According to Kim Kardashian, this whole Ye wheelchair fiasco was a big misunderstanding and a huge exaggeration by the media. Just what are we referring to? On September 12, during his concert in Australia, Kanye West stopped his show to demand that everyone stand up and dance during his performance. Things got a little awkward when two handicapped fans were allegedly singled out by the rapper for not standing up. Kanye told the crowd:
I can’t do this show until everybody stand up. Unless you got a handicap pass and you get special parking and s**t
At one point, the crowd, not knowing that the two people couldn’t physically stand, reportedly started to boo. After Ye realized the two were handicapped, he politely went on with the show. Watch the clip.
Since news hit of the story, some have criticized Ye calling him insensitive.
Kim posted the following Instagram message, defending her hubby:
What an amazing Australian tour! Its frustrating that something so awesome could be clouded by lies in the media. Kanye never asked anyone in a wheel chair to stand up & the audience videos show that. He asked for everyone to stand up & dance UNLESS they were in a wheel chair. #JustWantedEveryoneToHaveAFunNight #TheMediaTwistsThings
There ya have it.
