Not that this is completely unjustified: while obviously not sentient, the Sun '''is''' incredibly nocive to the people that stay too much under its lights. Aside from the visible spectrum, it emits a vast array of electromagnetic radiation that can be exceedingly dangerous, most notably the ultraviolets, which can cause various skin cancers (including the deadly melanoma), cataract and sunburns, among others. Earth is only liveable because its own magnetic field shields us from most of this. It's only logical to see/portray it as an evil entity in some works.
