Not only is she “1/16 Jewish”, but she claimed her great-grandfather was “murdered for trying to save the Torah”. This is after she claimed during a 2008 during a trip to Auschwitz:
My mother’s side of the family has Jewish ancestors, and it is quite possible that many of them died in places like Auschwitz….We saw the names of people displayed on the wall who could possibly be related to us, and I got really excited about the opportunity to do some genealogy in Poland someday!
Since she was on the trip with her mother you’d think her mother would have told her, as they stood at the gate, all about this supposed great-grandfather. But whatever. Apparently “part Jewish” is the new “part Cherokee” because it seems like bloggers keep coming out to appropriate and/or align themselves with Jewish heritage.
