Why is Naruto hated so much when the village had so many Jinchurikis in the past? Didn't they know the risks of having a tailed beast so close by?
Actually, he was mainly hated because Kyubi attacked the village and caused death of the 4th Hokage.
Because he was its vessel, the hate of the villagers for Kyubi has been transfered to Naruto himself.

First off all they didnt hate him rather they was afraid of him, because he had a half off Kyubi seal in to him.
Dont forget one fact that Kyubi was used in two battles which much influence future of the village. He was summoned by Madara during fight with Hasshirama and was released during birth off Naruto by Obito. This was actually one of the most devestating attack on Konoha so far. Many people during this fight died for example Iruka´s parents and The Hokage Minato. This events make people of Konoha only see as symbol of destruction, death.
