Some viewers criticize the Emmys tribute to Williams for including a clip of a joke about an Iranian woman that they consider racist. In the gag, Williams covers his face to simulate an Islamic headscarf, and says:
I would like to welcome you to Iran… Help me!
The person putting together the Robin Williams segment for the Emmys decided to use his racist material.
