Kanye West Pauses Concert While Waiting for Disabled Audience Members to Dance

(Waving Prosthetic Leg)
Kanye West stopped an Australian concert mid-performance Friday night because there were two people in the audience who refused to stand up and dance -- because they were physically disabled:
Kanye was playing a gig at the Qantas Credit Union Arena in Sydney when he stopped rapping mid-song ... ordering the crowd to get on their feet before he'd continue. An eyewitness told the Daily Mail Australia that Kanye said, "I can't do this show until everybody stand up.  Unless you got a handicap pass and you get special parking and s**t." One person in the crowd waved their prosthetic leg in the air and Kanye said they could sit. Shortly after Kanye spotted another person in the crowd sitting down and once again stopped the show -- then sent one of his employees into the crowd to make sure the person was handicap (sic). Once the hired gun confirmed the disability ... Kanye said "it's fine" and rapped on.
I watched some video of the event. TMZ makes it seem like it was nothing. But it was several minutes of awkward micromanagement of audience members. What a diva!

I'm pretty sure his now-former fans embarrassed like that have another word in mind besides "diva"... ;-)

Kanye West is not a nice person. The ego is out of control! I don't see why anybody buys his music.
