Michael B Jordan offers to replace fan's retainer

Here's Why Michael B. Jordan Offered to Replace a Thirsty Fan's Broken Retainer

Earlier this week, a 17-year-old girl named Sophia Robb was forced to make an emergency orthodontist visit after she broke her retainer during a screening of the hit Marvel film. Here's the orthodontist's Tumblr post below.

For context, Robb went into the orthodontist last week because she broke her retainer clenching her teeth during one of the many scenes in Black Panther where Michael B. Jordan is shirtless. "That is the f****** shit ever to me this tiny 17 year old girl thirsting so g****** hard she busted steel".

Sophia admitted that the response to the post has been "overwhelming" but she's been trying her best to keep up with the response.

Ms Robb later clarified the phrasing, saying she had no intention of harming herself.

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

Robb later privately messaged Jordan, to which she announced that the star had replied to her private message. She said the reactions have been "overwhelming".

Turkey detains four Iraqi nationals for planning attack on US Embassy
Meanwhile, Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozda─č said that Turkey is the country most effectively fighting against Daesh. The Anadolu Agency said police detained four Iraqi nationals in connection with the threat against the embassy.

Robb told Buzzfeed when she went into her orthodontist's office to have the wire fixed, she made a decision to lay her story all out for the staff, who in turn had a good laugh about it.

Sophia's prayers were answered, because Michael B. Jordan has swooped to the rescue.

"Since I feel partly responsible for breaking your retainers let me know if I can replace them", Jordan tweeted, adding a laughing emoji.

She told BuzzFeed Tuesday that she "pressed my tongue against my permanent retainer and clenched my jaw so hard that the wire disconnected from my teeth".

Well, Sophia got exactly what she wanted. "The idea of him even seeing the post is so insane to me".
