Kanye West Under Attack For Parkinson’s Lyric On New Album Yeezus
New dadKanye West is being slammed as "ignorant" and "distasteful" over a single lyric which uses Parkinson's disease as a punch line.
The song in question is called "On Sight" off the rapper's new album Yeezus. The song features 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."
TMZ reports that the American Parkinson Disease Association is very upset about the lyric. The organization's vice president Kathryn Whitford saying, "We find these lyrics distasteful and the product of obvious ignorance."
By the way, 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. It sounds like Kanye has picked a fight with a huge organization.
So far, no response from Kanye's representatives.
