We know Kanye West thinks he’s Jesus, but this is just getting ridiculous. West stopped a concert in Sydney, Australia on Friday to demand that two of his sitting down fans stand up and dance. One of the fans had a prosthetic limb, while the other was bound to a wheelchair.

Kanye was performing at the Qantas Credit Union Arena in Sydney, Australia when he stopped the show and said, “I can’t do this song. I can’t do this show until everybody stand up… Unless you got a handicap pass and you get special parking and shit. ‘Imma see you if you ain’t standing up, believe me, I’m very good at that.”

After his terse warning, most fans got up and started to dance. When West looked out on the crowd though, he said two people who were remaining in their seats. One of those fans raised their prosthetic limb to which Kanye West wrote, “Okay, you fine.”

West then turned his attention to a second fan who was still seated. Kanye was singing the song “The Good Life” when he declared,  “This is the longest I’ve had to wait to do a song, it’s unbelievable.”

Fans continually tried to clue in Kanye to the fact that the fan was in a wheelchair, in the wheelchair section, but the rapper was too dense to realize the situation. The pompous rapper send his bodyguard Pascal Duvier into the crowd to confirm that the seated fan was in a wheelchair. West then matter of factly proclaimed, “He is in a wheelchair? It’s fine!”

Fans and detractors of the conceited rapper quickly called him out on Twitter.


Shortly after the incident went down, a fan posted a YouTube video of the strange encounter on YouTube.

I’m not sure what is more sad, the fact that Kanye West could not take a simple clue from his fans, or that he has to practically beg and threaten his fans into standing up to dance at his concerts.
