Kim Kardashian is slamming the baseless claim that she was caught with cocaine. On Tuesday, the reality star used Twitter to set the record straight after false speculation erupted on social media.

The completely untrue allegation stems from a Snapchat video Kardashian posted on Monday. In the clip, she spoke about the latest collection for Kids Supply, the clothing line she and husband Kanye West started. On the counter behind her appeared to be a white substance. See the video in question below.

A Twitter user with the handle @Doirs19 screegrabbed the Snapchat and tweeted a photo of Kardashian with the white material in the background. The person exclaimed, “Ohhhhhh @KimKardashian caught out with cocaine .. durtayyyyy.” But less than an hour after the tweet, the mom of two fired back a response.

“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. Dylan’s Candy Shop is a well-known chain of candy stores run by Dylan Lauren. The items are also available nation-wide through online ordering. After giving the reasonable explanation, Kardashian went back to promoting the new Kids Supply clothing, which will be released next week.

This is not the first time the famous family has been targeted with unfounded drug accusations thanks to social media. Nearly two years ago, Khloe Kardashian was falsely accused of doing drugs at Kylie Jenner’s graduation party. The festivities were documented on Snapchat, where a video showed Kardashian twerking as an unidentified guest sat next to her laughing and sticking his finger into something before licking it. Similar to now, the footage sparked claims of cocaine use.

But Khloe angrily clarified on Twitter, “You guys will make up anything. No! No one was doing coke at a graduation party in broad day light with teenagers and 15 production cameras. We aren’t as wild as you want to believe. We were taking Jell-O shots though and you have to scrap[e] the rim of the glass w ur finger to loosen up the jello in order 2 take it.”

“Just say no to drugs kids! Drugs so not our style,” she added. Indeed, while the sisters do drink alcohol, they’ve never been caught with illicit substances, unlike a number of other celebrities. It’s a shame so many are quick to assume the worst about them, particularly in this era of fake news.

UPDATE: Kardashian later realized it wasn’t sugar on the table, either. In actuality, what appeared onscreen was the marbling in the table top. She tweeted, “OMG you guys!!! Check my snap chats or insta stories I’m crying!!! That was not candy on my table! The table was marble this whole time!” See additional video below.
