Kanye West brought his Yeezus tour to the Qantas Credit Union Arena in Sydney, Australia, Saturday night, and demanded that everyone in the crowd stand up before he continued -- including a pair of disabled folks in wheelchairs.
"I can't do this show until everybody stand up," Kanye told the crowd after halting the show in the middle of single "The Good Life." "Unless you got a handicap pass and you get special parking and s**t.
"Imma see you if you ain't standing up, believe me, I'm very good at that."
Most of the crowd at the arena were already on their feet, but the rapper spotted two people still sitting and sent one of his crew members to check it out after one of the fans raised his prosthetic leg in the air to prove his worthihness to remain seated during the show.
"Okay, you fine," Kanye replied, but still wouldn't go on until it was proven that the second fan couldn't stand either.
"This is the longest I've had to wait to do a song, it's unbelievable," the rapper said before it was confirmed that the fan could not stand and he went on with the show.
A video of the incident was uploaded to YouTube by user Peter Galbraith, who wrote, "Kanye asks everyone to stand up, someone doesn't. Kanye asks them to stand up, they're in a wheelchair. Misunderstanding."
While many in the crowd considered it a 'misunderstanding,' we can only wonder how it made those two fans feel.
Remember when Joe Biden put his foot in his mouth once again when he asked a man in a wheelchair to stand up so the audience can see him? I know it’s hard to believe that Joe Biden said something before thinking.
But nothing to see here because that was Joe just being, well, "Joe" and Kanye just being,well.... you know.
Fortunately for them one has a D after his name and not an R and the other is a rapper not a country singer so there will be no suing and it will be written off as a "misunderstanding".
