SINCE THE RELEASE of Black Panther, Michael B. Jordan has been getting a lot of attention and a lot of new fans.

The 31-year-old actor has spent the last few weeks being hounded by people who are completely mad about him after seeing Black Panther.

17-year-old Sophia Robb was mortified when she went on Tumblr one day and saw that her orthodontist had outed her. Yeah, it’s 2018. Everyone’s orthodontist is on Tumblr these days. She spotted the orthodontist’s post, which read:

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 fucking hard that she snapped it. That is the fucking funniest shit ever to me, this tiny 17-year-old girl thirsting so goddamn hard she busted steel.

The story sounded way too familiar to Sophia, so she checked the Tumblr account of the person who posted it and found out that it was, indeed, her orthodontist.

Michael B. Jordan spotted her tweet himself and seemed pretty amused.

The actor even offered to replace them.

The experience has helped Sophia to gain 7,000 new followers on Twitter (including Michael B. Jordan), has landed her countless interviews and has also resulted in an exchange of DMs with Michael B. Jordan, presumably to arrange a new retainer.
