Kanye West is gonna let you finish watching his show, just as soon as everyone in the house stands up—a demand that didn't go over quite so well Friday night in Australia, reports the Independent. "I can't do this show until everybody stand up," the rapper yelled, stopping the show in Sydney and singling out two fans who remained seated. "Unless you got a handicap pass and you get special parking and s--t." Turns out one fan was in a wheelchair, while the other waved her prosthetic leg in response. Responded West: "OK, you fine," and the show went on. TMZ reports that West "clearly didn't mean to offend," as per a source at the concert. (It's not the only run-in Kanye's had on this tour.)
