Michael Douglas questioned the U.S. prison system backstage at the Emmys on Sunday, elaborating on a shout-out to his incarcerated son Cameron during the actor’s earlier acceptance speech.

Speaking with reporters, Douglas lamented that he’s been unable to visit Cameron, who’s currently in solitary confinement even though he was convicted for non-violent drug offenses.

“Obviously at first, I was certainly disappointed with my son,” said the star. “But I’ve reached a point now where I’m very, very disappointed with the system.”

He had more to say.
