A week after being wrongly accused of berating a disabled fan, Kanye West achieved ultimate redemption last night in Chicago when a man in a wheelchair crowd surfed during his performance at Common's AAHH! Festival.
You can see the man in the photo above, taken by Twitter's @lxscope, towards the center-right of the frame in a jersey with the number 54 on it. (UPDATE: A commenter has pointed out that the man is wearing a Brian Urlacher jersey. The hardworking dads of Chicago would be proud.) He is being held up by a few others, right in Kanye's sightline.

It does not appear that Kanye acknowledged the fan, but their connection is undoubtedly unspoken.
Last night, Kanye slept easy for the first time in days.
