On Wednesday, Donald Trump's daughter Ivanka addressed her father's 2005 taped comments about being able to grab women "by the pussy" because he was famous.

"That's not language consistent with any conversation I've ever had with him, certainly, or any conversation I've overheard," Ivanka said at Fortune's Most Powerful Women Summit. "So it was a bit jarring for me to hear."

BuzzFeed CEO Jonah Peretti was a bit jarred himself, because the one time he met Ivanka she apparently was a bit lewd herself, and he said so in a tweet that rapidly spread around the corners of Twitter that care about this stuff.

Literally just minutes after this hazy memory was recounted, BuzzFeed News got in touch with Peretti, who said that the conversation happened at the Manhattan dive bar Tropical 128 about a decade ago; the pair were in a group of about five other people.

"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," Peretti said. "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."

Update: Ivanka Trump issued the following statement in response to Peretti's tweet: "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."
