The students wore body paint as a cover-up for the Utah football match

University of Utah police are investigating reports that two students wore body paint during the Utah football game with the University of Southern Utah at Rice-Eccles Stadium on Saturday.

Witnesses said body paint was applied to T-shirts.

The students will also be referred to the Dean of Students for “potential non-criminal penalties,” University of Utah spokesman Christopher Nelson said.

According to a statement from the university, “After two women attended the game topless and applied body paint to their torso, a female officer asked them to wear their shirts. They complied with the request.”

One fan, YouTube influencer, Melia Johnson, posted on Instagram that security personnel allowed “2 TOPLESS GIRLS” to enter the stadium gate. “The security guards stared and let them pass… Nobody did anything. Is this literally what our world is coming to be?”

Themeleashow post continued, “Can’t we even go to a family friendly college football game without our kids and family exposed to nudity?? And the stadium and security of the event won’t interfere or escort them out because they are worried they will be sued for discriminatory laws?? 👈🏻 (That’s what they told me! ) Are you kidding me?! It’s not okay Tweet embed‼️

“Instead of this post being about how excited I am to take my kids to their first game… now I feel I should post about this issue to try and make some noise and make the stadium change their rules!” The post garnered more than 2000 likes.

The university is asking fans to voluntarily sign it FanUp . pledge which calls for “promoting a family-friendly experience”.

It also states that “The safety of student-athletes and spectators is our top priority. Spectators are reminded that anyone who engages in unsafe or inappropriate behavior is subject to immediate expulsion from the building. Fanop and make us proud!”

The pledge also states that “Profanity, racist or sexual comments and any other acts of intimidation directed against officials, student-athletes, coaches, visiting fans or team representatives will not be tolerated and are grounds for removal from the competition site.”

In a letter to Utah football fans, University of Utah President Taylor Randall and athletics director Mark Harlan wrote, “Anyone who engages in unsafe or inappropriate behavior will be removed from the building, may lose all privileges and access to future university events and may be informed to law enforcement.”

The message encourages fans to help “identify and recall inappropriate behavior so that our event staff can ensure a safe and great experience for student-athletes, coaches, staff and spectators.”

“If you see something, say something!”

The Utah state symbol is silent on whether body paint is considered body covering, but several sections define nudity or partial nudity as “any state of clothing or dressing in which the human genitalia, pubic area, buttocks, or female breast, at some point under The upper part of the areola, less than full coverage and opaque.”

Utah law cuts from Exception for breastfeeding “Wherever a woman may be lawfully, it does not under any circumstances constitute an obscene act, regardless of whether or not the breast is covered while nursing,” according to state law.
