Why do people hate Sheldon?

Well, it was never expressed what his condition is....so for arguments sake he is OCD, obnoxious, insulting, and condescending to anyone he comes in contact with. It amazed how he kept any friends at all as he considered them his minions to take care of his every whim and chauffeur him wherever he needed to go. But I guess his friends enabled him just like his family did and so to him he expects this kind of attention.  And to think it took 12 years in the finale episode for someone  (Amy) to read him the riot act that his friends only tolerated him because he "never means to" insult them. Maybe if they had not let him get his way so much he might have realized it a little sooner.

Autism: a developmental disorder of variable severity that is characterized by difficulty in social interaction and communication and by restricted or repetitive patterns of thought and behavior. Mary Cooper should have gone to that specialist. Early intervention helps. I think his friends understand, and tolerate his behaviors. Sheldon's intellect must be difficult to harness. It is expected he may champ at the bit. Yet he is still a big 'P' in the 'A'.

They tolerate him, but consider him weird!

But hasn’t he been “read the riot act” before? I have no doubt that after 12.24 Sheldon went back to the “same old, same old” setting of demeaning, belittling and intellectually demeaning those closest to him.

Since I have no data to refute that I must agree with you!

I'm in total agreement with you and Mario D.

Perhaps Sheldon, and Mrs Hofstadter get along so well, because they are both autism spectrum. Perhaps that is why Lenard gets along with Sheldon, as well as he does. Leonard may tolerate Sheldon, because he is also, symbolically-allegorically ,  trying to psychologically repair his relationship with his mother.

Maybe and maybe Leonard feels sorry for egotistical, condescending scientist.

True, but we can agree that Sheldon is honest to a fault. So, he is egotistical, and condescending, but that level of genius must be a curse and blessing. Maybe Sheldon is honest when he reminds others that he really does not understand what the problem is with everyone else. He is not capable to see any other way.

I really don't think so--for Sheldon to publicly announce-- at his Nobel acceptance speech that he loved his friends--tells me he was a changed man And, whenever Amy told Sheldon something she didn't like, he always seemed to listen 

And, the reason he was read the riot act over and over again was because the show lasted 12 seasons and that was one of the character's personality traits--one of the writers' go to's
