The touching tribute to Robin Williams during this week's Emmy Awards is being criticized by some online for including a racist joke about Muslim women.
The offending joke comes at 3:32 in the above video.
Williams borrows a pink scarf from a woman in the audience and wraps its round his head.
"I would like to welcome you to Iran. Help me!" he jokes.

The criticism on Twitter was immediate with many referring to the joke as "racist".

I'm still so shocked that the #Emmys would include such a racist bit in Robin Williams tribute. Out of all his great work, really?
