Robin Williams tribute
MTV's Robin Williams tribute branded "offensive" by viewers.

In the middle of MTV Video Music Awards glamorous ceremony in Los Angeles, an extremely short video reel of pictures of Robin Williams was played on the big screen, as a tribute to the veteran actor.

Set to the Coldplay song A Sky Full of Stars, the 20-second video had just six odd images of him in it. The lackluster compilation showed the lack of effort put into its composition.

Outraged viewers immediately took to Twitter to complain the "offensive" blink-and-you'll-miss-it montage, which some compared to a PowerPoint slide show.

Tyler Aaron Glenn, the lead vocalist and keyboardist of the American pop rock band Neon Trees, was the first one to complain about the lackadaisical tribute to the comedian.
