I don't think anyone hates on him from a playing perspective as much as some fans recognize he was a WR with many flaws who did not handle his departure with class (some will argue I'm sure) playing all out and giving 100%.

Personally, I'm glad he is gone and hope that it tempers Ben's always hopefu desire to sling the ball deep for a low probability of success while passing up sure gains short.
