The Latino pop star's medley of Dancing In The Street, Mr Postman, and Tears Of A Clown during Black History Month in the U.S. caused much derision on social media.
"On the very first day of Motown Berry Gordy told the five of us who were present, 'I'm gonna start my own record company and we're gonna make music for everybody and always be sure to make quality music that the world can enjoy.' And through the Grace of God and hard work and determination, we accomplished that", Robinson continued.
Previously, he had said that he thinks "anyone who is upset is stupid".

"Motown 60: A Grammy Celebration" will take place on February 12. And while no one seemed to deny that Lopez, 49, entertained with her high energy, her dancing, and her costume changes, many thought that she just wasn't the right artist to give such a performance. But when the show announced that Jennifer Lopez would be included in the performance, people weren't quite sure what was going to go down. Huffington Post editor Phillip Lewis posted, "I'll never understand why they didn't choose someone Black for a MOTOWN tribute". They were then joined by host Alicia Keys who helped her sing "Papa Was A Rolling Stone".
Though Robinson noted that Lopez has credibility "growing up in her Hispanic neighborhood", he said debating whether or not she's even qualified to sing Motown music is missing the point of Motown music. When Ne-Yo came out to contribute a rendition of Stevie Wonder's "Another Star", the spirit of multiple black artists singing Motown hits nearly felt like a tribute -except with Lopez perched atop the white grand piano Ne-Yo was playing and diva-worthy fireworks exploding for the finale. "I could cry. It's such a good moment", she smiled.
"Any type of music can inspire any type of artist", she said. So needless to say, J Lo's performance didn't sit well with many who questioned why a Black woman wasn't chosen to perform the tribute. I mean, I desperately wanted to see at least ONE Diana wig.
