Kanye West On The Offensive Once Again. Offensive Lyrics That Is

Kanye West might be on top of the world right now, what with him becoming a father and his sixth studio album Yeezus getting snatched off the shelves (ok, off online retailers, whaterver) at excessive speeds, but he seems to have gotten himself into quite an awkward situation with some of his lyrics. The line "A monster about to come alive again / Soon as I pull up and park the Benz / We get this b**** shaking like Parkinson's." has gotten a UK charity, dealing with sufferers from Parkinson’s disease, quite riled up.

Parkinson’s UK Chief Executive Steve Ford has criticised the rapper over his 'On Sight' lyrics, saying that West has "shown an inexcusable level of stupidity and cruelty towards people living with an incurable condition".

He added, via the Mirror: "Life with Parkinson's is difficult enough without becoming fodder for insensitive celebrities who should know better, looking for their next big hit. 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 worse."

Apparently, even when Kanye tries to be mature and grow with his musical direction, trouble seems to stick to him like the paps do to Kim Kardashian. And the bit that makes this story painfully ironic – one of Kanye’s biggest inspirations, boxer Muhammed Ali, is a longtime Parkinson’s sufferer and has been battling the disease for over 30 years.
