Ivanka Trump has some explaining to do.
The socialite and reality star allegedly used a racial slur when describing a man's penis to the CEO of Buzzfeed close to a decade ago, and he decided to spill the tea. The executive, Jonah Peretti, tweeted the lewd remark last night and then confirmed it's authenticity in an interview later.
Warning: highly offensive language ahead...
Peretti said that he met Ivanka at a Manhattan bar with about five other people back in the early '00s and she "casually said" to him, "I've never seen a mulatto cock, but I'd like to!"
Surprised Ivanka would be shocked by lewd language. I met her once & she casually said: "I've never seen a mulatto cock, but I'd like to!" https://t.co/WrgCoM0MGK— Jonah Peretti (@peretti) October 19, 2016
Folks immediately tried to verify the authenticity of the tweet, and Peretti confirmed it's 100 percent real.
"Of course, it was memorable just because of the use of the lewd language and racist language," he later explained. "It was also memorable being in the environment of being… in New York, sometimes liberal and progressive people make comments meant as jokes and not necessarily earnest. I didn't know how to take it."
Ivanka, as expected, immediately clapped back and denied she made the comment. "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," she said.
Well, Peretti insists otherwise and he says five others heard it, too.
