KidBehindACamera (real name – Michael Green), commonly referred to as “Pickleboy,” is an American YouTuber best known for the hit web series ”TheAngryGrandpaShow.”
He was born on June 2, 1987, in the USA, as Michael Brian Green.

His father is Charles Marvin Green Jr., better known as Angry Grandpa, one of the stars of ”The Angry Grandpa Show.” He made his online debut on Christmas Day 2007.
In 2015, Michael bought his father a new house. ”My son bought me a house. I have no words for how much I love him,” Charles said. ”I love you son.” Michael said: ”Every kid wants to buy their father a house.”
Angry Grandpa passed away on December 10, 2017, due to cirrhosis of the liver. He was 67. ”He died with a scowl on his face,” KidBehindACamera said in an interview. ”But his last words were ‘I love you.’”
After the death of his dad, Kid became depressed and put on about 50 pounds (22 kilograms) of weight. ”When we lost Grandpa in 2017 I didn’t know how much longer this ride would last but somehow we’re still here 3 years later and that doesn’t happen without you [his fans],” Green tweeted in November 2020.

Type 2 Diabetes
On September 19, 2018, he was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.
”Today I was diagnosed with diabetes and I know the trolls are like laughing … hey, this is your moment,” he said in a video at the time. Michael added: ”Okay. I was diagnosed with diabetes and I should have seen it coming … you guys have been calling that you said it was gonna happen if I didn’t start taking care of myself and look … and that exactly what happened. You guys were right.”
Green weighed 412 lbs at the time of the diagnostic.
”We have a problem on YouTube and there is no way you don’t know it … there’s a major problem on YouTube where you have to clickbait and if you don’t clickbait, viewership is gonna drop, interaction drops, and everything. I don’t want to have to clickbait.”
On December 25, 2018, Green released an album titled – “Ashes.” It was created as a tribute to his dad. ”This album is a labor of love for my father who I miss every day,” Pickleboy said. ”I love you dad and I’ll never forget you.”
