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.

Wow I think Cathy is the biggest dumbass I've ever come across. Babies are not born with Parkinson's . Holy Christ, go do the world a favor and hit YOUR head off a sign. Stupid, stupid idiots.

This guy Kanye West, doesn't have any regard for anyone but his self. No respect for others. Maybe he"ll be humbled when his daughter goes crying to him,because someone told her "she's ugly." Pretty sure she'll enough critism,with those two heathens as her parent's.

He should consult with his baby's grand mama -- Mrs. Kris Jenner. Sure that she can share her PR expertise with her grand baby's daddy, and make some money on the side for herself! This crew brings a new meaning to self absorbed dysfunctionality!

If people can go after Paula for something said years ago, then only fair people go after his distasteful lyrics. Making fun of people with Parkinson's is a form of bullying.

The name "Kanye West" is an offensive lyric.

What do you expect from a low-life thug married to a low-life nobody?

Just read that they named their bay "North" and is calling her by the nickame "Nori". If she takes after her mother she will be Nori the Whori.

Kayne is what he says in a song lyric much of a surprise to anyone? I heard Kim was a pissed but Kayne's boyfriend was madder.

20 token Grammy's in a genre that don't mean much. That ain't saying much.
