People have called Kanye West arrogant in the past, and this might take the cake. When Ye demanded that everyone in the crowd stand up to hear one of his songs, he publicly humiliated two of his concert goers by literally stopping the music until they stood up.
The concert was in Australia, and was also one of the strangest things anyone had ever seen. One of the people who refused Kanye’s order to stand up had a prosthetic leg, and the other was in a wheelchair. The person with the prosthetic literally had to hold his leg in the air to let Kanye know that he had an excuse not to stand up.
“I can’t do this show until everybody stand up. Unless you got a handicap pass and you get special parking and s**t,” Kanye said, to the dismay of the crowd. He then waited for the man in the wheelchair to stand up before he would perform his song “Good Life.” The problem for Kanye is that the man was never going to stand up, because he couldn’t. So, no matter how long Ye waited and put attention on the man being in a wheelchair, he wasn’t able to move.
Kanye then sent his bodyguard Pascal to literally check to see if the man was actually disabled.
“When he sent Pascal up there he said, ‘He is in a wheelchair? It’s fine!” the witness reported.
Is that the cost of admission to see a Kanye West concert? If so, then maybe you can pass on this performance.
