The 2017 Emmys In Memoriam segment has been called out for a perceived flub.
Following the touching memorial montage of recently deceased Hollywood stars, a slew of viewers took to social media to point out a few forgotten names.
Former TV legends Dick Gregory, Charlie Murphy, Harry Dean Stanton and Frank Vincent were all left out of the tribute.
“Thinking of my brothers Dick Gregory + Charlie Murphy. I’ll never forget you. I miss you both,” Common wrote on Twitter.

Vincent and Stanton both passed away within a week of the show, meaning the showrunners might not have had enough time to update the presentation. However, Murphy and Gregory passed away in April and August of this year, respectively.
One Twitter user pointed out that Jerry Lewis, who was included in the segment, passed away within a day of Gregory.
They had Jerry Lewis. Who died the same day as dick Gregory. So… https://t.co/KqBA8RTjpe
