NSFDW: An 18-Year-Old Girl Breaks Her Retainer After Seeing Michael B. Jordan Shirtless In Black Panther, Jordan Offers To Pay For Her Replacement! (TWEETS)
Damn. This Black Panther madness is starting to get out of hand. It’s causing actual damage now. In addition to bringing home over $920 million worldwide at the box office, it’s also on the hook for a $700 dental bill.
It all started when an orthodontist shared a story on Tumblr…
“One of my patients came in for an emergency visit because she snapped the wire on her retainer watching the movie when MBJ took his shirt off. She clenched her teeth so f—king hard she snapped it. This tiny 17-year-old girl thirsting so goddamn hard she busted steel.”
That’s right, a girl watching the movie was so damn thirsty, she snapped the wire on her retainer. She just could not handle seeing Michael B. Jordan shirtless. It was too much.
This story only gets better from here. The girl, 18-year-old Sophia Robb saw the post on Tumblr and realized it was about her. She went on Twitter and wrote, “Wait. That girl is me. That is my orthodontist’s tumblr. This is a post about me? I’m going to kill myself.”

Thankfully, she decided against killing herself, ’cause Jordan actually replied to her tweet and offered to pay for her replacement retainer. That’s a f**king balla’ move right there, but Robb didn’t accept the offer because her insurance already covered it.
.@pixyrue since I feel partly responsible for breaking your retainers 🤷🏾♂️ let me know if I can replace them 😅

I think she missed a big opportunity here. She could have been like, “My insurance already covered it, but they don’t pay for my dinners? 😉”
But whatever. It’s her life. She talked to Buzzfeed about the incident and explained the exact moment her retainer snapped…
“So it was the scene where Killmonger took his shirt off for the battle to become king of Wakanda. I pressed my tongue against my permanent retainer and clenched my jaw so hard that the wire disconnected from my teeth.”
