Kanye West Tells Wheelchair-Bound Concert-Goer To Stand Up Or He Won’t Rap (VIDEO)

On Friday, rapper Kanye West brought his performance to a halt to call out two fans in his Sydney audience who remained seated during his show. Why didn’t they just stand up like the rest of the crowd? One fan had a prosthetic limb, and the other was in a wheelchair.

During the show, West announced that he wouldn’t continue performing until every single one of his audience members were standing up. The rapper said:

“I can’t do this show until everybody stand up. Unless you got a handicap pass and you get special parking and shit.”  [source]

West then waited for several moments, surveying the crowd. It wasn’t until West saw a sitting fan wave his prosthetic limb in the air that he moved on.

Shortly after, West saw another seated audience member and sent a bodyguard to confirm that they were actually in a wheelchair. Stopping his performance of the song ‘Good Life,’ West said as he waited for the fan in the wheelchair to stand:

‘This is the longest I’ve had to wait to do a song, it’s unbelievable.’ [source]

Although the crowd tried to motion and shout to the singer that the fan was wheelchair-bound, West still waited for his bodyguard to verify the fan’s condition. After West got confirmation, he proceeded with the show.

Many of West’s fans were disgusted by the rapper’s insensitive demands:

Previously, West has not ever taken issue with his disabled fans – just last summer, he gifted his microphone to a wheelchair-bound audience member. However, his latest stunt is baffling – as many Kanye West stunts are.
