Rapper Kanye West interrupted his Sydney concert Friday, berating two fans for not standing up to dance as he sang “The Good Life” at his Yeezus concert at the Qantas Credit Union Arena. The Inquisitr reported the two fans were in wheelchairs.
West told fans to stand up to honor God during the song and then said: “I decided I can’t do this song, I can’t do the rest of this show, until everybody stand up. Unless you got like a handicap pass and you get special parking and s--- ... I ain’t going to go on with the show unless y’all stand up,” the Daily Telegraph in Sydney said.
West gave fans two options: Stand up or leave, FasterLouder reported.
West then directed his bodyguards to wade into the crowd to determine whether the two still sitting were actually in wheelchairs. One removed a prosthetic limb and waved it as proof. West responded, “OK. You fine,” the Daily Beast said.
Fans were not happy with the behavior and took to Twitter to chastise the singer.
Only Kanye West would stop his concert to tell someone in a wheelchair to stand up and dance.

Wow Kanye West stopped his gig in Sydney because a guy in a wheelchair wouldn't stand up and dance. I'd get up and throw the chair at him.
