In a tweet seemingly aimed at drawing attention to Khan's Muslim faith, Robinson misidentified a woman wearing a headscarf sitting behind the mayor as Saadiya Ahmed, the Labour MP's lawyer wife.
The post from the former EDL leader, which garnered over 300 retweets before it was deleted, read:
While the image on the left was indeed Khan's wife, the woman pictured on the right was actually Sarah Joseph, a Khan campaigner who joined him at Southwark Cathedral as the 45-year-old candidate was sworn into office.
Joseph accused Robinson of thinking all "brown" women "look the same".
Tackling a news story which quoted Robinson, Joseph ridiculed suggestions she was "Sadiq Khan's wife who has been forced back into her hijab", having to clarify that she was not in fact Saadiya Ahmed.
She also posted a larger photo of the scene at Southwark Cathedral, where she can be seen sitting behind Khan - along with a group of religious leaders.
Joseph even posted a photo of her with her actual husband.
She ended the storming criticism with a sharp jibe at Robinson, saying his "blind hatred" proved "malice knows no bounds".
Robinson has previously been vocal in his criticism of Khan, saying the fact a Muslim has been elected to lead the capital city's diverse capital was "another nail in the coffin of our once glorious land".

He added: "I’m so proud that Londoners have today chosen hope over fear and unity over division," in a jab at the overwhelming negative campaign run by Tory candidate Zac Goldsmith.
It was a tactic that would seriously backfire, not just in the results of the election but also in the reaction of Conservatives:
And even Goldsmith's own sister:
