Kanye West causes uproar 142 replies

Recently, Kanye West played a show in Sydney, Australia, and urged everyone to get up on their feet for one of his songs. Unfortunately, there happened to be a group of disabled people in the audience; thus, West refused to start one of his songs until they too, stood to their feet.

"I can’t do this song, I can’t do this show until everybody stand up. This is the longest I’ve had to wait to do a song, it’s unbelievable".

In the midst of frustration, West eventually gave a pass to those who had a "handicap pass and get special parking and s**t". West continued to wait until one of the disabled audience members waved a prosthetic limb signaling that they could not stand for West's performance.
