The rapper passed away earlier this month.

Fans of Mac Miller were left outraged last night after the rapper was left out of the Primetime Emmy Awards 'In Memoriam' segment.

The show's segment included tributes to the performers, entertainers, writers and producers who had passed away since last year's Emmys, and featured a number of musical and non-television acts.

Soul singer Aretha Franklin, Playboy publisher Hugh Hefner, Comedy Store owner Mitzi Shore and the late U.S. Senator John McCain were all included in the passage.

However Miller, who passed away at the age of 26 from an apparent drug overdose earlier this month, wasn't included in the segment, and the snub didn't go unnoticed.

"I think it’s weird and sad that they didn’t mention #macmiller in that memorium," wrote one user. "He was a singer and a performer, and definitely should’ve been included."

"Can’t believe that Mac Miller was not included in the emmys memorium for people lost this year when many singers/songwriters were included," wrote another.

Fans noted that Miller had his own reality TV show, 'Mac Miller and the Most Dope Family, which aired for two seasons on MTV2 from 2013 - 2014.

The Emmys are yet to respond.

Miller was found in his home in San Fernando on 7th September and was pronounced dead at the scene. An official cause of death is yet to be determined.

Tributes poured in from fans and artists alike, and a vigil was later held at Pittsburgh's Blue Slide Park, which Miller named his debut album after.
