Kanye West allegedly pulled a real Joe Biden at a performance in Melbourne last night when he threatened to stop a performance if a wheelchair-bound fan—whoops!—didn't stand up.
According to the Daily Mail, a concertgoer said Kanye announced he couldn't perform a particular song unless everyone was standing, adding, "Unless you got a handicap pass and you get special parking and shit." In this instance, Kanye reportedly moved on when the audience member he was waiting on waved a prosthetic limb in the air, confirming that he did, in fact, get special parking and shit.
But this wasn't the only case of accidentally-asking-a-wheelchair-bound-fan-to-stand Kanye experienced last night—later, the Daily Mail reports Kanye sent his bodyguard to make sure a seated audience member was, in fact, handicapped:
But when another fan remained seated, he stopped the song Good Life, saying, 'This is the longest I've had to wait to do a song, it's unbelievable,' before sending bodyguard Pascal Duvier into the arena to check whether the person was in fact in a wheelchair- which they were.
'The crowd was also yelling that he was in a wheelchair but he waited for Pascal's confirmation,' the witness said, while others said the crowd made 'wheelchair motions' to alert the singer to his mistake.
Kanye continued with the performance after getting the confirmation, telling the wheelchair-bound fan that remaining seated was "fine." Phew!
Luckily, as long as they're standing, Kanye has no problem performing to a crowd of people making wheelchair motions.
