Looking on the internet, there are endless memes expressing hate towards Skylar (Breaking Bad) and Lori (Walking Dead). It often is the female characters that attract the most hate. Why is that?

I think female characters attract the most criticism because they are the characters that people want to get right most of all. People want female characters to be strong physically, mentally, and emotionally, but at the same time, not bitchy or whiny. If any of these features ever creep up, audiences are all too quick to shout 'sexism' or 'stereotypical'.
Maybe because they are the moral compasses so often - the 'fun police'. Skylar has her work cut out for her trying to keep her life on track, and she comes across (unfairly) as the cranky pants.
I never found this to be the case. I certainly have found that there are not enough lead female roles, which I think is sad, but I typically dislike a character because they have a trait that I dislike, not because of their gender. If you look up Walking Dead memes, I think you will find just as many Spaghetti Tuesday and dissing Dale memes as you will Lori memes, I could be wrong.
