Debunking of TheAngryGrandpaShow
There appears to be a new series from Jesse accusing Michael and Angry Grandpa of copying his series and implying that it is fake. In November 7, 2016, Jesse uploaded a video called PICKLEBOY CALLS ME OUT!, Michael calls Jesse while Jesse is making a road trip to see Grandpa in Summerville. Michael was shown to be upset over the fact that Jesse called Grandpa fake. He felt like he should've been called instead of having it be viewed to the public. When Jesse asked Michael if it's fake, Michael asked why he is doing this. He tried to persuade Michael to answer since he revealed The Psycho Series, but Michael refused to answer and wanted the video title to be changed. Michael was also outraged that he lost subscribers and that he feels like his life is in jeopardy over the video. Jesse even has gone as far as showing up at Michael's new home to try to find evidence that the series is fake. In Michael's vlogs, Jesse even asked to sleep over at his house for a while unaware that it was a ruse to go through Michael's belongings to find out if AGP was fake. Michael caught him multiple times and kicked him out of the house for it, but Jesse asked if he could just meet Grandpa for 5 minutes to ask a couple of questions to which Michael reluctantly agreed to.
The next day, in the vlog ANGRY GRANDPA KICKS ME OUT!, Jesse is in shock to find Grandpa in a wheelchair to which Michael did not want filmed because he doesn't want people to think Grandpa is frail and weak. Jesse asked why he was in a wheelchair and Grandpa replies that he recently got hurt and showed his leg which was swollen and purple, which Jesse questioned if that was make up. Enraged, Grandpa told Parker to show the camera on his leg and asked the fans how could someone fake a swollen leg. Jesse also asked why the police don't show up when they threaten to call them in the videos, to which Michael screams that family is all they have and that they love each other. At this point Grandpa was even more enraged and threw a chair at Jesse and wanted to kick them out, which Michael did himself. Enraged, Michael felt betrayed and told the two to go back to New Jersey. At some point, Jesse returned again the same night, but there is no footage of him in the house, but in his car again with soup all over him, feeling embarrassed.
In the vlog ANGRY GRANDPA DESTROYS DRONE!, Jesse felt as though it was all pre planned from the interview he had. He decided to send a drone over Grandpa's house, seeing nobody on the porch, however, he saw one of his dogs running in the backyard, thinking it was a german shepherd. He even went as far as sneaking up the porch and even breaking into Grandpa's house to see if he was fake. While hiding in the living room, he sees Grandpa opening a box full of candy while he was still in his wheelchair. At this point, Jesse launched his drone in the living room, scaring Grandpa to where he jumps out of the wheelchair and smashes the drone with one of his swords. Jesse screams and tells Grandpa to calm down, but Grandpa grabs his sword and tells them to leave. The two flee the property with Grandpa behind them, throwing the sword at them as they run. Jesse and Parker begin to question some more because Michael said Grandpa couldn't walk, but he was able to get up just fine and even chase them. Jesse says he was heading back to Michael's house for answers as the vlog ended. Some fans are speculating that this will also lead to a Psycho Dad vs. Angry Grandpa fight over these videos. This is a new installment of McJuggerNuggets and there will be more information posted as the channel produces more of these videos.
