Bizarre turn of events sees Kim Kardashian claim she's Irish

Everyone wants to be Irish, including Kim Kardashian.

Kim Kardashian has been following her sister Kylie's lead, keeping herself busy in isolation by 'realising' things... including the life-changing magic of apps.

Tweeting her advice on how best to occupy yourself when at home, Kim K pretty much stated the obvious, surprising no one in saying that "looking at apps" is a great way to pass the time.

Groundbreaking, no?

Keen to get a better understanding of her heritage, Kim has been looking at one app in particular. Taking to Twitter once again to share her thoughts on Gradient, an app that apparently guesses your DNA ancestry from just your photo.

And in a bizarre turn of events, the app seems to think that Kim is 29 per cent Irish.  Or rather, she looks 29 per cent Irish.

Part of a sponsorship deal with the app, Kim posted the results from three different photos of herself - with two of the three claiming that she's part Irish.

Other countries that got a look in include Spain, the UK and Denmark, however it was Kim's Armenian heritage that really shone through,  ranking the highest of all ethnicities in each of the photos.

People were less than impressed that the second eldest Kardashian was using this time to make a couple of bucks, with several quoting one of the most iconic lines from her family's reality TV show to her in the comments.

More than a quarter Irish? Somehow, we're not convinced.
