Kanye West told a wheelchair-bound man to “stand up” at his concert

Oh, Kanye West. So sweet, so innocent… so very, very stupid and inappropriate. During a concert in Melbourne on Friday night, Kanye really wanted the audience to enjoy themselves, so he insisted they stand up and threatened to not go on with the concert until every single person had done so. He’s not totally unreasonable, of course – you were exempt from this if “you got a handicap pass and get special parking and shit”. What a gentleman!

Apparently Kanye needed one audience member to wave one of his prosthetic limbs in the air to prove his handicap and only then was he happy to move on. However, he apparently later sent his security guard into the audience to check that another audience member was indeed handicapped and not just pretending so that he didn’t have to stand at a fucking Kanye West concert (??????).

From The Daily Mail:

But when another fan remained seated, he stopped the song Good Life, saying, ‘This is the longest I’ve had to wait to do a song, it’s unbelievable,’ before sending bodyguard Pascal Duvier into the arena to check whether the person was in fact in a wheelchair- which they were.

‘The crowd was also yelling that he was in a wheelchair but he waited for Pascal’s confirmation,’ the witness said, while others said the crowd made ‘wheelchair motions’ to alert the singer to his mistake.

Uh… okay? Apparently after THIS incident, Kanye said it was “fine” for the fan to stay seated. Does this guy have brain damage or something? I feel like that can be the only possible explanation at this point of the shit he comes up with.

  • This is common for rappers. I went to a concert after double foot laser therapy that left me barely able to walk or stand. The rapper from Gang Star did the same thing to me. I was sitting on the back of my seat to be taller after much screaming at from the rapper but he wasn’t pleased. Cyprus Hill had no issues with me. They were who I endured the other acts to see.

  • People pay a fortune to see one of his shows. They should at least be allowed to remain seated if they want too…disabled or able-bodied. And I can’t believe how direspectful he his to all of his fans, waiting for him to go on with the song and especially with those who are disabled. What an f***ing c***!!!!!!!!!
