Kanye West left fans shocked on Friday night after he halted a performance after two fans to failed to stand up for him, even though one had a prosthetic limb and the other was in a wheelchair.

The star stopped the show in Sydney and demanded that every member of the audience got up and danced.

Kanye told the crowd: “I can't do this show until everybody stand up. Unless you got a handicap pass and you get special parking and s**t.”

While most stood up, Kanye spotted two people still seated and called on them to get to their feet, refusing to carry on with the show.

It was only when one fan waved her prosthetic limb in the air that the rapper realised his mistake and quickly said "Okay, you fine."

He then focused his attention on the second fan, who was in a wheelchair, and refused to continue with his song "Good Life" until it was confirmed the man could not stand.

Members of the audience were apparently trying to signal to Kanye that the fan was wheelchair-bound, concert-goers told Daily Mail Australia.

Video footage, which appears to be from the concert on Friday shows, the incident unfolding.

Peter Galbriath, who uploaded the clip to YouTube says in the video description, "Kanye asks everyone to stand up, someone doesn't. Kanye asks them to stand up, they're in a wheelchair. Misunderstanding."

In the four-minute Kanye asks everyone to stand and gets someone to make sure any non-upstanding fans are indeed in a wheelchair before he continues.


Nice one Kanye.

Wow. And just the other day I read that his security cleared out a waiting room at a hospital because he had a migraine and thought he was going to die or some shit.

What an idiot.
I have nothing important to say

His tour down here has been a godsend for the usually skullfuckingly boring Australian news cycle.

I don't get how it being a joke somehow makes it any better. Jokes are supposed to be funny.

ya kanye is p much the worst. making fun of ppl that are bound to wheelchairs/missing limbs is the kinda thing ppl w/ no sense of suffering or humanity would do. in that manner at least. that's a direct way of just picking apart someones likely insecurity in front of 20,000+ ppl. anybody who supports it is a human dumpster.

it being a "joke" makes it worse.

you might not enjoy it as much as i did then bc i liked all of the original seasons. but netflix did fund the show without really changing much of anything and i like that a lot. there's also a few good ricky injuries.

its not that any of the seasons are bad, it's just that the first 3 are a work of art. you might not get it. it's honestly done so well as a good canadian kid i couldn't even tell if it was fiction at times it was so on point.

i sort of get what you mean. i think it took me like a season and a half to realize that there was no way it could be real.

also jroc isn't in the new season too much and you can tell everyone is a lot older than they were when the last season ended

well it was to the degree where i could actually imagine ppl just like the characters irl. like one time there was really cheap weed because a guy in the community housing by my house had a grade 8 education or something hilarious and fucked up the grow. half my family on my dad's side could slot in lol.

damn yeah i feel like i miss out on a lot of that show because i didn't grow up in canada. it took a while to get used to all of their slang and various other cultural things.

"Sources"
members of the audience said it was probably a joke.

Because people at Kanye concerts are definitely not biased towards Kanye or anything.
