According to Buzzfeed, before performing the hit Good Life West asked the audience to rise from their seats.

"I will not sing the song and do not continue the show if you do not get up. Exception is made for people with handicaps, special parking and other staff", said the rapper.

Two teenagers did not comply with the rapper"s request. One of them even waved with her prosthetic leg to show she was in a wheelchair.

The rapper allowed her to stay in her seat, but he did not understand that her companion also belonged to the people with disabilities.

"I have never had to wait so long to sing this song. Incredible", exclaimed West. After a while, realizing his mistake, West said, "If he also is in a wheelchair, he can sit".

After that little incident, the concert continued as if nothing had happened. Previously, Kanye has never showed intolerance towards people with special needs. During one of the concerts, he let his fan in a wheelchair to sing with him and gave him a microphone.
