The singer was reading a poem at a show in New York earlier this month (12Mar09) when he stopped midway through and reportedly berated a disabled person at the front of the audience.
According to an online blog, Garfunkel stopped reading his poem at least twice and then said: “I try to be kind to the handicapped, but I’m trying to put on a show here.”
A fan in a wheelchair was then apparently wheeled out.
And supporters of the singer have lambasted his behaviour, with one person writing online, “He is an arrogant (bleep). I am sorry I did not walk out of the concert.”
The manager of the Turning Stone Resort and Casino has confirmed an incident involving Garfunkel took place at the show.
No more details were available as WENN went to press.

So leesse, tries to turn Paul Simon into his assistant, screams at asssitants, and insults the disabled. We haven’t even mentioned Angel Clare. Art Garfunkel is a nasty bastard.
