In a recent concert in Sydney, Australia, with his wife and daughter in the audience, Kanye not once, but TWICE, singled out a person with a disability.
Not standing to salute the Almighty Yeezus, he not only used derogatory statement about people with disabilities and requiring "special parking and shit", he literally stopped his performance to embarrass and harass one person with a prosthetic leg and one in a wheelchair (don't you love the title of the video "Kanye West Sydney wheelchair misunderstanding"). Waving his prosthetic leg, one man was given a pass.
Don't believe he can stoop this low? Just watch another video on Fox News.
Are you kidding me?
“I can't do this show until everybody stand up. Unless you got a handicap pass and you get special parking and s**t,” he shouted. The crowd was reportedly trying to clue Kanye in to his epic ableism, with the entire section making wheelchair signals with their arms. On a mission, West sent his bodyguard into the crowd to confirm that the seated fan was, in fact, in a wheelchair. When it was confirmed, West said, “He is in a wheelchair? It’s fine!” WTF?
****UPDATE: I have to share his "response" where he address the crowd and makes himself the victim. Definitely a new low.
Mr. West, if you keep on being a target in the media, maybe you should acknowledge and take responsibility for your own ignorance and offensive behaviour. Just a thought.
