Watch Kanye West Awkwardly Demand a Standing Reception from Wheelchair Bound Fans
On Friday night in Australia, Kanye apparently stopped his set and told the audience he wouldn’t start again until everyone in the audience was on their feet. This took a lot longer than he liked, because several people, who turned out to be bound to wheelchairs, weren’t able to rise to the occasion. Moments later the crowd booed those fans until Kanye’s people confirmed they weren’t able to stand.
Now, thanks to Youtube, you can watch the awkward encounter for yourself.
The impression is that this is something Kanye does regularly on the road, because he even says in the video that it “doesn’t usually take this long.”
It isn’t clear how this whole incident affected the wheelchair bound fans, but it’s awkward as hell regardless of which way you look at it. Kanye, though, has remained mum on the topic altogether, something that probably won’t be changing anytime soon.
