Fans and followers of true crime weren’t exactly thrilled to hear that Casey Anthony, famous for being on trial for the murder of her daughter, Caylee Anthony, was thinking about having more kids one day. After all, despite the fact that she was ultimately acquitted of the crime, public perception seems to be that she was, well, not a very good mother. When People broke the news earlier this month that she was thinking about becoming a mother again, reactions were not exactly positive. But now, Casey’s father is joining those speaking up.

During a recent appearance on Dr. Oz, George Anthony was asked what he thought about his daughter having more children. Though he didn’t outwardly condemn her, he did take the opportunity to throw a little shade. “When I held Caylee the very first time, I was so excited,” he said. “I was off-the-charts excited. I was three feet off the ground for days, weeks, even some years.” As for how he’d feel about becoming a grandpa again now, well… “Knowing now that she could potentially be a mom again, I hope she does better this time around than what she did last time.”

The now 32-year-old’s parents have long since distanced themselves from their controversial daughter. George has insisted for years that “Casey knows what happened to Caylee,” and that he doesn’t want to believe his daughter killed his granddaughter, but he won’t outright deny it. Casey’s mom, Cindy Anthony, won’t go so far as to believe that it was a murder, but she does believe that her daughter could’ve been accidentally responsible for the toddler’s death. And though she seems to still love Casey, George says his relationship with her is over. “I don’t want to see her, I don’t want to talk to her. I’ve always said that I would never talk to my daughter. I actually lost my daughter and my granddaughter in 2008,” he told Crime Watch Daily.
