Kanye West left fans shocked on Friday night after he halted a performance after two fans to failed to stand up for him, even though one had a prosthetic limb and the other was in a wheelchair.
The star stopped the show in Sydney and demanded that every member of the audience got up and danced.

Kanye told the crowd: “I can’t do this show until everybody stand up. Unless you got a handicap pass and you get special parking and s**t.”

While most stood up, Kanye spotted two people still seated and called on them to get to their feet, refusing to carry on with the show.

It was only when one fan waved her prosthetic limb in the air that the rapper realised his mistake and quickly said “Okay, you fine.”

He then focused his attention on the second fan, who was in a wheelchair, and refused to continue with his song “Good Life” until it was confirmed the man could not stand.

Members of the audience were apparently trying to signal to Kanye that the fan was wheelchair-bound, concert-goers told Daily Mail Australia.

Peter Galbriath, who uploaded the clip to YouTube says in the video description, “Kanye asks everyone to stand up, someone doesn’t. Kanye asks them to stand up, they’re in a wheelchair. Misunderstanding.”
In the four-minute Kanye asks everyone to stand and gets someone to make sure any non-upstanding fans are indeed in a wheelchair before he continues.

Kanye is on his Yeezus tour and has been performing across Australia this month, only earlier this week he was rushed to hospital after suffering from a migraine.
A spokesperson for Kanye West is yet to respond to request for comment.
