The Senegalese striker also had a goal disallowed for offside in Newcastle's 3-0 defeat by their bitter rivals Sunderland, and Pardew has admitted that such decisions were proving to be a "mental blow".
"Unfortunately, I've had a season where most incidents have gone against me," he told reporters.
"It would have been massive for us to get a goal against West Ham.
"I'm still smarting from the Sunderland goal that we got to make it one-all.
"We've got to try and keep our minds together so that we can ride all of that and get through the season. It's a bit of a mental blow."
Newcastle, who are just three points above the drop zone, will play their next match against already relegated QPR before a tough clash against top-four chasing Arsenal on the final day of the season.
