Advocacy group Parkinson’s UK is drawing criticism against Kanye West and his new album.  The head of the organization said that the album contained an “inexcusable level of stupidity” with a lyric from his latest record, Yeezus, The Guardian reports.  The actual line in question appears in the very beginning of the album where West says, “A monster about to come alive again / Soon as pull up and park the Benz / We get this b**ch shaking like Parkinson’s.”

Parkinson’s UK’s Chief Executive Steve Ford said in a statement, “People with Parkinson’s have to cope with intolerable social discrimination on a daily basis – often to the point where they are afraid to go out in public – and this sort of thoughtless, callous comment can only serve to make things even worse for them.”

The U.S. group American Parkinson Disease Association also chimed in with their opinion on West, with Vice President Kathryn Whitford telling TMZ, “We find these lyrics distasteful and the product of obvious ignorance.”
