Honest People Share What They Equal Parts Hate And Respect

[rebelmouse-image 18351151 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

It's easy to hate something but at the same time respect it so much. Whatever it might be, it is so good it's actually bad. These people share things they hate to love.

u/The_Chuckie asks:

Who do you hate but also respect at the same time?

For the gamers out there

[rebelmouse-image 18351152 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Good snipers in video games

Save the bees!

[rebelmouse-image 18351153 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

A large bees nest attached to the overhang just above the main entrance to our house.

Mad respect

[rebelmouse-image 18351154 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Criss Angel.

He is arrogant with a bad reputation amongst the magic community and the Las Vegas community, but what he accomplished is very difficult. Having several seasons of constant new magic tricks over and over as well as having your own Vegas show is EXTREMELY difficult and there are few performers out there who can come close to match the amount of output he has.

Also, he apparently treats his crew members VERY well which is not true of Vegas magicians in general.

So true

The National Lottery. It's regressive taxation, but it's also a way of getting people to pay tax willingly.

For the baseball lovers

[rebelmouse-image 18351155 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

The New York Yankees. While I don't HATE them, I'd be lying if I said they didn't have a long, interesting history with great players and are part of one of the few major rivalries in MLB.

Thank you kids glued to tablets on Youtube...

[rebelmouse-image 18351156 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Toy Review channels on youtube. It is some of the weirdest stuff and its the lowest quality of videos on the platform but they all make bank.

The learning process

[rebelmouse-image 18351157 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Young nurses. Respect because I know all about the struggle and hard work being put in.

Hate because every single young nurse I've ever met has told me and everyone around me about the struggle and hard work being put in.

I don't know if it's just me, but lately I've been bracing myself around nurses outside a clinic ages 20-25.

Shout out to vet techs , though, for being undervalued animal nurses. Love you to death.

When people have two sides

[rebelmouse-image 18345586 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Many professional wrestlers. Most notably Samoa Joe---the character is one of my most hated characters ever.

But last year there was this boy who reached out to the wrestling community on Twitter about a bully---Joe's advice to try to make friends by inviting him to watch wrestling together made it so I can't hate the man.

When someone breaks your heart

[rebelmouse-image 18345181 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Sidney Crosby. I collected pop cans as a kid for months to get enough money to see him play in a prospects game shortly after the world juniors. The day before the game he announced he wasn't going anymore due to being tired. Do you realize how many pop cans you have to collect to get $300 bucks. One of the greatest players all time. But I will always hate him for that, I was a huge fan before that.

When they are so successful, but so brainwashed

[rebelmouse-image 18351158 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Tom Cruise. He's devoted to something that is basically a cult, and at this point he can't be ignorant of the reputation of Scientology anymore. Still, from all accounts he's a dedicated craftsman when it comes to acting and a consummate professional and all-around nice guy on set.

The respect is major

[rebelmouse-image 18351159 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Ron Burgandy. From deep down in my stomach, with every inch of me, I pure, straight hate him. But goddammit, do I respect him!

Sensitive material to Star Wars fans

[rebelmouse-image 18351160 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

George Lucas

I wouldn't say I hate him, but I'm not the biggest fan of what he did to Star Wars in terms of the special editions, prequels, etc. But I respect him for what he's created.

Getting political, but not personal

[rebelmouse-image 18351161 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

John McCain.

I'm not sure I'd say I hate him but I definitely dislike the stance that he's taken on a lot of issues. At the same time I do respect him since from what I've seen he genuinely holds his views and tries to do his job in a fair and moral manner.

Werk ladies

[rebelmouse-image 18351162 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Kim Kardashian, and the rest of the Kardashian-Jenner family for that matter. While I hate the fetishization of them by the media and the attention they get, they're incredible business people for turning a sex-tape and mild celebrity credit into a multi-million dollar fashion/clothing/social media empire.

Compatibility is important

[rebelmouse-image 18351164 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I guess I've missed my window to drop a top level comment and have it catch up but anyway: Apple.

They're THE trendsetters in the industry. Especially talking mobile phones. I live in India and currently India has been BOMBARDED left and right with Chinese brands like Oppo, Vivo (both from BBK, which also does OnePlus) and Xiaomi and they are poorly done 1-to-1 Apple imitations at worst (and awesome value phones at best (sent from my Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro)) so it's apparent how important it is for a feature to be implemented by Apple to make it mainstream (like dual cameras). Even the most apparent not-copying-Apple brand in the industry right now, Samsung, has been in hot water for doing the exact same thing they've now stopped doing just a few years ago.

What I don't like about them is simply how closed their phones are for lots of things. I've got a Windows laptop and my friend has an Android phone. Well, there goes my connectivity with my own as well as someone else's phone if needed. Android is a lot more flexible here and that's what I like about it. Plus I've got less money to throw around.

So yeah, I can hate apple all I want and be literally repulsed by all their devices and everything, but I can't deny their consistent impact on the industry and how it drives it forward

Confidence is key

[rebelmouse-image 18351165 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Miley Cyrus. Hate her show('s), music, attitude, personality, fans and pretty much everything about her but damn she inspires so many people, especially young women to be free, happy and confident. The fact that she is so confident and positive about who she is makes me respect her.

When they talk too much

[rebelmouse-image 18351166 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I normally dislike people who are very showboat-y and talk too much imo.

So that leaves Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Respect him because he's very good as a boxer.

When they have good beats, but a beat up filter

[rebelmouse-image 18351167 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Kanye west. Stupid Looney who is a genius when it comes to music beats

Is it boldness or inconsiderate?

[rebelmouse-image 18351168 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Obnoxious personalities.

I can respect their boldness and how they don't seem to care what other people think.
