People Are Pissed At Demi Lovato For Tweeting She's ‘1 Percent African'

Demi Lovato has never been shy when it comes to dishing out the deets on all sorts of personal matters.

Whether it's giving fans a glimpse of her morning routine and workout regimen or speaking out about touchy subjects such as her issues with addiction and body image, this singer tends to be an open book.

Therefore, it should come as no surprise Demi Lovato recently decided to share her heritage with the world.

After doing an ancestry DNA test, Demi Lovato wrote a Twitter post that revealed she's Spanish, Native America, Scandinavian, Irish and British.
