Kanye Stops Concert Telling Kid in Wheelchair to Stand Up

Kanye West is not exactly known for being Mr. Sensitivity, but after news broke about him stopping his concert to tell a fan in a wheelchair to “stand up,” he might just be the most insensitive person on the planet. At his concert in Sydney on Friday, in the middle of the show Kanye stopped the music and said, “I decided I can’t do this song, I can’t do the rest of the show unless everybody stands up. Unless you got a handicap pass and you get special parking and sh-t.” In the crowd there were two fans that could not stand up as one was in a wheelchair and the other had a prosthetic limb, something that Kanye did not find out until after he made the entire crowd jeer at them to “STAND UP.” The rapper even went so far as to complain about how long it was taking for them saying, “This is the longest I’ve had to wait to do a song, it’s unbelievable. If he is in a wheelchair, then it’s fine.” Much to his dismay the fan was actually in a wheelchair, so Kanye just went on to continue his show. The entire incident was caught on camera for all of our viewing pleasures.
