* CreatorsApathy: This is the vibe many will get from the show, considering the showrunners have dedicated numerous episodes to bashing their critics for TTG's [[ShallowParody short comings]] rather than spend that time trying to improve the show for them; not helping matters [[AdoredByTheNetwork is the show's over-exposure on Cartoon Network]].

** For a time, CN would use the show as the face of its anti-bullying campaign, because they're both superheroes as well as AdoredByTheNetwork. This is despite the fact that the Titans are downright misanthropic and mean spirited in their show, often using "justice" as an excuse to use excessive force or get what they want without care for the consequences. Surprisngly, the network actually pulled the Titans from the campaign, likely because the network did indeed see that the Titans themselves were bullies. And then brought them back for a short time in 2017.

* CriticProof: Regardless of whatever the size of the {{Hatedom}} may be, the show consistently pulls in high ratings. The main difference between the two groups is that the hatedom is made up almost entirely of the PeripheryDemographic, while most of the fanbase is made up of the intended target audience of kids 8 to 14. As a result of this, it is much easier to see the show be treated with scorn online, including on this very site.
* CrossesTheLineTwice: The second half of "Ghost Boy". Beast Boy takes his pranking too far. [[spoiler:It eventually causes everybody to die, including Beast Boy himself.]]

** Though one could consider them [[JerkassWoobie Jerkass Woobies]], The Titans themselves in countless episodes are only called "heroes" because they fight the "real" villains, and are otherwise devoid of any heroic intentions. Instances such as "Breakfast Cheese" and "Caged Tiger" depict them as {{Sociopathic Hero}}es who beat up villains for the fun of it, and use stopping crime as just an excuse for their acts of violence. "TTG v PPG" outright confirms this, establishing the Titans as "superheroes who do not care about stopping villains." Justified as the show usually exploits this for BlackComedy. This is even lampshaded in the episode "Serious Business" when Robin says that the Titans spend 3% of their time actually fighting crime. This is especially prominent with the male Titans, who are even more selfish, childish, and jerkish than the girls.

** In "Starfire the Terrible", Starfire when she turns into a villain. ''Somewhat''.

** In "Starfire the Terrible", Starfire when she turns into a villain. ''Somewhat''.Well, she tries to, at least.



** The hatred has increased tenfold with ads calling the series "your new favorite show" and the Thursday night block being renamed [[AdoredByTheNetwork "New Titans Thursdays"]] (though fortunately, it was changed back to just "New Thursdays" after a couple weeks).

** Basically, if you're a fan of the series, you're guaranteed to become an internet pariah unless you run into equally-tasteless people.



*** It goes even further, as many fans blame the series for getting ''Regular Show'' cancelled by depriving it of reruns to keep ratings up, and with ''Adventure Time'' set to end in 2018, many fear ''Steven Universe'' or any show that is either not named ''Teen Titans GO!'', or is deemed too inappropriate for kids by the network's increasingly-conservative censors will also be axed. The latest victim of the network's favoritism is ''WesternAnimation/{{Clarence}}''.

** How Cartoon Network kept claiming about how it's [[AdoredByTheNetwork "your new favorite show!"]], has since lost a lot of weight, since as of lately, ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' and ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' have been surpassing ''Teen Titans Go!'' in ratings.

CN actually stopped using the tagline a few months after it was introduced, after alot of backlash over the network's BlatantLies.



* HypeBacklash: If you don't hear people hating it for its content, or because it's a poor cash-in on the original ''Teen Titans'' show, then it's most likely this. The show isn't necessarily completely terrible on its own, just not really that good. However, because CN keeps airing it for hours upon hours every day of the week, making sure you're going to catch it if you flip the channel to it at any moment. This has had the side effect of influencing TheFireflyEffect on to some of the older and newer shows, since they don't get the proper amount of love they should, despite being better-received than ''Go!'' has in its lifespan. It has also been compared to ''[=SpongeBob=]'' when Nickelodeon really started overexposing that series, leading to many of their other shows to not get the viewership they deserve because people who hate the show due to its overexposure alone aren't tuning in.

** As the comments section of [[http://knowyourmeme.com/photos/1115636-the-powerpuff-girls this page]] shows, the news that the show would be doing a crossover episode with the already controversial ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls2016'' reboot in July was '''not''' warmly received by fans. At the very least, the Hatedom hoped the Powerpuff Girls would knock some sense into the Titans, or at least give them the brutal beatdown they so rightfully deserve. Following the airing, complaints died down, with the special being pretty well received. In that the Powerpuff Girls and Mojo Jojo were written more like their original incarnations than the reboot versions, as it focused more on their respective heroic and villainous traits.

* PeripheryDemographic: Surprisingly, most viewers of Teen Titans Go! are toddlers. This could be due to the attractive artstyle of the show and the fact that it's one of the few things Cartoon Network airs during the time when toddlers watch TV. It constantly gets higher ratings than shows actually aimed at preschoolers and has been the top show of the month in ratings with that demographic several times. This has lead to Cartoon Network holding a few mini Teen Titans Go! marathons on weekdays specifically for this demographic.
