Kanye West Blasted For Parkinson’s Disease Lyric

Submitted by on June 20, 2013 – 9:08 amNo Comment

Kanye West is being blasted for an “ignorant” and “distasteful” lyric on his new album Yeezus. In the song “On Sight”, the hip-hop star 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.” The lyric has angered those living with Parkinson’s and advocating for a cure for the disease. According to TMZ:

“…the American Parkinson Disease Association is upset about the lyric — with the org.’s VP Kathryn Whitford telling us, ‘We find these lyrics distasteful and the product of obvious ignorance.’”

Parkinson’s disease is a degenerative disorder of the central nervous system with symptoms including difficulty with walking and shaking. Kanye’s camp has yet to address the controversy.
