Kim Kardashian shut down accusations that she was doing cocaine following this unfortunate selfie

Two lines of… sugar in the background. Or marble.


A couple of days ago, Kim Kardashian was hanging out in a fancy hotel room on a Monday afternoon (as you do) and she posted a dubious-looking selfie to her Snapchat story. Why was it dubious?

Well, everyone watching noticed two conspicuous white lines in the background

Thousands of people accused her of accidentally posting evidence of cocaine use.

But it was Irish Twitter user @Doirs19′s tweet that went viral – and eventually prompted a response from Kim

She claimed that it was sugar from a “candy mess” North was having earlier that day

OK, seems plausible.

A lot of people didn’t really buy the excuse though – with the main question being an obvious one

Chrissy Teigen weighed in to defend Kim on this important issue

That brought the story up to last night – and things got even more interesting from there.

Kim took to Twitter and Snapchat and changed her story. She returned to her hotel room and discovered that it wasn’t lines of sugar at all – it was the pattern of the marble table

And she posted a few more photos of the table in question as evidence

Along with a video explaining the mishap and the incorrect excuse

So now.

The cocaine conspiracy theorists had to reassess their position after the bombshell marble evidence was posted – Kim’s ‘Zapruder film’, if you will.

The lesson here? Always be on the lookout for dodgy background items – and *always* get your story straight before throwing out the excuses.
