The father of the woman who fell to her death from Gable Tostee's Gold Coast apartment in 2014 says Mr Tostee is "an arrogant son-of-a-bitch" and should be charged.

Levin man Warren Wright hasn't spoken publicly about his daughter Warriena's death until now, telling the Sydney Morning Herald he believes Mr Tostee was charged with the wrong offences.

"Charge him with the right thing - false imprisonment resulting in death. I don't know what the charge is in Australia, but that is what he is guilty of. That and being an arrogant son-of-a-bitch, but I guess there's no crime against that."

He says a lawyer has contacted him offering to review the case, but he is trying to move on.

"The bottom line is nothing brings her back."

Mr Tostee has made headlines for since his acquittal over Ms Wright's death. The latest was just last week when he posted an offensive comment to Facebook on International Women's Day.

The post quickly sparked outrage for its reference to "hoes" - a slang word for prostitutes and an offensive term for women in general.
