The Votes Are In: This Is Everything People Hated Most in 2017
From the most unforgettable moments of the year to the most hated pop culture trends we hope are dead and gone forever, 2017 was quite the doozy. As we put the year in our rear view mirror, there’s no denying that 2017 gave us plenty of reasons to run toward 2018 at full speed ahead. But not before we take one last look at all the things we hated most, of course!
According to the hundreds of thousands of people who use Hater, a dating app that matches users based on what they hate, there’s a laundry list of top contenders for the “most hated of 2017” award. So, without further ado, let’s get to it.
1. Most hated food: Hawaiian pizza
Second place: Spray cheese
Third place: Burritos that fall apart
We’re not quite sure what the classic ham and pineapple combo ever did to deserve this ranking, but apparently, it wasn’t good. People were far from pleased with Hawaiian pizza in 2017. And while we may be slightly confused by this, there’s no question as to how the other two foods made the list.
Spray cheese? Ew. That stuff should have been banned back in the 80s. And burritos that fall apart are pretty much the worst thing you could ask for, everyone knows that.
2. Most loved food: Chicken nuggets
Second place: Nachos
Third place: Garlic bread
It’s official: Chicken nuggets have made their comeback. Often considered the much-less-loved alternative to a fast food burger, nuggets have hit their stride. And it kind of makes sense, given the fact that plenty of places are adamant about advertising their white-meat-only nugs.
Not surprisingly, nachos and garlic bread also made the most loved list — for very obvious reasons.
3. Most hated clothes: Male rompers
Second place: Cargo shorts
Third place: Crocs
Yes, male rompers are a thing. But we’re really hoping that this one, in particular, is a fad that never, ever comes back. Because, wow. Not far behind the dreaded man romper are cargo shorts (hey, the 90s called …) and Crocs (yikes).
4. Most loved clothes: Sweatpants
Second place: Suits
Third place: Joggers
Sweatpants were the most loved clothing item of the year? Well, duh! If there were ever a year to want to stay holed up at home and schlep around in sweats, it was 2017. Oddly enough, suits weren’t far behind. And then, it was back to some more comfy clothes with joggers. Go figure.
5. Most hated person: Donald Trump
Second place: The Kardashians
Third place: Harvey Weinstein
You know it’s bad when the Kardashians are more hated than the worst guy in Hollywood. But the people have spoken, and it would appear that the reality TV family is just too annoying to put up with. As for Donald Trump, the fact that he managed to nab the No. 1 spot needs no explaining whatsoever.
6. Most loved person: My mom
Second place: Tom Hanks
Third place: Michelle Obama
This one proves that not all faith in humanity is lost. The most loved person of the year — and quite possibly all time — was indeed mom. How about that for a breath of fresh air?
7. Most hated phrase: Build the wall
Second place: K
Third place: F***boy
Not surprisingly, Trump, or at least a favorite quote of his, makes the list once more. His infamous, well-documented, and of course, super-hated proclamation to “built the wall” is one statement we all wish we could soon forget.
The fact is, he’s one hell of a f***boy, am I right? K, bye.
8. Most loved phrase: I love you
Second place: Bae
Third place: Lit
Well now, isn’t this sweet. We’re happy that folks voted “I love you” as their most favorite phrase of the year. Mr. President, we hope you’re taking notes, here.
9. Most hated band: Nickelback
Second place: DJ Khaled
Third place: Kid Rock
Nickelback — need we say more? Didn’t think so.
10. Most loved band: Kendrick Lamar
Second place: The Weekend
Third place: Beyoncé
Once again restoring our faith in humanity, the people have spoken, and they’ve voted Beyoncé onto the list. (Oh yeah, and Kendrick Lamar and The Weekend also made the list.) She may be No. 3 on this ranking, but Queen B will always be No. 1 in our hearts.
