SYDNEY, Australia -- Rapper Kanye West is known for delivering in-concert rants and his sometimes demanding behavior, but he did something at a recent concert that has made international entertainment headlines.

During a show Friday in Sydney, Australia, West demanded everyone in the crowd stand during one of his songs. While most people did, West spotted two people in the crowd who did not. That's when he stopped the concert and called out the fans. He refused to continue with the show until they stood.

The rapper addressed the crowd saying "I can't do this show until everybody stand up. Unless you got a handicap pass and you get special parking and s**t," according to a concertgoer who spoke with the Daily Mail.

Unfortunately, one of the fans had a prosthetic leg and another was in a wheelchair. At one point Kanye sent one of his employees into the crowd to make sure the fan was disabled, according to TMZ.

Once that was confirmed Kanye said "it's fine," and rapped on. TMZ also said they spoke with a concertgoer who thought Kanye didn't mean to offend and that the whole thing is being blown out of proportion.
