Man, People REALLY Hate Grandpa Joe from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory


OK I fully admit it.  I can’t stand Grandpa Joe either.  The minute he started yapping “I’ve got a Golden Ticket” which miraculously sprang him out of a bed that he literally did not get out of for years on end, I realized that Grandpa Poe was one selfish SOB and couldn’t care less about Charlie.  He only cared about getting his old hands on Willa Wonka’s chocolate.   And it’s not that I felt alone here.  It’s just I didn’t realize that there were legions of Willy Wonka fans out that who can’t stand him either.


Back in 2004 lucky old Grandpa Joe became the target of internet rage when his villainous nature was exposed.  The blog Say No To Grandpa Joe started it all, and was created “To reveal once and for all the truth about the only real villain in the movie”- Grandpa Joe. They cite his attitude towards women, his tobacco money stash and the fact that he stayed in bed and let someone else do all the work, until the chance to have fun arrived, as reasons to hate old man Joe.

In 2010 a Facebook community called The I Hate Grandpa Joe From Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory was created to keep the hate alive, and a few months ago they posted this vile mashup pic, proving Grandpa Joe is the villain after all:
