responsible for all of her own misfortunes, but also responsible for MANY of the misfortunes that the islanders experience. I can’t stand Kate."—u/ELI5_Omnia 2. Rachel Berry from Glee. Fox "There are some people who think she's the best character and not a massively annoying, attention-hogging hypocrite."—u/OneGoodRib"The worst part was that she kept being successful, accomplishing almost all of her dreams. It's annoying when a shows keeps pushing a character's success after they do horrible things."—u/jorgespinosa 3. Courtney from Total Drama Island. Cartoon Network "The thing I can't stand about her is that she is a jerk to the host Chris, who is also a jerk, and her ex-boyfriend Duncan, who dumped her for Gwen, who is way nicer and cooler; and also just that she is an out-loud plain bully to the rest of the contestants and puts the prize money over her opponents' lives. She was nice at first, but later on, I just started not to able to stand that about her."—u/Snoo79382 4. Edward Cullen from Twilight. Summit Entertainment "Yes, I know everyone hates the movie as a whole, but the people I know don't seem to recognize a problem with Edward. He's SUPER fucking manipulative, to the point where everyone in the movies acknowledges it but for some reason doesn't think it's a problem. He has a very outdated way of thinking and refuses to listen to Bella even when she's obviously right. He keeps trying to force her to marry him, even though she makes it clear that she isn't comfortable with it, and his stupid little "I have to protect everyone at all costs and no one can do it except me" is super fucking annoying. (I hate literally every character except Rosalie, but not as much as I hate Edward, although Charlie and Jacob and Bella are all pretty high up on my shit list too.)"—u/adressmeashokage"He's basically the embodiment of an abuser/stalker. I'm sorry, but 'I was watching you sleep' is always creepy."—u/Niccy26 5. Jess Day from New Girl. Fox "Any overly quirky character is annoying, but even more so when she’s an absolute beauty with always perfect hair."—u/real_yarrr_shug 6. Albus Dumbledore from the Harry Potter series. Warner Bros. "He was manipulative, secretive, careless with the safety of his students (which bugs me as a fellow educator). But my biggest issue with him is that he knew that Harry was in an abusive household...and Dumbledore left him there. Dumbledore could have chosen other ways to keep Harry safe other than blood wards if it came down to it. But instead, he abandoned Harry every summer to face emotional abuse, neglect, and physical violence."—u/InkMage94"He definitely could have told the Dursleys he was watching their every move and forced them to treat Harry better. Even just receiving the first letters makes them move Harry from the cupboard to a room — imagine if he actually regularly intervened. Yeah, they wouldn't have loved Harry, but they also wouldn't have starved him, belittled him, and allowed Dudley and Marge to physically abuse him."—u/justregularears 7. Ezra Fitz from Pretty Little Liars. ABC Family "He’s absolutely a fucking pedophile — enough said."—u/cloudymeatballs88 8. Elena Gilbert from The Vampire Diaries. CW "Agh, she gets on my nerves."—u/Iza_bella_154"Was there ever a time that she wasn't crying or complaining about SOMETHING? All hail Catherine 😂 ."—u/sssalazarr 9. Lorelai Gilmore from Gilmore Girls. WB "Rory gets plenty of hate, but Lorelai is so incredibly self-absorbed. She was a jerk to her parents, who were sending their granddaughter to expensive private school. The fact that they had to pay for Chilton just to get face time with their daughter and granddaughter was egregious enough. She ordered Luke around like a dog. And frankly, she was kind of mean."—u/redsetded 10. Meredith Grey from Grey's Anatomy. ABC "She's self-important and overdramatic. And I can't believe she didn't tell Amelia when Derek was dying. I would hate having someone like her in my life."—u/TaterTotsAndKetchup 11. Gina Linetti from Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Fox / NBC "Sorry, but she drives me insane."