It occurs in a Hotels.com TV ad that advises you not to hate-like someone
else's vacation, and in the UrbDic:

Hate-Like (/HĀT-LĪK/) - Verb
The act of “liking” someone’s photo on social media even though it fills
you with intense jealousy.
(While looking at a friend’s vacation post) “Ugh, I’m about to hate-like
this pic of Ronny on vacation in Thailand so hard.”
(While posting a vacation pic) “I’m going to get so many hate-likes on this
jungle swing pic.”

When you like something on a social network site (such as Facebook) in a
sarcastic way. Generally something you don't like at all and the other
person has no idea.
CP: "Hanging out with my best friend Heather at the mall"

Ugh, Heather is such a bitch. Definitely going to hate-like that status.

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
