11 Things People Only Fake Their Hate According to the Internet

Are you one of those people who pretend to despise something you secretly love? It’s like the person who gets caught eating in the neighborhood Arby’s after saying they haven’t eaten fast food in years. Skeptics believe there are many other instances where people only pretend to hate something for clout, machismo, see the reactions of others, or other reasons.

1. Guy Fieri

The frosted tips and in-your-face persona give a stronger first impression than a bottle of Donkey Sauce. But when you listen to Guy Fieri for more than ten minutes, he seems like a pretty down-to-earth, self-deprecating dude. One Guy fan points out that Fieri should not catch so much flack simply because “he dresses and talks like he’s still in the ’90s.”

2. Drama

The people who write novel-length social media posts about hating “drama” sure seem to find themselves in plenty of Facebook comment section squabbles, don’t they? These people hate drama in the same way that a Jerry Springer guest hates drama. If “hate” means “actively seek out and exacerbate,” then these drama queens and kings are telling no lies.

3. The Pop Star of the Moment

George Michael. Milli Vanilli. Justin Bieber. Taylor Swift. Heck, even Michael Jackson had a Neverland’s worth of haters. The latest pop sensation will always garner the most vocal vitriol. How many of those critics would you catch, at the least, humming along to “Billie Jean” when it comes on the radio, if not belting the lyrics out shamelessly?

4. The State They Don’t Live In

Coloradoans could never live in Florida! With that humidity? Keep your beaches and favorable tax policies. I’m a cold-weather cat. Floridians aren’t snowbirds. They’ll remind you, but instead, warm-blooded flamingos. They couldn’t imagine dealing with snow for more than a week out of the year. And don’t even get them started on the snowboarders… Everyone needs to defend where they live. In reality, Floridians would be just fine in Colorado and vice versa.

5. Broccoli

The few James Bond haters are always talking smack about Albert R. Broccoli. Then some slander the vegetable with impunity, led by that anti-veggie George H.W. Bush and his disparaging quote, “Now I’m president of the United States. And I’m not gonna eat any more broccoli!” With proper seasoning, preparation, and additives, broccoli becomes intensely broccolicious! Hate all you want if you feel like you need to, but you know broccoli can be a stinkin’ good side dish.

6. Reality Television

There are two categories of reality TV watchers. First, those who admit that reality television is little more than an addiction, providing no cognitive sustenance but plenty of entertainment. Then, some watch Survivor, The Bachelorette, 90 Day Fiancé, and Married at First Sight, only to turn around and talk smack about reality TV. Few people’s search history will come up negative for garbage TV. Why not own our guilty pleasure?

7. Hawaiian Pizza

If you claim to hate the spicy taste of anchovies on pizza, nobody will accuse you of lying. But what’s with all the over-the-top, out-of-the-way hate for pineapple on pizza? Sure, most people prefer saltier toppings like pepperoni and sausage, but is the hint of sweetness on Hawaiian pizza really that offensive to your palate? It doesn’t have to be your favorite, but let’s stop pretending Hawaiian pizza is some crime to cuisine.

8. Mondays

Like the valedictorian who had to pretend they hated math to avoid being called a Poindexter, those who embrace the Calvinist work ethic don’t hate Mondays. If you don’t pretend to loathe returning to the office after a weekend off, you’re viewed as some freak. And so, you utter the obligatory “Mondays, am I right?” in the break room or Slack channel.

9. Nose-Picking

Everyone would pick their noses in a society where pretense, self-awareness, and etiquette didn’t exist. The decent ones would wash their hands immediately, and civilized humans would still keep their nose candy far away from their mouths. But, in an honest world, everyone would pick their nose without shame, admitting that they love this unhygienic activity that currently draws the scorn and disgust of onlookers.

10. The In-Laws

This requires case-by-case evaluation, but in-laws being presumed hate-able until proven otherwise is entirely un-American. Tons of grooms love golfing with their father-in-law, while countless mothers-in-law are psyched to have a new daughter to brunch with. While most people have no problem admitting their love for their in-laws, the societal cliché of the monster-in-law persists. Let’s give the in-laws the benefit of the doubt. Why don’t we?

11. Fast Food

Many people live in fast food culture as they go to these casual places to meet friends and enjoy a quick casual meal that accompanies their budget. Why else would millions of people go to the drive-ins of McDonald’s, Wendy’s, Chick-fil-A, and Burger King and bring home dinner for their family and friends? They then complain about how much they hate fast food because it’s high in sugar, salt, saturated fat, trans fat, processed food, and caloric overdose, which can be very satisfying.
