It sounds like a complete overreaction on her part. But things like nationality CAN be dodgy things to ask about because you don't know what the other person is thinking.
Be very careful with accents too. Of you could confuse a Canadian with an American just on their accent, the Canadian or American if you've got it wrong get VERY pissed off.
Same with Australians and new New Zealanders.
So things like this are best left out of it untill you know them more or they say first.
Maybe you could've asked , "oh, that's interesting. Are you're parents from here too?" Then if her parents were ,say ,Japanese but she was born here then she could say ,. " Oh, my parents emigrated from Japan". And there's your answer.
She maybe got pissed because she identifies as American being born there after her parents were Japanese born in Japan and moved to the US, but because she looked Asian and you brought that up, then maybe that question was seen as some clash between her biological/indigenous descent versus where she was born. Maybe it was a sensitive thing for her. But i still think her just walking oout so rudely was a bit overreaction.
Waiting for a beam to break through here,
A chain-way vision bright and clear,

Longed for Bliss,
First it was so quiet and now I know I am not alone in here.
Ain't nothin' gonna break my stride, nobody gonna slow me down. I gotta keep on moovin!
If you can read this, you must look at my profile page. I like people who have attention to detail, and curiosity. Have a look, the lion's torso is on diplay :-p
