Many are now enjoying Michael B. Jordan's performance in Black Panther as Erik Killmonger, but one fan ended up having to make an emergency orthodontist appointment after watching it, as someone shared on Tumblr (via BuzzFeed). Upon further inspection of the Tumblr post's creator, Robb noticed that the poster was none other than her own orthodontist.

"Black Panther", which came out last month, has grossed over $920 million globally since its mid-February release, according to Forbes, and has won the domestic box office three weeks in a row. Apparently, when Jordan took off his shirt, Robb pressed her tongue against her permanent retainer and clenched her jaw so hard that it caused the metal to snap right off of her teeth. That girl is me. Little did she know her dentist would share the anecdote on Tumblr.

Jordan has moved on from breaking foes in "Black Panther" to breaking a retainer belonging to one of his biggest fans. "I always thought he was the coolest person, so to see that I had the honor of making him laugh was great", she told the publication.

After Robb later learned that she was the subject of the quickly circulating post, she responded, "Wait". Sophia told Teen Vogue that her orthodontist was able to glue it back together.

His wife, Sara, who was simultaneously questioned at a different location, is also a suspect in one of the investigations. The American president was speaking at the White House on Monday alongside Israel's prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu .

Directed by Ryan Coogler, the film stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Angela Bassett, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Florence Kasumba, Sterling K. Brown, Andy Serkis and John Kan.

After her self-exposing Tweet garnered more than half a million likes, Killmonger made a decision to reach out himself and offer to pay for the broken retainer.

"Since I feel partly responsible for breaking your retainers, let me know if I can replace them", replied Jordan.
