Demi Lovato announced on Twitter the results of her DNA and ancestry test and was excited to learn that she’s 1 percent African. Her fellow Twitter users, however, were not as enthusiastic about the news as she was.

“I did a DNA test and found out I’m mainly Spanish, with Native American, SCANDINAVIAN (which I had NO idea), Irish, BRITISH….” she wrote. “And I’m 1% African!!!!”

She then shared a screen shot of her results and was bombarded with angry replies.

“And 100% idiot!!!!! lol!” one person said.

The star responded to all the hate by saying, “Just thought it was cool and totally random. Some of y’all are mean af. Twitter sucks.”
