Replica shirts

Two female students wore body paint as shirts for Utah football game, school investigating

Two female students allegedly wore body paint as shirts and the University of Utah is investigating.

Fans attended the Utes game against Southern Utah University at Rice-Eccles Stadium on Saturday.

The images show the women wearing body paint to represent tank tops.

University of Utah spokesman Christopher Nelson told Deseret News that students could face “potential non-criminal penalties.”

According to a statement from the university, “After two women attended the game shirtless and wearing body paint on their chests, a female officer asked them to put on their shirts. They granted the request.”

One fan, YouTube influencer Melea Johnson, posted on Instagram that security personnel allowed ‘2 TOPLESS GIRLS’ into the stadium gate. The “security guards just stared and let them through…nobody did anything. Is this literally what our world is getting at? »

Johnson told the Deseret News that she and her husband saw the girls as they approached the same stadium entrance and tried to protect their children. She added that the paint on the young women’s backs had been applied “very haphazardly”.

“When they turned on their side I could see a nipple so I don’t know if those nipple covers they claimed to have were see through or didn’t fit well or I have no idea. All I know is that my problem with this and why I created such a stench about it is because it involves children and it happened in front of my children and the children of others. It is against the law and nothing has been done,” she said.
