Yesterday was National Yeezus Day, as people everywhere celebrated the official release of Kanye West's latest album by complaining about the amount of time that had passed since they ordered croissants.

Here we are, only a day later, and there's already an organization complaining about the insensitivity of Mr. West's lyrics.

On the opening track of Yeezus, "On Sight," Kanye 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."

This has the folks at the American Parkinson Disease Association less than thrilled.

Now, TMZ has learned 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."

Chances are that the APDA won't be the only group of people upset about the lyrics, as Kanye's verbiage runs a little more vulgar than usual on his new jawn. If you're interested in catching up on some of the more, ahem, colorful lines from Yeezus, cruise on over to Jezebel where they've broken down the "9 Best Sex Tips" from the album. [h/t TMZ]
