Kanye West Yells at Wheelchair-Bound Fan to 'Stand Up' at Concert [Video]

It is being reported that during a concert in Australia, Kanye West yelled at a wheelchair bound fan and another person who had a prosthetic limb to stand up which they did not do. Apparently West got upset at that they failed to do what he ordered the crowd to do and that was get up on its feet and start dancing.

The event supposedly occurred during a concert in Sydney, Australia, and West reportedly stated that he could not do the song he was about to unless everyone stood up. He then stated, unless the person had handicap passes and received special parking permits and things of the sort they were to stand up. He told the crowd that he could see them if they were not standing up because he was extremely good at that kind of thing.

Next came his big foot-in-his-mouth-moment. While the majority of fans had gotten up and were dancing, West happened to see a couple of concert attendees who stayed in their seats. He then refused to go on with the concert until each of them arose to their feet and began to dance just like everyone else.

One of the fans who was singled out ended up raising a prosthetic limb, which thereby proved that she did indeed received special parking privileges and “things like that.” When West saw it, he nodded and told her that she was, “Okay, you fine.”

However West still was not satisfied. He then turned his attention to the second person who was, of course, still seated, due to the gentleman being in a wheelchair. West completely stopped his performance of the tune The Good Life and exclaimed that this had been the longest he had ever had to wait to do a song and that it was unbelievable to him. The crowd of fans, around the wheelchair bound male, was seemingly trying to let Kanye in on the larger-than-life blunder he was making, with the whole section performing various wheelchair indications with their arms  trying to clue West in on his mistake.

However it was all to no avail because Kanye still sent out his hulking bodyguard Pascal Duvier through the crowd to make sure that the seated fan was, for sure, in a wheelchair. After Duvier informed West that the person was, West repeated, “He’s in a wheelchair? It’s fine.” A video copy of the whole debacle is below for readers to view if they so choose:

Twitter has been going wild with fans tweeting their anger and displeasure at what West did. They have been giving him a really hard time about it and are extremely upset about Kanye allegedly pulling the stunt. He yelled at a wheelchair bound fan and also another individual who had a prosthetic limb to both stand up because they had each failed to when he told the crowd to get up on its feet and start dancing.

The happening occurred during a concert in Australia, and Kanye reportedly declared that he could not do the song he was about to unless everyone was standing on their feet. He then stated, unless anyone had handicap passes and received special parking permits and those sorts of things, they had to be on their feet. He told the fans that he could see them if they were not up and dancing because he was very good at that.

    All i can think of is family of mine being in those two fans’ position, being yelled at by the musician they admire, spending time and money to catch a glimpse of him, with anticipation of a good time. The pain and humiliation a crowd of thousands chanting at them to do what they will never be able to do again; walk, stand and dance. The pain and struggle of disability is something only the disabled and family members of those, will ever know.

    The need to control his environment is debilitating to him. He can not even finish a song…unless..his will be done. Adulation is given to a recording star….they give us about 2 minutes of a good song on a CD….does not come out even..to me.
