Kim Kardashian Defends Kanye West's Wheelchair Incident

Kanye West ruffled a lot of feathers last week (more than usual) when he demanded that everyone at his concert stand up. He said he wouldn't start the next song until everyone in the audience was standing.

Well, there was a little problem with that. A big one, actually. One fan had a prosthetic leg, and after he got called out by Kanye, he waved the leg at him and he was given permission by Yeezus to stay seated.

Another fan was in a wheelchair and 'Ye put the guy on the spot, sending one of his guys over to make SURE he was in a wheelchair before he allowed him to stay seated, too. Gee, thanks.

Of course, people were not happy when they heard about this. When the video surfaced, it wasn't AS bad as the rumors had made it out to be, but it wasn't good, either. A lot of people thought the way Kanye handled it was insensitive.

Now, Kim Kardashian is defending her hubby, with this lengthy Instagram rant, accusing the media of manipulating the story:

"What an amazing Australian tour! Its frustrating that something so awesome could be clouded by lies in the media. Kanye never asked anyone in a wheel chair to stand up & the audience videos show that. He asked for everyone to stand up & dance UNLESS they were in a wheel chair. #JustWantedEveryoneToHaveAFunNight #TheMediaTwistsThings."

All we have to say about that is: here's the actual video, watch it and decide for yourself.
