haterism

noun; back formation
the practice of hating or strongly disliking a thing, person, or action; the practice of a hater; the practice of viewing a thing, person, or action as inferior to oneself The use of the English words hater and hating became increasingly popular, describing someone who put an action, person, thing or idea in low regards. In this sense, the word hater experienced a semantic shift from ‘a person who detests” to ‘a person who feels inferior.’ Therefore, the term haterism was coined to identify the ‘practice of being a hater’ or ‘being a hater.”
 
Her haterism was obvious. She was so evil to my friends.
Etymology : Back formation of the English word hater. Hater (English word meaning 'to feel hostility or animosity towards') + -ism (Greek suffix denoting a noun, which means belief or practice).
