Kanye West could not have done more to humiliate a fan than the cringe-worthy faux-pas he made during Friday’s concert in Sydney, Australia. The singer refused to continue his show until the entire audience was standing and dancing while he performed.
West didn’t seem to really think it through when he insisted because one of the concertgoers in the audience had a prosthetic leg and another was confined to a wheel-chair.
A concertgoer reportedly told the Daily Mail that he addressed the crowd saying “I can’t do this show until everybody stands up. Unless you got a handicap pass and you get special parking and s**t.”
The fan with the prosthetic leg allegedly waved her leg in the air and Kanye started singing again.

However, West stopped once again when he saw another fan who remained seated.
According to the Daily Mail, West stopped in the middle of his performance of Good Life and said, “This is the longest I’ve had to wait to do a song, it’s unbelievable.”
He then sent a body guard over to make sure the seated fan was indeed in a wheelchair.

“The crowd was also yelling that he was in a wheelchair but he waited for Pascal’s confirmation,” the witness told the Daily Mail. Others apparently made “wheelchair motions” to let the singer know about his awkward mistake.
“When he sent Pascal up there he said, ‘He is in a wheelchair? It’s fine!'” the witness said.
West then continued on with the song.
