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

James Mathis III

While watching the box office smash, Sophia Robb clenched down so hard on her retainer when Jordan came on screen that it broke in half, forcing her to make an emergency appointment with her orthodontist to have it repaired.

It was a situation her orthodontist found so amusing that he wrote about the emergency fix, without mentioning his patient's name, on Tumblr. "This tiny 17-year-old girl thirsting so goddamn hard she busted steel". The post quickly went viral and caught the attention of Robb, who tweeted out how embarrassed she was.

Robb has since retweeted MJB's tweet and replied to a number of tweets about her story.

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

It was hard to hate Killmonger, Michael B. Jordan's character, because of how hot he is. While we wait to see if that photo will ever happen, take a look at the original Tumblr post below, along with several of the tweets from PixyRue Twitter over the past few days.

The fan, Sophia Robb, later visited her orthodontist and told him why her retainer was broken, which resulted in the medical professional posting about the anecdote on Tumblr.

What did you think of Black Panther? She said the reactions have been "overwhelming". She shared a screenshot of the evidence. I really do not know how I would respond. But another reason why the movie is so great is the cast.

For those anxious about the plight of the retainer itself, her orthodontist managed to glue it back together.

The fan, named Sophia, talked about her orthodontist and the hilarious incident in an interview with Teen Vogue.

"Since I feel partly responsible for breaking your retainers let me know if I can replace them".