—u/luxxy847"That show is so full of great characters...and then there's Gina. It's obvious they tried sooo hard to turn her into the overly ridiculous breakout character of the show (à la Barney Stinson, Jean Ralphio, Bender, etc.), but she's just not funny."Also, her behavior around Terry is disgusting. She is constantly hitting on him and making gross comments and trying to sleep with him, and it's 100% clear that he is in no way interested and it makes him very uncomfortable. It's painful to watch, especially when you consider Terry Crews' real-life experiences."—u/youfailedthiscity 12. Draco Malfoy from the Harry Potter series. Warner Bros. "I hate how people try to excuse him: "Ohh, poor Draco, he didn't know better!" He's a fucking racist and bully."—u/babyishAuri 13. Peeta Mellark from the Hunger Games series. Lionsgate "I will never get back the joy of thinking he was dead after the second Games was invaded. Honestly, my reasons aren't good enough, like him being whiny and useless because of his upbringing; of course he's no good at killing. I just hate him."—u/BiGunslinger 14. Ted Mosby from How I Met Your Mother. CBS "He's just an a-hole, dating all these women and pretending he's searching for love, then ditching them a little bit later because he's not over Robin."—u/mrynslijk"Plus, Ted is an unreliable narrator. So if this is him trying to make himself look better, imagine how bad he actually is."—u/deyndor 15. Olaf from the Frozen series. Disney "I've never seen Frozen, but just having to suffer through the Frozen short before Coco made me fucking despise him."—u/LegacyLemur 16. Peter Pan. Disney "He’s a cocky little bastard."—u/fuckoffautumn 17. Homer Simpson from The Simpsons. Fox "He endangers his family, is reckless, is putting his family into debt, drinks a lot, uses physical violence against a child, and oftentimes disrespects Marge."—u/plush_crocodile_blow 18. Severus Snape from the Harry Potter series. Warner Bros. "Everyone makes him out to be a hero, but he isn’t. At all. Everyone likes to excuse his actions and behaviors for seven fucking years because at the very end, you see a memory where he 'loves' Lily."First, his love is not a healthy thing. It is an obsession and extremely unhealthy. Second, he borderline (though I think actually) abuses the children he was hired to teach."Severus Snape will always be a horrible character, and Harry should never have named a child after him."—u/Acceptable-Site 19. Tris from the Divergent series. Lionsgate "I read this a few years back, so I don’t remember the exact details, but I remember just genuinely disliking her character deeply, whereas everyone else absolutely adored her. She’s whiny and irritating, and she constantly jumps into self-sabotaging situations, not taking into consideration anybody else’s feelings."—u/Ridzy_jay 20. Cam Tucker from Modern Family. ABC "He's so self-centered and entitled and delicate. Whenever he has a meltdown, everyone's like, 'No, Cam, everyone loves you because you have a big heart and you love everyone!' but when the fuck does that happen? All I see most of the time is Cam fishing for validation and undercutting others to do so."—u/papierdoll 21. Rose Tyler from Doctor Who. BBC "I can't understand why, but it seems that everyone except for me and my friend loves Rose, even though she is one of the most infuriating characters ever written."—u/MiVa1177"She craps all over her then-boyfriend, ruins his life, drags him into this entire mess, and then dumps him. And man, the Doctor has had SO many better choices across every incarnation. He can do better."—u/BasroilII 22. Sasuke Uchiha from Naruto. Pierrot / Aniplex "Just the absolute worst (seems to get better in Boruto, but I haven’t watched it, soooo). There is no sense or logic in his brain, and half the time he looks freaking stupid."—u/LastSeong 23. John Winchester from Supernatural. CW "Fans like him because of his redemption arc, mostly saying, 'He sacrificed himself,' 'He did as well as he could,' 'He did it for his family,' but I still think he was a horrible father to the brothers. That whole John-and-Sam-making-up thing — with Sam finally understanding why his dad was a jerk after all this time — was supposed to be him redeeming himself, but I never saw it, to be honest. John was still a really, really bad father, especially compared with his own son, who practically raised his other son by himself."—u/Flabershlap101 Who's a character most people love but you hate?
