University of Utah police are investigating topless women who wore body paint at a soccer game

Two female fans are at the center of a school police investigation after the couple appeared shirtless with only body paint on their breasts to a University of Utah football game.

The unnamed women were among thousands of fans crammed into Rice-Eccles Stadium on Saturday. They covered up after an officer asked them to put on shirts, a university spokesman said on the school’s website.

Still, the spokesman said university police are investigating and charges against the duo are not out of the question.

The students could also be referred to the dean of studies for other fields of study, said the spokesman.

The two women could be disciplined by the University of Utah, the school said.

Footage obtained by KSL News shows the two women with paint on their bodies in the form of a tank top with an apparent “U” in red across the chest and torso. The news station said some people were incredulous that the young women even came to the stadium to witness the Utes’ victory over southern Utah.

Utah has a lewdness law, which is classified as a Class B misdemeanor, that could apply in this case, according to KSL News.

YouTube influencer Melea Johnson, who brought her two children to the Sept. 10 game, claimed security guards stared at the topless women as they walked in.

“Is this literally what our world is getting at?!” the annoyed mom wrote on Instagram. “We can’t even go to a family-friendly college football game without our children and family being exposed to nudity?”

Johnson told the Deseret News in a statement that she wants to bring her children to sporting events without the youth being exposed to fornication or nudity.

“We love going to the football games in Utah! But that shouldn’t have happened. And that must never happen again,” she said.

University President Taylor Randall and Athletics Director Mark Harlan said in a statement, “Profanity, public intoxication, rude and disrespectful behavior, racist and derogatory comments, or verbal attacks on individuals or groups will not be tolerated.”

“Anyone who engages in unsafe or inappropriate behavior will be removed from the premises, may lose all privileges and access to future university events, and could be reported to law enforcement,” they also said.

Some social media users defended the women, including a Utah Libertarian nominee for the US Senate earlier this year.

“Free the nipple! Our obscenity laws discriminate against women,” she said wrote James Hansen on Twitter.

Other user argues The criticism of the two female fans was unfair.

“How many men went topless at the same game? The double standard is not cool at all,” tweeted A. Matthew Hall.
