I'm looking for other expressions or saying to describe when someone is ill-disposed towards someone else, but mainly on a prejudice rather than for objective reasons.

  • Prejudiced against is perfectly fine.

You can take against someone, be biased/have a bias against them, have/harbour {an antipathy/ill feelings} towards them, or have/harbour/nurse a grudge against them.


There are plenty of synonyms for "prejudiced" on Thesaurus.com, including:

bigoted, discriminatory, dogmatic, intolerant, intransigent, one-sided, opinionated, racist, sexist, xenophobic, blind, inclined, influenced, leaning, narrow, preconceived, predisposed, prepossessed, presupposing, closed-minded, doctrinaire, extreme, hidebound, illiberal, narrow-minded

Depending on the context, any of these should be suitable for your needs.
