Controversy’s favorite child Kim Kardashian found herself in the midst of yet another hurricane after she posted a selfie to her Snapchat story on July 11, 2017. Soon, the American reality television star started getting comments from people accusing her of using cocaine. Among several tweets, an Irish Twitter user’s post got the most traction. Referring to the selfie that showed two conspicuous white lines on a table in the background, the Irish woman tweeted, “Ohhhhhh @KimKardashian caught out with cocaine .. durtayyyyy”.
Seeing the issue spreading like wildfire on social media, Kardashian posted a quick justification. She tweeted, “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.” However, people did not buy her idea of sugary lines and raised questions like, “You keep your sugar in cut lines? Neat.”
Unable to convince her fans, the 36-year-old star finally visited her hotel room again only to find that the lines that people perceived as cocaine and she believed to be sugar were actually a pattern on the marble table. Instantly, she posted pictures of the table, followed by a video that showed her scratching the pattern on it. She posted on Twitter and Snapchat, “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!” Finally, the mystery over Kim doing cocaine in a hotel room ended up at the marble table.
In the past, many famous personalities and actors like Robert Downey Jr., Angelina Jolie, Robin Williams, Kate Moss and Drew Barrymore have become “infamous” for their affair with cocaine. In Barrymore’s case, cocaine addiction landed her in a rehab when she was only 13, while a cocaine injection cost Whitney Houston her life at the age of 48.
Cocaine is a highly addictive stimulant drug that increases the levels of dopamine in the brain circuits controlling pleasure and movement. It can be used by snorting, injecting into the bloodstream or smoking. According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH), about 2 million people aged 12 years or older used cocaine in 2015 in the United States.
Cocaine addiction is a life-threatening condition, which requires timely medical attention. If a person is grappling with addiction to cocaine or any other addictive drug, he/she should immediately seek professional help from a reputed mental health care provider. Remember, if left untreated, cocaine addiction can ruin one’s life.
