Kanye West stopped a concert yesterday because a single audience member wouldn’t “get on his feet.” Turns out he uses a wheelchair.
Before continuing the music, Kanye sent a security guard to confirm that yes, in fact, the guy was using a wheelchair.
Awkward choice, Kanye.
P.S. An interesting piece of disability etiquette: Most wheelchair users prefer that phrase (“he USES a wheelchair”) rather than the more common “he is IN a wheelchair.” Because the former correctly implies that the chair is merely a tool the person uses. The wheelchair does not define who the person is, as the latter subtlety suggests.
