Amy Winehouse's dad, Mitch Winehouse, wasn't pleased with Amy from the start.

The late singer's father has blasted the award-winning documentary, even stating last summer that he would create a new movie in response to the Asif Kapadia-directed film. "We're going to invite everyone that's spoken on the other film and we're not going to edit it, like they've edited me, and we're going to tell the truth about Amy's life because this is not," he said during an appearance on British talk show Loose Women.

In Amy, Mitch is portrayed as an opportunistic father who failed to get his daughter help while riding her coattails. He wasn't pleased with his depiction then, and when Kapadia won the Oscar for Best Documentary Feature for his work on Amy Sunday night at the 88th Annual Academy Awards, the "Rehab" songstress' father immediately took to social media to voice his disapproval.

"Always proud of my baby. Amy will not get an oscar though. Just Asif Kapadia. That is what this is all about...Asif. He's fooled everybody," he posted. "I am not changing my stance just because film won Oscar. It's a negative, spiteful and misleading portrayal of Amy. We will fix this."

Twitter users responded to the latter post, defending the documentary and slamming Mitch for criticizing Kapadia's work.

"@mitchwinehouse its not negative of Amy, it's negative of you!!! That's why you're hurting. It shows love for Amy. Look up the meaning!" one follower responded.

"I don't don't think it was a negative portrayal of Amy," another wrote. "It showed how beautiful, intelligent and creative she was."

"@mitchwinehouse note like negative portrayal of you. Fame hungry. No shame," a Twitter user added.

During his acceptance speech, Kapadia talked about what he wanted to accomplish with Amy, which told the story of the young star who died from alcohol poisoning at the age of 27. "This film is about Amy and showing the world who she really was, not the tabloid persona," he said. "We just wanted to make a film to show the world who she really was."
