If you’ve seen Black Panther, then you know the movie is great for a variety of reasons. It’s just icing on the cake that most, if not all, of the characters are extremely hot. Like Michael B. Jordan, who is by far the sexiest villain the Marvel universe has ever seen.

Seriously, just look at this man. He’s STUNNING.

He’s so hot, in fact, that one teen apparently broke her retainer when he took off his shirt in one Black Panther scene. No, seriously. She actually thirsted so hard she broke her retainer. Her orthodontist posted about it on Tumblr as proof.

And then, much to her embarrassment, the girl, Sophia, found the post online that called her out. She then proceeded to call herself out.

I mean, hey, you’ve got to admit it’s pretty hilarious (and, okay, relatable).

Her tweet ended up going so viral that even Michael B. Jordan himself noticed her.

In fact, he told her he’d replace her retainer since it was kind of, well, his fault they were broken.

Okay, you’ve got to admit, this is pretty epic. It just goes to show that thirsting over your favorite celeb will totally definitely get you somewhere someday. Just you wait. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
