New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg said a magazine erred in reporting he made a profane comment about a woman's rear-end at a holiday party.
Writer Jonathan Van Meter said he overheard Bloomberg making the comment about an unidentified woman's posterior at a holiday party.
"I never said it, and I don't know where it came from," Bloomberg said.
The mayor became angry when the reporter asked if it was part of a pattern of sexist comments made by the mayor.
"OK, you can write anything you want," Bloomberg said. "Don't be ridiculous. That's an outrage for you to say that."
