Only on Twitter could Michael B. Jordan learn that a fan broke her retainer while watching him onscreen on "Black Panther," and then offer to replace it.

But that's exactly what happened after 18-year-old Sophia Robb realized her orthodontist had shared online how she snapped her retainer when Jordan took off his shirt during a fight scene with Chadwick Boseman, who plays the Black Panther.

"Wait. That girl is me. That is my orthodontist’s tumblr. This is a post about me? I’m going to kill myself," Robb tweeted on Monday.

Later she shared the story with Buzzfeed.

"So it was the scene where Killmonger took his shirt off for the battle to become king of Wakanda. I pressed my tongue against my permanent retainer and clenched my jaw so hard that the wire disconnected from my teeth," she confessed.

Robb said after initially being embarrassed, she had a good laugh with her orthodontist and his staff.

She thought that would be the end of it until she noticed a story about her -- though without her name mentioned -- circulating on Twitter.

Robb then tweeted that it was her. Her tweet was re-tweeted more than 131,000 times and earned more than 519,000 likes. Robb even changed her Twitter profile to "I'm the girl who broke her retainer over Michael B Jordan in Black Panther."

And she gained some new followers, including one Michael B. Jordan, who wrote her the next day, "Since I feel partly responsible for breaking your retainers, let me know if I can replace them."

Robb told Buzzfeed, "It honestly was worth breaking my retainer over."
