Hate on?

Discussion started on

I think it's time to draw the line, time to resist.

When you harbor really bad views of someone or something, you hate them.

You don't "hate on" them. I don't care how many smartphone screens that appears on.

I know, it's a losing battle. Sigh.

Maybe some of us do carry our hate around and throw it on others like the trash it is (the trash they think those others are). If only it lessened the hate for the tossers and didn't increase it in the receivers, it might be worth something, it might become the nothing it should be. Now don't you go hatin' on me.

Well, it’s been 20 years since I first heard the phrase “love on.” I suppose “hate on” was bound to follow.  #logical

It was around the same time that I also first heard “partner with.” I hated it. Part of the general verbing of nouns, I guess. Now it sounds perfectly normal. Language marches on. But “It’s not that big OF a deal” will never not hurt my ears, no matter that it now appears routinely in published books.
Just yesterday I was reading a book in which the phrase appeared correctly, and I was tickled.

I would say that "hate" and "hate on" are two different things. "Hate" is the feeling you have for them, while "hating on" someone is actually saying bad things about or to them.

Right, Brandy! "Hate on" is criticism, which might not even involve actual hate but just a momentary peeve.

“It’s not that big OF a deal”

Marcia, to me this is the normal phrase. Without of it sounds odd to my ear, but not incorrect just unusual. I suspect I hear it with of far more often. Is there a grammatical reason to leave OF out? Too tired to think this through and look for language analogs. Also wondering if any of it is regional.

As one whose first language was not English, my non idiomatic use can always use a beta or two. But when one of my intelligent and articulate kids used "hate on," my inner blackboard met the chalk and the tips of my fingers and toes trembled.

I don't like that one, Gatz. I understand how you feel.

Everyone else^ made good points. Language evolves, and we might be grateful for that. It's a living thing.
