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.

I lost both my parents to Parkinson's. And I know others with it. He is such a punk! And if I ever saw him I would slap him like the Bitch he is.

He's hanging around with the Kardashians, so obviously he is ignorant --- not to mention crude and insensitive.

Neither he nor his big booty gf have any class. Never did like either one, and never will. People actually buy his BS, that is what amazes me, it's nothing but ghetto talk. Nothing to be proud of there.

I've had Parkinson's for ten years.While I find his comment on the disease ignorant,what bothers me more is his use of the word bitch in describing a female.Why does our society give a hateful person,like that,a pass.Why do people buy his music?
