Elizabeth Warren Heckled at Campaign Stop About Her Native American Claims: ‘Why Did You Lie?”
During a campaign stop in Georgia on Saturday, Senator and 2020 presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) was heckled at the beginning of her speech.
Before Warren started telling her back story to her supporters, a man started to shout “Why did you lie” at her.
“Be easy, be easy,” Warren said to the man as the crowd booed and chanted “Warren!”
Warren already heckled by someone in red shirt holding a “1/2020th” sign. Escorted out of the gym while the crowd chanted “Warren!”

Eventually, the man was escorted out. It can be seen he was carrying a parody “Warren” campaign sign that read “1/2020,” referencing her exaggerated Native American ancestry claims she made for years.
Following a DNA test she went through, it was found Warren could be anywhere between 1/64th and 1/1,204th Native American.
