Kanye West is under attack once again for his controversial music lyrics. This time he uses Parkinson’s disease as a punchline and people are outraged, especially The American Parkinson Disease Association.

In the first minute of his song On Sight, Kanye says:

A monster about to come alive again / Soon as I pull up and park the Benz / We get this bitch shaking like Parkinson’s.

Listen for yourself to Kanye’s lyrics off the new Yeezus album below.

The Parkinson’s Disease Foundation Blog considers Kanye’s lyrics to be:

Many of us appreciate the lighter side of having a chronic and degenerative movement disorder, though as many interpret such statements as harsh and insensitive. While it appears Mr. West is familiar with one of the more recognizable symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, there are several other, less obvious challenges people with Parkinson’s face.

This message to Kanye West was written by Tom Palizzi, Chairman to the People with Parkinson’s Advisory Council. He finishes the blog addressing Kanye West directly.

Mr. West, please take a moment and visit http://www.pdf.org to learn more and, by all means, feel free to contact me or my colleagues with any questions.

Fans, on the other hand, are chalking it up to typical Kanye.
