The thirst is strong for actor Michael B. Jordan. So strong in fact, an 18-year-old teen clenched her jaw so hard that she bit through her retainer when Jordan took off his shirt during a scene in Black Panther. Since he is such a great guy and understands the responsibilities that come when generating that much thirst, the actor has offered to pay to replace the retainer.
In response to a Tumblr post about Michael B. Jordan's physique, user nitramaraho commented, “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 f***ing hard.”
"That is the funniest f***ing s**t ever to me this tiny 17 year old girl thirsting so goddamn hard she busted steel," he continued.
Before long, the post blew up and landed on the lap of the girl herself, Sophia Robb, who tweeted her horrifying revelation. "Wait. That girl is me. That is my orthodontist’s tumblr. This is a post about me? I’m going to kill myself"

Sophia was quick to hop on the PR wagon and did interviews with Buzzfeed and told Teen Vogue that if she ever saw Michael B. Jordan without his shirt on in real life, she would "scream." She continued, "The idea of him even seeing the post is so insane to me."
Turns out Michael B. Jordan is extremely online and saw Sophia's tale of metal-clenching lust. "@pixyrue since I feel partly responsible for breaking your retainers let me know if I can replace them," the actor tweeted.

Sophia responded that her dad had already replaced it and Jordan gave her a follow. In true Dad-fashion, her father hopped on Twitter to roast her and let the world know that they've set aside funds to buy another retainer in case Michael B. Jordan decides to take his shirt off again.
This is your father. I just clenched my jaw so hard my retainer snapped.— Charlie Robb (@crobb149) March 6, 2018
Indeed, everyone, she is OK. Furthermore, I can assure you all that her family has already set aside funds sufficient to purchase yet another retainer, in anticipation of Mr. Jordan's next film. Rest easy.— Charlie Robb (@crobb149) March 6, 2018
And just like that, Sophia will forever be known as the "Retainer Girl."
