Kanye West Parkinson's Lyric Sparks Outcry

by at . Comments

Kanye West is "ignorant" and "distasteful," according to the American Parkinson's Disease Association, and not just because he impregnated Kim Kardashian.

The group is livid with the new father of Kaidence Donda West (or whatever the baby name really is) for lyrics that use Parkinson's as a punchline.

In "On Sight," from his new album Yeezus, which dropped Tuesday, Kanye raps "A monster about to come alive again / Soon as I pull up and park the Benz."

"We get this bitch shaking like Parkinson's."

Yeah. We can see how some might not be thrilled.

In response to the song, APDA VP Kathryn Whitford said in a statement:

"We find these lyrics distasteful and the product of obvious ignorance."

For over 50 years, the group has been the nation's largest organization dedicated to helping those with Parkinson's and furthering efforts to find a cure.

No response from Kanye's camp ... but we don't recommend taking a page out of Lil Wayne's playbook following that rapper's Emmett Till "apology."

What do you think? Should 'Ye apologize for the lyrics?
