INGLEWOOD, CA (PIX11) – MTV’s Video Music Awards paid tribute to the late Robin Williams Sunday evening.
The photo montage honoring the late comedian and actor was played after American girl group Fifth Harmony accepted their “Artist to Watch” award.
The tribute included a variety of photos of Williams. It was accompanied by Coldplay’s 2014 single “A Sky Full of Stars.”
TIME reports the tribute was exactly 23 seconds long.
Reaction to photo montage was mixed on social media. Some expressed sadness, while others believed it was too short.

That “tribute” to Robin Williams was so abrupt and short that it was almost offensive like he deserves way more than a 5 second clip idk
