Harry Potter Challenge Day 9

Day 9 is your least favorite male character.

I have two.
I'll start with the less offensive. I don't like Hagrid. For some reason I find him incredibly annoying. Part of this could be the fact that I don't like how he is voiced in the audio books, but part of it is that he's just plain stupid.
That may have been harsher than I meant it to be. Hagrid is so simple, but to a point where it drives me crazy. He loves monsters, and he has an irritating soft spot for the dangerous creatures, no matter what trouble they may bring him. But I think the thing that really bothers me about Hagrid is the fact that Harry, Ron and Hermione love him and I just don't see it.

The second person I hate is Snape.
Yup. I may be one of the only people who has read Harry Potter who hates Snape, but I'm coming out and saying it. I don't like the guy one bit.
I hate the way he treated Harry. I hate the fact that he loved Lily. I hate the fact that he's a deatheater. Then he's not. Then he is again, but he's a spy. But most of all, I hate the fact that he killed Dumbledore.
There is nothing, nothing that could be said in the books (or by other people, for that matter) that can convince me that what he did was OK. Nothing. He stood there and killed one of my favorite characters, and then he ran away. I just can't forgive him for that.
And, while we're at it, I hate that he loved Lily. Always. I hate that lingering word that floats around Etsy like it's the best line of the books.
I've hated Snape from the beginning, and I always will.

So, are you ready to stone me for hating one of the (now that the series is over) most well-loved characters?
