Kim Kardashian Shoots Down Cocaine Accusation Sparked by Instagram Video

Reality TV star insists that powdery substance shown in social-media post was sugar

Kim Kardashian doesn’t think accusations of cocaine use are anything to sniff at.

The reality TV star rushed to Twitter on Tuesday to shoot down a suggestion that an Instagram video she posted inadvertently revealed lines of cocaine in her proximity.

In her Twitter explanation, Kardashian said that the powdery substance was actually sugar.

“I do not play with rumors like this so I’m gonna shut it down real quick. That’s sugar from our candy mess from dylan’s candy shop,” Kardashian wrote.

The clarification was offered after mother-of-two Kardashian posted an Instagram video Monday to discuss a children’s clothing line that she launched with her husband, rapper Kanye West, E! Online reports.

At least one observer chose to zero in on the powdery substance in the background of the video.

“Ohhhhhh @KimKardashian caught out with cocaine .. durtayyyyy,” one Twitter user chimed in.

Kardashian has discussed her abstinence from drugs in the past. Last year, after being criticized for posting a naked selfie on social media, the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star wrote a response that read, in part, “I never understand why people get so bothered by what other people choose to do with their lives. I don’t do drugs, I hardly drink, I’ve never committed a crime–and yet I’m a bad role model for being proud of my body?”

Now Kardashian can look forward to criticism from haters accusing her of exposing her kids to sugar…
