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.

I can't wish a dreadful disease on someone.. but when I first read this story - I thought -- > I hope he gets this terrible disease. It is not something to use so callously for record sales. He's a jerk of the highest order.

This doesn't even surprise me. The man has no boundaries, and keeps outdoing himself with his own stupidity. I'm going to start calling him FIMYAY (foot in mouth yay!)

Didnt Eminem us that before? Arent there more rappers/singers that do that same distasteful mess. A song called Bernie Lean uses scoliosis as a punchline. Dont just jump down his back

Where were they when Eminem said this? "Girl shake that ass like a donkey with Parkinson's
Make like Michael J. Fox is in your drawers, playing with an etch-a-sketch"??? Double standard.

This guy doesn't care about anything. The fact that he calls himself "GOD" sums it up. Yet, he wonders why his mother is gone and Lord knows what else is in store for him. His ego and larger-than-God arrogance will hit him where it hurts. He has a kid now. "GOD" always gets even.

Kanye is a miserable, hateful, ugly POS. I will never understand why KK got involved with him. Who wants to be with such an ugly, miserable person??? He has a history of being an absolute pr!ck and will continue to be an insensitive pr!ck. I was so happy when he hit his head on that street sign, couldn't have happened to a more appropriate person!

I love how some of you are saying this is so horrible and distasteful, yet you go right into your own
horribly distasteful comments he and his newborn child.

All you guys crying about this really need to grow the f*ck up. Pretty sure if you are an American, this is the LAST thing you should all be worried about.

They are wasting their breath. Kanye could care less about their feelings. Sad but true. It rhymed with 'Benz' so he went with it. The End.
