Michael B. Jordan Offers to Replace the Retainer of a Teenager Who Broke Hers Clenching Her Jaw After Seeing His Pecs in Black Panther

Michael B. Jordan, one of the stars of Black Panther, is so hot the mere sight of his body can empower someone to break steel using only their mouth.

Sophia Robb, an 18-year-old from California, broke her retainer while watching Black Panther — specifically after a scene featuring a shirtless Jordan. How do we know this, you might ask? Well, because Robb’s orthodontist posted about it on Tumblr (yes, Robb’s orthodonist has a Tumblr): “That is the fucking funniest shit ever to me this tiny 17 year old girl thirsting so goddamn hard she busted steel.”

Here’s where it gets a bit weirder: A screenshot of the Tumblr post went viral on Twitter — where Robb eventually saw it and realized, hmmm, that sounds a lot like me. (Worth noting: Her orthodontist revealed nothing about her identity in his post and Robb is actually 18, not 17.)

A horned-up teen! A viral Tumblr post! Orthodontia! This story has everything! And just when you think it couldn’t get any better, it does. On Tuesday, Michael B. Jordan replied to Robb’s tweet offering to pay for Robb’s new retainer. “I feel partly responsible,” Jordan tweeted.

Congrats to the happy couple.
