“I decided I can’t do this song, I can’t do the rest of the show until everybody stand up," West told the crowd at the Qantas Credit Union Arena in Sydney. "Unless you got a handicap pass and you get special parking and s**t."
West added that he would be able to spot anyone who "ain’t standing up, believe me, I’m very good at that."
Then the rapper asked for help from the audience: "Y'all see anybody that's sitting down..."
The detective work went on and West told the rabid crowd it had to wait — and that didn't sit too well those in attendance, many of whom started to boo and chant and holler. One person in the crowd is heard yelling, "F***in' stand up!" as West egged them on.
Finally it came down to a pair of problem fans: "There's two people left who don't want to stand up," West declared, his voice booming through the arena.
“This is the longest I’ve had to wait to do a song," he added. "It’s unbelievable.”
Of course there's the mind-boggling Daily Mail report that West sent his bodyguard into the crowd to check if said non-standers were, you know, limited just a tad by being wheelchair bound.
"Now, if he is in a wheelchair it's fine," West continued, lengthening the delay.
"Is he in a wheelchair there? Only if he's in a wheelchair..." the rapper went on, covering every last detail as he apparently waited for official confirmation.
When it became apparent to the larger crowd that attendees were in wheelchairs and perhaps didn't deserve a peer-pressurized chant to stand, one audience member is heard yelling, "I'm sorry!"
“He is in a wheelchair? It’s fine!” West finally declared, diving into the next song to a flipped out crowd.
Here's the clip. (Warning: A few profane utterances ahead...):
