Haters gonna hate. It’s a colloquial saying that so describes our current culture that the princess of pop, Taylor Swift, made a chart-topping song about it a half decade ago. She thematically sequeled it with the lyric ‘control your urges to scream about all the people you hate’ in her new pride-filled anthem You need to calm down!
