Kanye West Has Awkward Concert Moment, Requests That Fans Stand Up and Asks, "Is He in a Wheelchair?"

Kanye West had a rather embarrassing moment onstage at a recent concert in Australia.

The hip-hop star stopped the music and tried to coax the fans to stand up for him at the show, which took place on Friday at the Qantas Credit Union Arena in Sydney, one of several Australian stops on his Yeezus tour. While most people complied, he then singled out a person who did not, which spurred boos from the crowd.

"Is he in a wheelchair?", West is heard saying to the crowd, in a fan-made video posted on YouTube (warning: contains expletives).

"There's literally two people left," he adds, as several concertgoers start booing. "There's two people left. They don't want to stand up. This is the longest I've had to wait to do a song. It's unbelievable."

He then says, "Now, if he is in a wheelchair, it's fine" and soon continues his performance.

West did not sound angry during the exchange and the fans resumed cheering as the show continued.

At a concert in Texas in June, West arranged for his microphone to be given to a fan in a wheelchair as a gift.

West's wife Kim Kardashian, a self-proclaimed "Yeezus Groupie" and mother of their 1-year-old daughter North West, attended the concert as well.

Local outlet PerthNow featured an interview with the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star.

The most recent season finale of the reality show aired earlier this month and showed the couple's lavish wedding. Kardashian told PerthNow that she and her family plan to start filming season 10 in October.
