Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) released DNA results on Monday morning in an attempt to prove past comments about her Native American heritage correct.

The results were … a little embarrassing, to say the least.

The Boston Globe first reported the results, and the publication has already had to issue a correction.

The Globe originally reported that Warren was between one-32nd and one-512th Native American.

A correction issued Monday morning then said, “Due to a math error, a story about Elizabeth Warren misstated the ancestry percentage of a potential 10th-generation relative. It should be 1/1,024.”

Yet another update from the Globe later stated, “Due to a math error, a story about Elizabeth Warren misstated the ancestry percentage of a potential 6th to 10th generation relative. The generational range based on the ancestor that the report identified suggests she’s between 1/64th and 1/1,024th Native American.”

That minuscule amount does not exactly help Warren’s credibility or shine a good light on past comments about her being Cherokee.

Conservatives have had plenty of fun lampooning the fumbled moment from Warren.

Conservative singer Kaya Jones — who actually is part Native American (and is pictured above, far left) — questioned the Warren results on Twitter when they were first released.

“Wait … @SenWarren hasn’t given us the numbers or shown us the breakdown of her DNA & you all are believing & praising her? I am Native & provided proof & have been attacked repeatedly for it. Yeah we would like to see more than just a paper saying you have Native evidence #PROOF,” she wrote.

Outspoken conservative and two-time Academy Award-nominated actor James Woods (pictured above, far right) went after the Globe for needing to issue a correction to its report and for some questionable methods in determining the senator’s heritage.

Writer Andrew Klavan, who helped script the currently in release “Gosnell,” came up with a new nickname for Warren.

“I guess Elizabeth Warren is saying that her claim to be Native American is only 99.9 percent false,” wrote “Death of a Nation” filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza.

The filmmaker also said, “I suspect that, given the criteria being used by Elizabeth Warren, that @realDonaldTrump has more American Indian ancestry than she does.”

Conservative comedian Dennis Miller wrote in reaction, “Oh for God’s sake! I’m pretty sure George Custer had more American Indian blood than that.”

“Gosnell” director Nick Searcy has had plenty of fun with the correction the Globe had to issue to the original report and the fact that Warren is only one-1,024th Native American.

Conservative commentator Ann Coulter mocked Warren’s results and compared them to her chances of being president.

She also jokingly wrote, “BREAKING: Cleveland Indians announce Elizabeth Warren not even eligible to be a bobblehead.”
