Based on Kanye West’s clothing choices and controversial statements, the flamboyant hip-hop star seems to have a natural immunity to shame. However, his latest mishap is bound to turn the rapper’s cheeks the faintest shade of red. According to eyewitness reports, the rapper refused to continue his show until two wheelchair-bound concertgoers “stood up.” It was only until the rapper received proof of their handicap in the form of a prosthetic leg waving in the air that the show went on. And yes, there are pictures.

During his Yeezus show in Sydney, Australia, Friday night, West was reportedly heard telling the crowd: “I can’t do this song, I can’t do this show until everybody stand up.” The star stated that this requirement stood for everyone “unless you got a handicap pass and you get special parking and s--t,” the Daily Mail reported.

Proving that West was a man to keep his word, the performer did indeed put his show on hold for “an uncomfortable long amount of time,” according to one Twitter user. He then went on to send his bodyguard into the crowd to confirm that a seated fan actually had “a handicap pass.” Despite fellow concertgoers’ attempt to grab the rapper’s attention by making “wheelchair motions,” it wasn’t until his guard’s confirmation of the fan’s physical limitation that West allowed the wheelchair-bound fans to remain seated. A second handicapped fan began waving his prosthetic leg in the air as proof that he also “gets special parking and s--t,” to which Kanye responded with “OK, you fine!”

A spokesperson for West has not yet responded to a request for a comment, but according to TMZ, a fan present at the show came to West’s defense, explaining that West "clearly" did not mean to offend and the entire thing is just “blown out of proportion.”
