Fuck, now I gotta buy a frame.
and University of Aukland dissection of a Colossal Squid specimen live!
Here is the video of Kanye West’s concert in Sydney, where a bunch of idiots claim that he stopped the concert to demand a wheelchair-bound fan to stand up:
At the 2:30 mark:
“Now if he is in a wheelchair, then that’s fine.”
Two minutes and thirty seconds into the video, Kanye West says “Now, if he is in a wheelchair, then that’s fine.”
"IF HE IS IN A WHEELCHAIR": Kanye West did not know for sure that the man was in a wheelchair.
“THEN THAT’S FINE.”: Kanye West suspected that the man was in a wheelchair, and reasoned not to demand a wheelchair-bound man to stand up.
Also note the setting: a fucking concert in an outdoor stadium.
I don’t know how many of you have been to large, stadium-set concerts, but they’re not exactly easy on the senses.
Note the massive, loud, yelling crowd, and the massive, loud, booming sound system, and the massive, bright, blinding lights that would no doubt be impairing the man’s ability to understand what is going on with individual members of the crowd, seated far away from him.
Now, Kanye West has no doubt conducted himself in the public eye in a dysfunctional, contentious way. I’m not debating that.
But if you jumped on the bandwagon with a quip at the ready when you heard that “Kanye stopped a concert and demanded that a wheelchair-bound guy stood up”, wipe the egg off your face, and maybe try to curb your desire to play Perez Hilton next time.
