There are two reasons for Cyrano's hatred of Montfleury.
The reason Cyrano states is that he hates Montfleury because he is a terrible actor. He chases him off the stage after ridiculing him for being fat and banishes him from the stage for a month.
The true reason that Cyrano hates him is one he keeps from others. The reason is that Cyrano is in love with Roxanne. Montfleury made a pass at her and this infuriates Cyrano. Cyrano is insanely jealous and want s to keep him away from Roxanne.
