Amy’s father has taken aim at the channel, and singled out one of his daughter’s pals, Alex Foden, who - according to Mitch - has assisted the making of the show.
He even went as far as saying: “Blake was a saint compared to him”.
Mitch, who was also vocal with his disappointment in Asif Kapadia's ‘Amy’ documentary, voiced his concerns on Twitter, pleading: “Leave my daughter alone.”
He posted a string of tweets, which read:
there is a programme Monday 28th channel 5. Last hours of Amy. What an absolute disgrace. Leave my daughter alone.— mitch winehouse (@mitchwinehouse) September 21, 2015
I've just been told it's Alex Fodden doing the doc. I hope he explains his role. Blake is a saint compared to Foden. Amy hated him.— mitch winehouse (@mitchwinehouse) September 21, 2015
So while Foden exploits Amy in the worst way, Amy is continuing to help disadvantaged kids through the AWF. Why no documentary about that?— mitch winehouse (@mitchwinehouse) September 21, 2015ADVERTISEMENT
Don't worry about me. This makes me more determined to right this exploitative rubbish. the truth will be told by those who were there.— mitch winehouse (@mitchwinehouse) September 21, 2015
Tweet @MrAlexFoden to register your disgust. Amy never saw him for at least 3 years. Will he give back money Amy gave him for rehab?— mitch winehouse (@mitchwinehouse) September 21, 2015
Earlier this year, Channel 5’s Robin Williams episode was labelled “distasteful” and fans on both sides of the pond questioned whether some controversial scenes were necessary.
The show’s format typically includes talking heads and medical industry experts, who examine public documents, and attempt explain the nature of the celebrity’s death.
As the discussions develop, an actor plays the role of the star, and acts out various scenes.
Other previous ‘Autopsy’ specials have investigated the circumstances surrounding the deaths of Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston and Anna Nicole Smith.
