Kanye West

Kanye West
is being slammed as "ignorant" and "distasteful" over a lyric on his new album which uses Parkinson's disease as a punch line ... TMZ has learned.

The song in question is called "On Sight" -- which includes the lyric, "A monster about to come alive again / Soon as I pull up and park the Benz / We get this bitch shaking like Parkinson's."

Now, TMZ has learned the American Parkinson Disease Association is upset about the lyric -- with the org.'s VP Kathryn Whitford telling us, "We find these lyrics distasteful and the product of obvious ignorance."

FYI -- the APDA has been around for over 50 years and it's the largest organization in the country dedicated to helping those with Parkinson's and furthering efforts to find a cure.

So far, no response from Kanye's camp.

My Grandfather and Mom died of Parkinson's and it's a terrible and protracted death. Hope this POS goes quickly and the sooner the better, like a .45 cal to the place where his heart should be.

What would you expect from someone as narcissistic and self absorbed as he is! Poor child does not have a fighting chance! I wonder how proud his mama would be of him today?

Offensive or not, that's just a flat-out crappy lyric. Really? That's what passes for hip-hop these days? *facepalm*

TMZ put this trite story on here, because they do not want comments on his relationship with KK. DM says Kayne is DESPERATE to marry KK? I wouldn't be surprised if KK pulls a Kourtney. Grab the sperm & run. No hubby needed! The Kardashian way?
