Kanye West tells fans in wheelchairs to stand up

18 September 2014, 09:54

Sydney – What’s a Kanye West concert without one of his infamous rants?

According to the Hollywood Reporter Kanye stopped the show at the Qantas Credit Union Arena and asked everyone to stand for the next song.

When two fans remained seated Kanye refused to continue until they stood up.

According to the DailyMail, witnesses reported that one of the seated concert goers waved a prosthetic leg to explain why they weren’t standing, which he then acknowledged.

He then sent over his bodyguard to find out why the other fan wasn’t standing and discovered that the fan was in fact in a wheelchair. After confirmation from his bodyguard Kanye continued his song.
