Rapper Kanye West, who likes his audience to be on their feet when he performs, reportedly stopped his act when two fans didn’t stand up.
During his performance at a concert, he stopped the show because two fans weren’t standing up. One of the fans was actually in a wheelchair, and one had a prosthetic limb, but he didn’t appear to believe them.
West stopped the concert and asked everyone to stand for the next song “unless you got a handicap pass where you get special parking and s—,” he told them.
He gushed about being able to see anyone who wasn’t standing, which is when he noticed the two fans who were still seated. He waited for them to stand and even asked the crowd whether the two people should be forced to move seats. Members of the crowd started chanting for them to stand.
The rapper sent over a member of his security team to solve the situation.
This is the longest I’ve had to wait to do the song — it’s unbelievable.
Finally, after repeated questioning from the rapper, he was satisfied with the fans’ reason for not standing.
You say it’s cool, it’s a wheelchair?
