As if caught by surprise [or already being aware of its coming-therefore waiting with baited breath] the summoning of Lord Yeezus’ concert rants that come free with the price of admission wasn’t enough; try being a wheelchair bound fan unable to stand upon his command.
Considering the lyric factoid straight from the self-proclaimed genius’ discography, citing: “they tryna put me on the schoolbus with the space for the wheelchair,” one would think Kanye would understand [the plight of a wheelchair-bound man].
This past Friday during his concert, after scanning the audience and discovering that not everyone was standing, West went left, threatening to not do a song until everyone stood with glee that he took the time to bless them with thee.
To the large crowd at the Qantas Credit Union Arena in Sydney Australia, he warned: “I can’t do this song. I can’t do this show until everybody stand up… Unless you got a handicap pass and you get special parking and shit…‘Imma see you if you ain’t standing up…believe me, I’m very good at that.”
After which, most of the fans got up however, Kanye spotted a pair of concertgoers who remained seated and kept his word by refusing to perform until they stood up like the rest did. Reportedly, one of the two who remained seated raised his prosthetic limb to prove to thy Lord Yeezus he had a legitimate reason to take it sitting. He was then pardoned by Lord West.
As Kanye performed his hit “The Good Life,” he honed in on another seated fan then halted and huffed: “This is the longest I’ve had to wait to do a song, it’s unbelievable!”
In defense of the seated fan, the crowd began trying to make arm gestures to West to inform him the wheelchair bound fan was—really bound. West then sent his bodyguard Pascal Duvier out to the crowd who confirmed the seated fan was indeed bound to a wheelchair-unable to stand. Kanye pardoned him and said [quote] “He is in a wheelchair? It’s fine!”[unquote]
I mean, let’s keep it real here. We all know that in the mind of Kanye, that was the part where the man was supposed to levitate or at least raise out of that chair for the first time in his life, so as to serve to the world, proof and confirmation that some spiritual healing took place by his hands and summoning–proof that his genius also has supernatural powers and the ability to make a wheelchair bound man, walk…kinda like the first 1:05 minutes of this popular culture classic of a Richard Pryor movie…one can’t help but think of Kanye:
i know Kanye west likes to think he's Jesus, but telling a wheelchair bound kid to stand up and dance won't help him

In defense of Kanye (and to serve as proof that he does have super-powers) and will “see you if you ain’t standing up…believe me, [he’s]very good at that”—he did take notice of another wheelchair bound fan at another concert that could not see Kanye as good because his view was blocked—by “standers.” Kanye took notice and made special accommodations for the wheelchair bound fan to see the show…well…to see “him”..I mean, come on..this is Kanye West remember…It’s all about “him.” LoL.
At any rate, have at that little tidbit of proof of the kind gesture:
