Kim Kardashian Defends Husband Kanye West After Wheelchair Concert Controversy

Kim Kardashian keeps it casual while pushing a stroller at the airport on Monday (September 15) in Brisbane, Australia.

The 33-year-old reality star was joined by her husband Kanye West, who is in the city to play his last show on his world-wide Yeezus tour.

Kim recently took to social media to defend Kanye after rumors that he demanded everyone stand up during a concert at Qantas Credit Union Arena.

“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,” Kim wrote on Instagram.

    They are both ignorant and disgusting! There are many reasons why a person would not be able to stand up at a concert even if they are not in a wheelchair. For example, I have lupus and during flares I am not able to stand. But if you looked at me you would just think I’m healthy. Or what if someone has rheumatoid arthritis or fibromyalgia or heart problems or breathing problems? I didn’t think I could have a lower impression of him but surprise, surprise, I now do!

    kimye is busy making their money. while the media and public stay obsessed with them. they are getting the last laugh. hahahaha. love it

  • forrest gump

    kaney is lame since he is an alcoholic.

  • Searcy

    Kanye and Kim–always spinning the truth. He sent his bodyguard down to check the poor guy out. That isn’t something that shows he respects disabilities.

  • Wow

    LIES IN THE MEDIA???? There’s video of it.

  • Wanda

    Kim looks her best without makeup. I actually think these pics are the best she’s taken in a long time.

  • Something

    They look so uncomfortable and affected here! It’s like they’re going, “We have to do a few of these family shots for the paps to show everyone how traditional and family-origented we are”!

    Puke. The most photoshopped and idiotic family in the entire world. Moronic!

    Face it, Kim. Kanye is an @sshole and so are you.

  • Morgaine

    You would think that with all her money, she would have a smart friend (or smart paid friend) to throw in a good explanation! What kind of a ignorant excuse is that ?!

  • Verity

    In her defense, she wrote what her husband told her to write. You all know that everything she does from her clothes, to social media, she does what she is told. Kanye runs the Kim show now.

  • Mean

    Why would anyone want to go to his’s concert? That was dumb on his’s part to say that about people. He wasn’t thinking. Kim you think everything is wonderful for your mean ass husband.

  • Mean

    Need someone to following you to the gate. Let’s see that augly kid.

  • kelli

    @Mean: no kidding, this is the biggest question of all… who attends his concerts? what type of people are out there supporting these two complete morons??

  • Matt K

    Translation: “You guys, he wasn’t being a dick. He was being an asshole. There’s a big difference.”

  • Mary

    The outrage is that he made people PROVE that they were in a chair or otherwise disabled, but Kim doesn’t not seem smart enough to understand that distinction. She’s just not a bright person. They are two horrible people.

  • Jenny

    They’re both disgusting morons. At the very least issue an apology, there is video of the incident, you know you did it, apologize to the poor person you did this to! These two are morons, but how much dumber are their fans who support this stupidity with their money?

  • My Question

    So, if a person decided they didn’t want to stand up at his concert what was he going to do…kick them out??? After they paid their money to see this prick live?

  • suzybel

    Who gives a sh*t.

  • aranka paul

    @My Question:

    Well said indeed

  • Jenn

  • keeping it real

    @Sara: it’s not that serious if you do have a serious health problem why are you there in the first place not being mean or anything just saying
