Grammar question Please.?

"However, the moans cliché-hate have produced have become ridiculous."

Should the sentence above have the word "have" or "has?" I first put in "has" because the subject is cliche-hate, which is singular. My English teacher, however, directly stated and circled the "has" and changed it to "have," stating that the word refers to the moans.

Microsoft word and my own learning agree with me, but my English teacher did not. Which should I use?
