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.

Kanye West, there is no way to describe this waste of a human being. Why does the press give this moron more ink. Just ignore him and let him go away. You all know that he is destined for prison at some point so just lay back and wait.

But... what stupidity, what does this phrase, that aims at describing someone's behavior, even have to do with people REALLY afflicted with Parkinson's, and their fight against this ugly disease??? Is the World infected with something even worse, and as deadly, we could call "The Virus of Utter Stupidity"...?

What's ignorant? The disease causes uncontrollably shaking. What's offensive? It's the truth.

So what's new? Whoever is not convinced by now that he's and idiot must live without media (And I commend you for that lol)...Kanye....just as a reminder (as if you haven't read/heard this enough)...you suck! But be comforted people...at least the human gene pool will not be affected severely because he kept it contained when he conceived with a genetic equivalent to him....a brainless whore (he literally refers to her in almost all his songs...his pet name for her is "bitch"...so romantic and true)! These people and descendants should be sent to another planet to protect our human race from falling into a superficial world of disrespectful and shallow CRAP!! Mom's crying from heaven K...and rightfully so your stupidity placed her there!
