You can’t make this stuff up.
Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren refused to take a DNA test mailed to her by Indian-American entrepreneur V.A. Shiva Ayyadurai, who’s running against her for her U.S. Senate seat.
“I’m deeply saddened @SenWarren refused my thoughtful (gift-wrapped) Birthday Gift: the 23&me DNA Test Kit,” Ayyadurai tweeted Sunday. “Most unfortunate! #FakeIndian.”
Ayyadurai then posted hilarious screenshots of a DNA test kit he purchased online as a birthday gift for Warren, who turned 68 in June.
Boston-based businessman and inventor V.A. Shiva Ayyadurai is the real deal. Ayyadura, a Republican, received a Ph.D. and his undergraduate degree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
Ayyadurai is running on the slogan: “Only a real Indian can defeat the fake Indian.”
Elizabeth Warren has been widely mocked for claiming she’s part-Cherokee Indian. “Pocahontas” Warren once cited her “high cheekbones” as proof of her bogus ethnicity.
