Ugh. Right when we thought Ivanka Trump had a moment of clarity…
However, it turns out the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.
On Wednesday, BuzzFeed CEO Jonah Peretti took to Twitter to share a controversial conversation he heard straight from the blonde’s mouth!
The media mogul confessed he was shocked to learn the 34-year-old condemned the GOP nominee’s gross remarks, saying that he’s heard Miz Trump talk about “a mulatto c*ck” in a past encounter:
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

The 42-year-old told BuzzFeed News that the offensive quip happened in a Manhattan dive bar about eight to ten years ago, explaining that Ivanka made the racist remark in front of about five other people.
“She was saying how she first said she had never seen an uncircumcised c*ck and then she said, ‘I’ve never seen a mulatto c*ck. There’s lots of c*cks I’ve never seen,’ or something like that.”
Come on, Ivanka. That’s just not okay.
Jonah admitted that he wasn’t sure how to interpret the offensive comment at the time:
“Of course, it was memorable just because of the use of the lewd language and racist language. It was also memorable being in the environment of being├óΓé¼┬ª 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.”
And his wife, Andrea Hammer, corroborated his story:
“I was there and did hear it but have no comment beyond that.”
BuzzFeed‘s head honcho confessed that he doesn’t usually share private stories, but felt the hypocrisy needed to be brought to light:
“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.”
Ivanka, however, is SLAMMING Mr. Peretti’s claim, telling the outlet in a statement:
“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 spokesman for her famous father also bashed the story, and wants an apology:
“What a little man and a disgraceful liar to smear Ivanka Trump like this. It shows just how far the media will go to tear down Mr. Trump’s family, and we demand an apology.”
What do U make of all this, Perezcious readers?!
