He’s just projecting
He who has a penchant for criticizing others is driven by a spirit which is clearly not holy. Likely, bitterness, pain, and a gnawing sense of ugliness, that fill the heart is being hurled outward. At best, take his word with a grain of salt. 

Matthew 7:3-5  Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye?  Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,' when there is the log in your own eye?  You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.
