— -- Kanye West faced an awkward moment during a Friday concert in Sydney.

The musician was performing his hit “Good Life” when he stopped the performance. The energy was wrong. He wanted everybody to stand.

He got annoyed when two fans wouldn’t rise. So he waited. One minute. Two minutes.

“There’s literally two people left,” he said.

“Stand up, stand up, stand up,” the fans chanted.

One of the fans reportedly held up a prosthetic limb, according to The Independent.

Someone else was still sitting.

“This is the longest I’ve had to wait to do a song. ... It’s unbelievable,” West said. “Now, if he’s in a wheelchair, then it’s fine.”

West apparently waited for confirmation from one of his bodyguards -- yes, the fan was in a wheelchair -- before launching back into “Good Life” with no apparent apology.
