    That would depend on why they're hating and whether they think themselves as hateful. Sometimes people can be hateful because they feel hated, hurt neglected. Sometimes what is perceived as hateful behavior is not hate at all, but fear, or insecurity etc.
    Is there a particular person you are thinking of when you ask? What is their backstory? Are they being hateful toward you or someone else?

      It seems quite true that some folks appear hateful when faced with fear and especially fear due to ignorance. Contempt prior to investigation.

    There really isn't anything you can do about a hater.  Why are they hating?  Do they have a point?  Can you try to see their side of it?  Or are they just immature?  You can either talk things out with them and try to make peace, or you can ignore them.

    There is a bad tendency on the left to label debate or disagreement as "hate". It is an easy way to de-legitimize their opinions as irrational or without reasonable basis while slandering them at the same time, but it isn't right.
