The Internet likes Bill Hader. The Internet really likes Bill Hader. Just how much does The Internet like Bill Hader? When you google “Bill Hader sucks” the third result that comes up is an IGN message board, “Bill Hader is a genius.”
Using their incredibly I-didn’t-take-the-time-to-figure-out-how-it-works algorithm, the opinion gathering dataheads over at Amplicate polled the Twitterverse and could only find one guy who hates Bill Hader.
Yep, this guy: @fartsman.
Well fartsman, consider yourself one of a rare and dying breed, the Bill Haters.

Haders Gonna Hade still takes some potshots at Bill now and then, but has expanded her focus to other shows and videos too. The blog links to Bill Hader Needs Clothes, which makes fun of Bill Hader’s frequent use of the same outfits, but insists it is “all in good fun.”
EDIT: We should have made it clearer that Haders Gonna Hade isn’t even actually a hate site. The author loves Bill Hader.
It’s really difficult to find Bill Haters on the internet, which you would not think would be the case. Hader himself brought up the infamous blog post “The Ballad of SNL’s Bill Hader“on a podcast. But in fact the post is most noteworthy for being a rare example of any hatred at all for Hader, who has managed to garner himself quite a lot of goodwill online.
Brave, solitary voices decry Bill Hader, just to see the internet rush to his defense. Take this Bill Hater from the NBC messageboards:
I had to post about this because each week it just gets a little more annoying. Bill Hader is the absolute WORST. Can he go through 1 sketch without staring at the cue cards? He doesn’t even try! Now I know most of the cast use the cue cards but it is no where near as obvious.
Tonight he played Keith Morrison from Dateline and had 1 one word replies…. he couldn’t memorize 1 word?? or glance at ONE word and make eye contact with his co-stars???
This guy has to be a writer or something…. there is a reason he is kept around…
Bill Hader….. YOU SUCK dude…
time to add a new cast member… someone who is deserving.
To which post Mary_Donut submitted the eloquent rebuttal,
In Happy Obama Hussein For USA World, I like Hader.
However, some messageboards are not so quick to support Hader. For instance, Bill Hader once angered Dave Matthews Band fans (a funny group in that they still exist) by doing a Dave Matthews impression.
“No one at SNL seems to realize DMB has worked past 1995″ is in the running for my favorite sentence of the year.
After the Dave Matthews incident, the trail of Bill Haters went cold. However, I know there are more out there, biding their time, waiting, watching, hating.
