During his concert in Sydney over the weekend, Kanye West demanded that a wheelchair-bound fan stand. Oops! Plus, pics of the Ye and his fam at an Australian zoo inside….
Kanye West’s YEEZUS tour landed in Australia over the weekend. And during his performance in Sydney, he demanded everyone in the building stand to his or her feet. Ye and his rants have become infamous during his tour, but this one may have been one of his most embarrassing moments. He stopped his show and said,
“I decided I can’t do the rest of this show until everybody stand up.Unless you got a handicap pass, and you get special parking and sh*t.”
The crowd began to chant “Stand up!” followed by some boos from the concertgoers. After seeing some fans not standing Kanye says, “Y’all see anyboy that’s sitting down….help him. Is he in a wheelchair? It’s literally two people left.”
Then he says, “This is the longest I’ve had to wait to do a song. It’s unbelievable. Now if he’s in a wheelchair it’s fine. Only if he’s in a wheelchair.”
Someone finally told Kanye the person he was requesting to stand was actually in a wheelchair. His bad!
Peep it below:
Following his Sydney show (and backlash from his wheelchair comment), Ye trekked it to Brisbane last night (with Kim & Nori in two). And during his performance, he clapped back at the media for making something out of nothing. He ranted the wheelchair comment was “bullshit blown out of proportion.”
And instead of requesting everyone to stand up (and blasting those who didn’t) he said,
“Everybody who is not in a wheelchair or handicapped will stand up,” he told the Brisbane audience. “If you can not prove to me that you are in a wheelchair you need to be standing, if you can it is okay to sit down.”
While Down Under….
The Wests hit up an Australia zoo Crocoseum in Queensland for a funday Sunday. During their visit, Kanye, Kim and one-year-old North looked on from the stands at an exciting crocodile show.
And after the show, the Wests got up close and personal with the animals at the zoo, cuddling koala bears and petting cheetahs. No worries…Nori didn’t pet the cheetahs but her mom did.
