Michael B. Jordan offers to buy retainer for woman who broke hers watching ‘Black Panther’

A WOMAN has become a viral sensation after her orthodontist took to social media to publicly share the humorous reason behind her retainer breaking.

According to the post, 18-year-old Sophia Robb was at the cinema watching Black Panther when she broke her retainer while clenching her teeth during Michael B. Jordan’s shirtless scene.

“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 .. hard she snapped it,” the orthodontist wrote.


To no surprise, the post quickly went viral – with Sophia also spotting it online.

“Wait. That girl is me. That is my orthodontist’s tumblr. This post is about me?” she wrote on Twitter.

BUT… it gets better!

The man himself, AKA hunky actor Michael B. Jordan, also saw the viral post and sent a tweet to Sophia offering to pay for a new retainer.

“@pixyrue since I feel partly responsible for breaking your retainers let me know if I can replace them,” the actor wrote.

Turns out Sophia didn’t need to take Michael up on his sweet gesture as insurance covered most of the cost, but according to the teen, his response to her message was “the best day of [her] life”.
