Oh, look, it's a trope.
I hate tropes
, with just about any noun or adjective in place of X.
One of the most common variants of this is, "You Got Guts
, kid. (beat)
I hate guts," or something to that effect. Another is, "You remind me of my (relative). I hate my (relative)".
NOTE: It's this trope only if a character points out X, then after a short pause
, he says, "I hate X." If one character points out X and another person
says he hates it, it is not this trope.
Commonly used by the resident Deadpan Snarker

Vegeta: You cut through my armor! This was a gift from my father!
Yajirobe: Oh I'm sorry; I'm sure your father was a great man.
Vegeta: I hated my father!
Yajirobe: Oh, well then I'm sure your father was a total prick.
Vegeta: HOW DARE YOU TALK ABOUT MY FATHER LIKE THAT?!?
