Ha Ha Clinton-Dix had reason to celebrate Thursday night after being selected by the Green Bay Packers in the first round of the NFL draft.
But a photo the former Alabama defensive back tweeted out hours before his name was called at Radio City Music Hall led some people to think the party might have started a bit early.
Check out Clinton-Dix's tweet.
Folks were quick to point out that the little, white object on the seat next to Clinton-Dix looks an awful lot like a marijuana cigarette.
Several hours later Clinton-Dix noticed all the fuss and decided to clear up the matter.
Lol you guys crazy...that's a piece of tissue. I was in the lobby restaurant at the hotel having lunch.— Ha Ha Clinton-Dix (@haha_cd6) May 9, 2014

The Packers seemed to take his word for it and chose Clinton-Dix with the 21st overall pick.
So to all those who thought Clinton-Dix had sabotaged his own draft status, there's only one thing to say: Ha Ha.
