He obviously doesn't hate you, just the photographer.

Two things that might make the difference in communication with another extraterrestrial race: Ability and Desire.

Humans do our best to communicate with other species on our own planet, but many of them lack either the ability to effectively communicate, or the desire to do so. In rare cases (such as Koko the gorilla) both of those exist, and our communication is extremely successful.

Assuming that first contact with an alien race doesn't end with the typical Hollywood example of a severe accident and war, I think both humans and aliens would be excited enough to work hard at communication.

That was such a great show. Too bad it ended so suddenly at the end of Season 4!
