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.

OMG! What do these people do all day? Listen to random music to see who says anything about Parkisons?' C'mon people! If you don't like lyrics or an artist then don't listen. Listen to the oldies station, a lot of the lyrics are just as distasteful. People need to pipe the **** down!!!

Kanye needs to get some class and morals. His daughter Is going to be so embarrassed by things both her parents do. They both make me sick.

I really don't understand how people think this douche bag is a musical genius. Making fun of people with disabilities is not a sign of genius but rather a sign of ignorance. This guy needs to take a long walk off a very short pier.
