Utah influencer causes havoc on women wearing body paint

Two women wearing body paint during a football blast in Utah have metastasized in a police investigation and statement from campus management. As far as we can tell, it all started with a pressure campaign from a Christian influencer named Melea Johnson.

In brief: Two women (unclear if they were Utah college students) watched the Utes 73-7 beating in Southern Utah with their upper bodies covered in body paint, depicting tank tops with the university logo on it. During the game, campus police finally asked the two women to put on shirts, and they did.

That relatively benign resolution might have been the end, but Johnson then shared her heartbreaking account of attending the game with her husband and two children. “It’s just not acceptable when minors are involved,” she whined. “Because of all the noise we made, an investigation is ongoing.” Utah local news interviewed Johnson on several occasions, including one newspaper running a lengthy statement from her about the need to “raise awareness of this issue.”

Johnson also expressed outrage that neither campus police nor bailiffs immediately fired the women and insisted they had broken a law against public decency. “They had a random ‘U’ painted on the back,” she said. “Our first instinct is that we have our children with us and oh my God, we have to make sure we protect them.” Johnson didn’t specify how many shirtless men — painted or not — she had to crane her neck to focus at length on the young women’s bodies.

The backlash from Johnson and others appears to have spurred further action by the school’s much-maligned University Police Department, which recently received a scathing audit castigating its practices and processes following several high-profile tragedies. on the campus. Campus police said they would “follow up this week to look for possible criminal charges”, while any student involved could face “possible non-criminal sanctions”. The Utah president and athletic director also released a joint statement about the incident, encouraging fans to come forward if they witness “rude or disrespectful behavior.” State-funded manpower will now be devoted to a high-stakes detail investigation into whether the women were indeed wearing only body paint or body paint and pasties.

The whole silly affair is a reminder: no one has more success pressuring cops into action than busy people complaining about women engaging in mildly salacious behavior.
