Michael B. Jordan in "Black Panther" Leads Girl to Break Her Retainer

According to a dentist on Tumblr, it was Michael B. Jordan's gratuitous shirtless scenes in the film which hit one of his patients right where it hurt: in her orthodontics. I pressed my tongue against my permanent retainer and clenched my jaw so hard that the wire disconnected from my teeth.

The world first became aware of 17-year-old Sophia Robb's predicament when her orthodontist posted about it on his Tumblr account, which quickly went viral on Twitter.

On Monday, Twitter user @pixyrue identified herself as the patient mentioned in the post.

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".

Even her dad got in on the act.

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.

Now, Jordan himself has waded in, offering to replace the girl's retainers. The orthodontist, on the other hand, managed to glue the wire together during her visit.

Sophia told Teen Vogue that she thought the Tumblr post made by her orthodontist was "hilarious". And, no, she didn't damage it by munching down on a piece of hard movie candy.

Sophia admitted that the response to the post has been "overwhelming" but she's been trying her best to keep up with the response.

"It's a amusing story and I'm not embarrassed about it".

At the time when the interview happened, Jordan has not yet responded to his fan's tweet. Sophia has already started considering what she would do if the actor does reply.
