Kanye West performs on the Marilyn Stage during Day 2 of the 2014 Budweiser Made in America Festival at Los Angeles Grand Park on August 31, 2014 in Los Angeles, CA. 

Kanye West implored the crowd to stand "unless you got a handicap pass where you get special parking and s---.“

Kanye West may want to think twice the next time he forces everyone at his shows to get on their feet.

Did Kanye West Dash to the Hospital in Australia?

The notoriously prickly rapper performed a concert at Qantas Credit Union Arena in Sydney on Friday (Sept. 12) and halted the show because two fans weren't standing up. One of the fans was in a wheelchair, and one had a prosthetic limb, but West didn't appear to believe this.

The rapper continued to be incredulous that the two weren't standing and sent over a member of his security team to assess the situation. "This is the longest I've had to wait to do the song -- it's unbelievable," West lamented.

Finally, after repeated questioning from the rapper, he was satisfied with the fans' reason for not standing. "You say it's cool, it's a wheelchair?" West asked one more time before finally launching into the song.
