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 mother died of Parkinson's, but I'm surprised no one is outraged by his use of the word "bitch". That's offensive to me.

What do you expect, he hasnt been a good rapper since his first album but yet people keep buying his music which keeps him around. Not to mention dudes a racest, ignorant & thinks he can do whatever he wants but again, people keep buying his horrible stuff that he calls music to let him stay around.

NEVER LISTENED TO HIS MUSIC BEFORE AND NEVER WILL, ESPECIALLY AFTER seeing he has NO CHARACTER at the awards with Taylor Swift, nothing would surprise me concerning this ???????? he is sickening. He needs to apologize to everyone for all his STUPID actions.
