    You're all so dramatic. Are u really gonna act up about Parkinsons? I mean HELLO??! This is the man that titled his latest album "I am God" and all you're worried about is Parkinsons. Face it - it's a diseAse that's out here. It's probably better that somebody's mentioning than keeping quiet. Isn't that what you've always wanted? Let Kanye be now. C'maaan

    No class! It's obvious because of the choice he made to be the mother of his child.....

    What, Kanye insensitive? Get over your ego-self KW...a little humility and respect for others might go a long way for you. "Yeezus", really? I don't feel the love in your music.

    Nobody was saying ANYTHING about Eminem when he mentioned it NUMEROUS times on his 'Recovery' album, eg. "Girl, shake that ass like a donkey with Parkinsons. Make like Michael J. Fox in your drawers, playin' with an Etch-A-Sketch"- 'Won't Back Down' , OR "Shit, the day that happens, the world will stop spinning
    And Michael J. Fox will come to a standstill"- 'Cold Wind Blows'. He wasn't being disrespectful. What happened to the days when people weren't so offended by lyrics? We live in an age where people play offended to get their 15 minutes of fame, but disguise it a reason to bring attention to their "cause"... What happened to "free" speech?

    @Binky - just what do you teach those children of yours? Is it OK to disparage and mock people with disabilities who have no control over the actions of their bodies? Or do you teach them compassion and respect? Negative comments about Mr. West's "art" aren't borne of hatred, but a recognition that he lives in a world so out of touch with most of us that he feels no obligation or inclination to respect the feelings of others.

    What an ass. Proving it seems to be his only goal. Disgusting fool.

    I don't think Kanye was being offensive to the Parkinson's organization in any way. Although I will say Kathryn Whitford was definitely the one who was being disrespectful, distasteful and the product of obvious ignorance with her comments. Do I think Kanye should apologize for the lyrics to the organization absolutely NOT. Had she paid more attention to the lyrics she would have known they were aimed at a woman not the organization. I found the comment about him impregnating Kim Kardashian.very offensive that was a definite attack on his personal life which is no one's business including her.

    I don't see the big deal, what if he had said something like sweating like a heart attack, is he insulting people who had heart attacks?, I don't see why people with Parkinsons would be offensive, cause that's what they do they shake, how about on the Carol Burnett show when Tim Conway did the shuffle when he walked in one of his skits, is that offensive to people with certain diseases that cause them to shuffle when they walk, America is such a bias country, there is no in-between, they either love you one minute then hate you the next, it's like a pitbull with a strong bit and won't let go, if they have to penalize everyone for referring to a certain disease, then that's too much, focus on helping people deal with their condition and not what a song said, people are going to buy the song more so now that before all this foolishness began.

    Very well said. I totally agree with your comment, but you already know that the haters and unhappy people will post their negative comments. I just wish him a congratulations on his new baby. Some haters talk about how unfit parents Kanye and Kim are, but that's on them. It doesn't make me or break me, I just concern myself on what kind of parent I am to my own kids. Yes, we are all entitled to our opinions, so here is mine to the haters out there, just be happy and positive in your life. When you are happy, then what ever other people do won't even concern you unless it is directed to you. Peace out:)

    This man thinks he can say and do whatever he feels like doing at the coat of others and he is sick and heartless. One thing about he has very few things in his life to be proud of God help his very bad manners and heartless touch to others doesn't rub off on his child. HE AND KIM BELONG TOGETHER BOTH ARE TRASHY AND HAVE NO TASTE AND ARE SO EATUP WITH THEIR SELF.
