Kim Kardashian is defending Kanye West after the media went wild in response to a report that he demanded a fan in a wheelchair stand up during his Sept. 12 concert in Australia.

Kim took to Instagram on Sept. 15 to fight for her husband.

"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 is right -- Kanye did give a special call-out to the handi-capable.

Kanye said, "I can't do this show until everybody stand up. Unless you got a handicap pass and you get special parking and s**t," according to TMZ.

The problem is that the comment was likely hurtful to the person in the wheelchair.

According to the initial report about the incident, the crowd actually boo'ed the person who physically couldn't stand up (they weren't aware the person was in a wheelchair).

While it's nice that Kim wants to defend the man she loves, it's fairly obvious that the incident, despite being a miscommunication, has offended many.

But it seems as though Kanye doesn't think he needs to apologize for the situation, either.

He hit the stage in Brisbane, Australia, on Sept. 14 and blamed the media for the negative spin on the incident.

TMZ released the video of Kanye's rant about the media, where he called out noted TV personalities like Matt Lauer, Whoopi Goldberg and Michael Strahan.

Kanye said this about the media: "They want the masses, the people who have never even heard one of my albums to somehow read a headline ... and think I'm a bad person."

He also said: "Look at me for a second. Take a step back and look at this. I'm a married, Christian man with a family. At my concerts I make sure everybody has as good of a time as possible."

He ended by saying, "Pick a new target."
