My 4 year old grandson often tells me he doesn’t like me

I love my five grandkids with my heart and soul. My 4.5 year old grandson is very outspoken and often tells me in quite nasty words for a little guy his age—that he doesn’t like me one bit. He has two sisters whom I adore. I know he feels like the girls get perhaps more attention, so I made sure to acknowledge him as soon as I see him, but it’s not enough. He tells me he doesn’t want to come to my house and throws temper tantrums when my daughter wants me to watch him. I feel hurt and I also feel terrible for him. I don’t know how to act, what to say to him in addition to constantly telling him  that I love him despite what comes out of his mouth. What am I doing wrong? How can I fix this? Why is he acting and feeling this way? I’ve done nothing but to love him.
