Kanye West's latest chart offering which contains ignorant lyrics about Parkinson's disease has been slammed by charity.

Parkinson's UK has criticized the 36-year-old rappers' lyrics of a song called On Sight on his new album, the Mirror reported.

He raps, "A monster about to come alive again / Soon as I pull up and park the Benz / We get this b**** shaking like Parkinson's."

Chief executive Steve Ford said West had shown an inexcusable level of stupidity and cruelty towards people suffering from the incurable condition.

Ford said that life with Parkinson's is difficult enough without becoming fodder for insensitive celebs who should know better, while they look for their next big hit.
