Editor’s note: This post contains a tweet that some may find offensive.

Ivanka Trump once told a group of friends drinking in a bar that although she had never seen “a mulatto c—k,” she would like to, BuzzFeed CEO Jonah Peretti alleges.

Peretti tweeted that little tidbit in response to a BuzzFeed News report that Ivanka Trump found her father Donald Trump’s lewd language in a 2005 Access Hollywood video to be “jarring.”

BuzzFeed reports that Ivanka Trump, speaking at Fortune’s Most Powerful Women Summit, said, “That’s not language consistent with any conversation I’ve ever had with him, certainly, or any conversation I’ve overheard, so it was a bit jarring for me to hear.”


According to Peretti, the statement was allegedly made about eight to 10 years ago in a New York City bar where he and Ivanka Trump were drinking with a small group of friends. Peretti and Ivanka Trump reportedly have a mutual friend who invited her to the bar that night.


“She was saying how she first said she had never seen an uncircumcised c—k and then she said, ‘I’ve never seen a mulatto c—k. There’s lots of c—ks I’ve never seen,’ or something like that,” Peretti said.

Peretti’s wife, Andrea Harner, was present during the conversation and told BuzzFeed News via email that the conversation did, in fact, happen. She had no comment beyond that.


Another person who was there that night but wished to remain anonymous confirmed that the gathering did take place in 2008, but had no further comment. Peretti said he shared the conversation because he felt that it was relevant after reading the BuzzFeed News article about her comments regarding her father's lewd conversation with Billy Bush in the 2005 video.

Ivanka Trump has denied ever making those comments.

In a statement sent to BuzzFeed News, she said, “I am not sure if this was meant to be a joke, but in case there is any ambiguity, this is a complete and total lie.”


A spokesperson for Donald Trump sent an email to BuzzFeed News demanding an apology.

“What a little man and a disgraceful liar to smear Ivanka Trump like this,” spokesperson Jason Miller said in the email. “It shows just how far the media will go to tear down Mr. Trump’s family, and we demand an apology.”
