The American Parkinson Disease Association is highly upset over Kanye West’s mention of Parkinson’s disease on the song “On Sight” that appears on his new album Yeezus.
As reported by TMZ, the APDA is calling out Kanye West as “ignorant” and “distasteful” for using Parkinson’s disease as a punch-line on Yeezus’ opening track “On Sight.”
The lyrics in question are as followed:
“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 to a clip of the “controversial” lyrics from “On Sight,” below:
The APDA VP Kathryn Whitford issued a statement voicing her displeasure with Ye’s lyrics:
“We find these lyrics distasteful and the product of obvious ignorance.”
As of press time there has been no response from Kanye West nor his camp about the statement from the American Parkinson Disease Association.
