How should humanist respond to a threatening, human-abusing God
If there exists a God who survives on human abuse (be it human rights abuse, trafficking etc) or human sacrifice. The God also threatens to bring about apocalypse if his/her demands are not met. What should be the attitude of a humanist in this case? Is there any existing hypothesis for this question?

As has been mentioned, we have no convincing evidence there's any god of any kind so we should look for ways to help people who are abused or threatened and try to make the world better.
Now I'll entertain the question for which you wanted an answer: Suppose actual evidence became available a god did exist [and it would have to be extraordinary evidence given the extraordinary claim; evidence far, far stronger than any given for the existence of any of humanity's many gods]. But if such evidence did present itself and the god in question were a nasty one then people would have to decide individually how to respond to such a stupendous tragedy. My guess is that humanists by and large would resist. We don't have the background of believing in such a god that some people do and most of us would hate the idea, unlike some believers who have created perverted gods in their own perverted images and others who have adopted perverted moralities in fear of judgement by the perverted gods they've been raised to believe in.
So I'll hazard the guess a lot of humanists would tell that god what it could do with its super powers. Probably several of the more moral believers in other gods would also. But if such a god did exist you'd think we'd know about it by now. I hope you can stop worrying about this highly unlikely event. If you have been encouraged to believe in such a god by some church, Get Out of That Church!
