Jordan Offers to Pay for Black Panther Fan's Broken Retainer

Posted March 08, 2018

The orthodontist said his patient snapped the wire on her retainer after watching Jordan take off his shirt.

It all started with a Tumblr post made by Sophia Robb's orthodontist.

One teenager recently found herself so overwhelmed by Michael B. Jordan's physique in Black Panther, that she literally snapped her retainer from clenching her teeth so hard, according to her own orthodontist. At least, that's what 17-year-old Sophia Robb after her orthodontist BLEW UP HER SPOT on Tumblr. While the post doesn't mention her by name, she knew it was her, saying "Wait".

And once he learned Erik Killmonger has the power to kill retainers, he took responsibility.

Unsurprisingly, her reaction to the Tumblr post took off - with Robb also reassuring Twitter users that she was only joking about the "I'm going to kill myself" line - and it seems even Jordan saw the amusing side of the incident.

Her response to the original tweet has since gone viral, with some on social media declaring it the "funniest thing" and naming Sophia "Today's Internet victor".

Jordan has moved on from breaking foes in "Black Panther" to breaking a retainer belonging to one of his biggest fans.

Jordan later tweeted out a public response to her in which he offered to replace her retainer.

If you're wondering about the retainer, Sophia shared that her orthodontist glued it back together.

Later she shared the story with Buzzfeed.

And now it looks like we know Michael's thoughts on the situation - and he wants to lend a helping hand.

Even her dad got in on the act. She admitted that the idea of the Fahrenheit 451 actor seeing her post is already insane.
