BuzzFeed CEO Says Ivanka Trump Told Him She’d Like To See ‘A Mulatto Cock’

Update 7:45 pm EST: Ivanka Trump has released the following statement:

I’m not sure if this was meant to be a joke, but in case there is any ambiguity, this is a complete and total lie.


Out of nowhere, Buzzfeed’s CEO went out of his way to tell everyone that Ivanka Trump is interested in seeing “a mulatto cock.”

It all started when BuzzFeed News tweeted a story about Ivanka’s reaction to the Access Hollywood tape that brought Donald Trump his worst controversy yet.

OK, no big deal. Just a media company posting one of its many stories on Twitter.

But then, founder and chief executive Jonah Peretti got involved, and well, he didn’t come in peace. Peretti wrote,

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!’

Oh, and just in case you were wondering if Peretti got hacked, the answer’s no. BuzzFeed editor-in-chief Ben Smith confirmed on Twitter that Peretti definitely posted the tweet himself – and that Buzzfeed would be covering the story.

And, indeed, the site has reported on the, uh, news, complete with quotes from Peretti himself. The CEO told BuzzFeed News he sent the tweet from an airport in California and that the conversation in question happened at a Manhattan dive bar 10 years ago.

Peretti recalled,

She was saying how she first said she had never seen an uncircumcised cock and then she said, ‘I’ve never seen a mulatto cock. There’s lots of cocks I’ve never seen,’ or something like that.

The media exec went on to say that he was only prompted to share that information because Ivanka’s comments on her father’s words made their decade-old conversation that much more relevant.

Peretti said,

I have conversations with people all the time and I never share things said in private. I only shared this because I read the article and it felt like that experience was relevant.

So that’s where we are in this election. Even the most-liked Trump can’t escape getting dragged.
