This Girl Thirsted So Hard For Michael B. Jordan In 'Black Panther' She Broke Her Retainer

Diply 8 Mar 2018

First, we got Kylo Ren's brick-house bod in The Last Jedi, and now we've got Eric Killmonger's rippling pecs in Black Panther. It has truly been a banner year for shirtless men in movies.

However, one girl's unquenchable thirst for Michael B. Jordan has got the internet screaming.

If you've seen Black Panther, then you are probably aware that Michael B. Jordan is a damn snack.

He is something.

We already know that the best superhero villains are also hotties, which means Eric Killmonger in Black Panther is one of the greatest villains of all time.

There is one scene in Black Panther in which Eric Killmonger challenges T'Challa to a battle to the death for the right to rule Wakanda as its king.

But what really matters about this scene is that Michael B. Jordan takes off his shirt.

Let me just tell you that the entire theater made a sound when it happened.

We knew that this movie was going to inspire record-breaking thirst, but we had no idea it would cause a dental emergency.

ICYMI: The cast of Black Panther is gorgeous. It's honestly surprising that we haven't heard more stories just like this one.

It all started when an orthodontist shared an incredible story on Tumblr in response to a post about Michael B. Jordan.

According to him, one of his patients was so overwhelmed by Michael B. Jordan's shirtless bod that she actually snapped her retainer.

Honestly, I get it.

The post quickly went viral, and the patient, 18-year-old Sophia Robb, actually spotted it on Twitter and realized it was about her.

Can you imagine?

Fortunately, Robb saw the humor in her situation and admitted that she was the patient from the story.

Of course, people were here for it.

Sophia's story is not only hilarious, but it's also super relatable. I mean, have you seen Michael B. Jordan? I don't blame her one bit for her reaction. That scene was deadly.

Sophia took her newfound internet fame in stride.

When Teen Vogue asked her what she thought about the viral post, she said: "I always thought he [her orthodontist] was the coolest person, so to see that I had the honor of making him laugh was great."

Other people directed their jokes at Sophia's orthodontist.

He actually had to deflect some criticism from people who accused him of violating Sophia's patient confidentiality right.

Sophia was quick to defend him and remind people that she identified herself.

Even Sophia's father chimed in.

Apparently, a sense of humor runs in the family.

"[Our] family has already set aside funds sufficient to purchase yet another retainer, in anticipation of Mr. Jordan's next film," he tweeted.

Honestly, her dad's tweets might be the funniest part of this whole story.

I'm 100% certain that my own father doesn't even know what Twitter is. Meanwhile, this guy is out here killing it.

And then the memes started popping up.

I am screaming.

At this point, Twitter users had started to tag Michael B. Jordan in the tweet in an effort to get him to respond.

This isn't the first time that fans have lost their minds over a shirtless scene in a blockbuster movie.

Adam Driver's shirtless bod in The Last Jedi almost instantly became a popular meme.

Just when we didn't think this story could get any better, Sophia noticed that Michael B. Jordan had started following her on twitter.

Twitter | @pixyrue

"It will be a summer wedding," tweeted Sophia.

I mean, this is basically millennial Notting Hill, right?

And because Michael B. Jordan is literally the best, he actually responded and even offered to pay for a new retainer.

What a time to be alive!

I'm not sure if I would be mortified or excited if this was me, but it's certainly been fun to watch it unfold.

We love that Sophia was so game to share her story and give us all a good laugh.

Twitter | @pixyrue

"Now I'm just worried that I'll never say anything as funny as that story," she told Teen Vogue.

So please, if you wear any sort of orthodontic gear, let this be a warning if you're planning to see Black Panther.

Because chances are, Michael B. Jordan won't be footing the bill for the rest of us.
