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.

Maybe if these music moguls actually see what these idiots put out they might do something, but as always, its about the almighty buck. And to think that Kanya would then sue for his first amendment rights. Sigh, America is going down the tubes.....

Seriously, did anyone expect anything less from this ignorant idiot? Everything he does is for shock value. If we just ignore him, maybe he'll go away. Let's try it. Certainly, anyone who buys his stuff is on par with him....

the organized group needs something to complain about or the Media attention. For them or someone else to listen and read the lyrics of the song so closely. Another ORGANIZED GROUP feeling a Need to start trouble over a song. IN THIS CASE, ALL organized groups need to GO AFTER Every song that is written and song over the world.

hey Mr. SignHead A.S.Swipe -

You obviously don't know stupid... Rap; today’s sarcoma of pop music, one of the more poignant signs of the continuing coursing of our society, and the ghettoization of America.

Go home and practice, Dink.
