Love and hatred are often described as polar feelings, therefore one cannot exist without the other. Just like magnet poles. Jesus is known as a person who could love all the people. Does it emphasize his uniqueness (he couldn't hate anyone or anything) or maybe there is a chance that hatred was familiar to him.

It is impossible to love without hating. They are opposites in a sense--in the same sense that every coin has two sides, and without one side the other cannot exist.
- If you love your child, you have anything which harms your child: illness, a kidnapper, a vengeful ex-boyfriend
- If you love cleanliness, you hate dirtiness
- If you love quiet, you hate noise
- If you love every person in the world, you hate anything which might harm them: Sin, the devil, foolish choices
So yes, absolutely, Jesus (and God the Father) is capable of hate. It's impossible to have love without also having hate.
The strongest direct Biblical support for God hating is not in the context of Jesus, but there is some for that as well.
Luke 14:26, Jesus instructing us to hate:
“If anyone comes to me and does not hate father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters—yes, even their own life—such a person cannot be my disciple.
Just as it is written: “Jacob I loved, but Esau I hated.”
The Lord saw this and rejected them
because he was angered by his sons and daughters.
Could Jesus Christ hate something or someone?
Yes. Since Jesus is God, he would hate the same things God hates.
John 10:30 I and my Father are one.
Proverbs 6:16-19 These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.
